Locals will be seeing a lot more of West Newbury native Todd Grinnell, who landed a role on NBC's "Desperate Housewives" after starring on NBC's short-lived series "Four Kings" with Seth Green and Josh Cooke.
"It's a neat experience to be on a show that's got this many viewers — people just love it," Grinnell said. "It's a totally fun role to play, and Marcia Cross, Kyle MacLachlan and Shawn Pyfrom, who I've been mostly working with, are outstanding actors and people. Everyone is totally welcoming, and it's a real treat to work with everyone."
"In the second episode, it was revealed that my character on 'Desperate Housewives' did an adult movie to put himself through med school," Grinnell said. "That's been a source of fodder for my friends. And last night at the supermarket, the bagger looked over at me and said 'I saw your video,' and we had a laugh."
Though he suffered the shows and pilots been cancelled, Todd says "Wouldn´t trade acting for anything. "It's not an easy path," Grinnell said. "But to me, it's the greatest job in the world."
