‘October Road’ Actor Likes Southern Hospitality, Soul Food

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Filming a television show in Atlanta has its perks – mainly southern style ribs.

Actor Warren Christie discovered that firsthand when he lived in “Hotlanta” for three months, filming the new ABC series October Road.

Christie, who plays Laura Prepon’s husband on the show, says the cast bonded by exploring the area and eating comfort food.

Says Christie: “You really can’t beat the ribs down there, but you have to be careful because it really starts to catch up with you.”

Although Christie misses the slower pace of Georgia and especially the “good old fashion southern hospitality,” it’s not quite enough to get him to pack his bags and move there for good.

As he puts it, “It’s fun seeing a new city but it’s always nice to come home to L.A.”

October Road premieres March 15 on ABC.
