Canadian actor Dillon Casey plays a rookie hockey player on SOAPnet's racy new drama MVP. The show premieres at 11 p.m. on June 19 and reairs on ABC at 10 p.m. on June 20, following the Daytime Emmy Awards.
Entertainment Weekly chatted with Casey and learned there's more to the young actor than just a pretty face. Here's an excerpt of the interview:
Entertainment Weekly: So, about that underwear ad...
Dillon Casey: My friends see that and they rip on me pretty hard for it. You know what, it's not like I didn't know what I was getting myself into. I'm okay with it. It's part of the show, it's part of the character [who shoots an underwear ad in the second episode].
Look for hot young actor Dillon Casey on MVP.
Entertainment Weekly: Speaking of your character, Trevor Lemonde, he seems to get torn between the two possible lifestyles available to him as a rising star.
Dillon Casey: I can't get too much into it, because I don't want to give anything away, but Trevor is in a tough position because he's on this team, the Mustangs, and his hero, the person he looks up to the most, isn't Gabe McCall (Lucas Bryant), who's the captain and the nice guy. His hero is kind of the bad guy, Damon Trebouche. Trevor's sort of this eager young pup who wants to please everybody, and if he can get the approval of Damon then he's happy.
