Last night I was snuggling in with my Boogs and watching my new TV love- October Road and guess who showed up? Kevin Weisman aka the greatest gadget man ever, Marshall Flinkman. Yep. He is a new cast member.
October Road is about Nick. Nick left his friends, family, girlfriend Hannah (played by Laura Prepon- formerly of That 70's Show fame)and his small hometown of Knight's Ridge, Massachusetts after high school graduation to conquer New York and become a writer. Basking in the greatness of the big city, Nick becomes an instant literary hit when he publishes his first book- degrading not only his hometown, but using his friends as characters, flaws and all.
After 10 years, Nick returns to Knight's Ridge with a bad case of writer's block and discovers that his friends aren't exactly happy with his success. He also learns that his long lost love, Hannah, has a kid- just about 10 years old. As he struggles to regain his voice and reclaim his friends, Nick fights with the choices he made and the consequences. (Oh, and Nick ain't half bad to look at either!)
Kevin Weisman plays a rivaling writer in the small town. His character may stay around for awhile. Welcome back to TV kid, hope your run lasts longer than Francie's!!
Check out October Road, Monday's at 10pm on ABC.
