On the new ABC drama October Road, actor Brad William Henke plays the friend of a screenwriter, but in real life hes the one penning scripts.
In fact, Henke and his wife just finished writing a screenplay together that draws inspiration from his high school friends much like series lead Bryan Greenbergs character does on the show.
Says Henke: Bryans character gets in a lot of trouble for writing about his friends, but mine havent done anything too drastic yet.
One place Henke doesnt find inspiration is the October Road set.
He explains: I never write on the set. My focus is completely on the character at all times and I really cant do two things at once.
October Road premieres March 15 on ABC.
