I spoke with Jason Dottley for nearly two hours a few months ago about life on his new television series Sordid Lives, the incredible tight-knit cast, taking it all off onscreen, and his husband Del Shores. While I couldn't fit everything we spoke about in, he was a delight and we are super-excited to see the premiere of Sordid Lives tonight on Logo TV.
Chris, Hunk du Jour: Hi Jason! So you're starring in the television version of Sordid Lives... how did filming go?
Jason Dottley: Oh, it was great! We worked at a pace of maniacs, filming 12 half-hour episodes in 35 days... about 35 fewer than you actually need. It could not have been more fun, I mean -- you've seen who I get to work with, so no complaints from this end.
Hunk du Jour: We love the film -- where does the TV show pick up from in relation to it?
Jason Dottley: The series starts before the film, it's a prequel. It is the day Tammy Wynette dies and for those Sordid Lives fans, we all understand that it would be a pretty big day in Brother Boy's life. My character, Ty, is in LA -- therapist hopping, as Ty likes to do.
Jason Dottley: There are great therapist cameos, Margaret Cho, Carson Kressley, Candis Cayne, and then my husband Del Shores has a brief cameo as well.
