Brandon Barash (Johnny) only just announced his decision to leave GENERAL HOSPITAL, but he’s already landed another gig, a guest-starring role on an upcoming episode of BONES!
“It felt really good to immediately book,” the actor confides. “It was a beacon from the universe that I was making the right choice. It felt good to be in a place where I could spend three hours on a two-and-a-half page scene. It was definitely an adjustment because I haven’t worked primetime since before I booked GH. There was one scene that we probably did 10 or 12 times. And my legs were sore… really sore!”
The reason for the shooting being so tiring is that Barash is playing Storm, a male stripper! So the bumping and grinding can wear you out. “The introduction to Storm is at a suburban woman’s birthday party,” he reports. “About 20 women, screaming and slapping me on the butt. There were breakaway pants involved.
“It was a lot of fun,” he adds with a laugh. “If things get tough, I can always turn to my newfound hobby!”
You can catch Barash (and quite a lot of him!) in the episode of BONES entitled “The Party In The Pants” airing Monday, April 15, at 8:00 pm EST on FOX.
