Interview with Austin Basis of "Beauty
& The Beast" on The CW 12/10/12
Austin was quite chatty, and we had a nice long interview
about his role on the show. I enjoy "Beauty & The Beast"
quite a bit, and I hope it is around next year. Austin plays
J.T., the nerdy scientist/professor friend of Vincent's.
Here are the sound clips of the interview. I hope to have
a transcript of it soon!
More Information about Austin:
With a highly coveted lifetime membership to the
ACTOR'S STUDIO, multi-faceted comedy actor, Austin Basis (CW's "Life
Unexpected") is the hottest breakout star of primetime this fall! Starring
on the CW's hit drama series, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (Thursdays at 9 p.m.
post-"The Vampire Diaries" time slot) alongside Kristin Kreuk ("Smallville")
who plays a homicide detective who was saved from death by something or
someone and Jay Ryan ("Terra Nova") as a doctor with a very dark side, Basis
charms as JT Forbes, the hospitable comic relief and likable confidant of
"The Beast" who has been helping Keller (Jay Ryan) guard his terrible
Landing roles in some on TV's fan favorite shows like "Curb Your
Enthusiasm," "Supernatural," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," and "NCIS,"
Basis is best known for his role as "MATH," the childhood friend and
roommate of Baze (Kristoffer Polaha) in CW's "lifeUNEXPECTED" alongside
Shiri Appleby. Basis also starred in the WB web series "Ghostfacers," a
spin-off of "Supernatural." Fuelled by his passion for entertaining and
performing, the Brooklyn native graduated from the Actors Studio Drama
School and is a lifetime member of the Actors Studio, alongside legends like
Al Pacino, Faye Dunaway and Estelle Parsons.
Diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at a young age, Austin is an advocate for T1D
research and awareness and works closely with the Juvenile Diabetes Research
Foundation. Traveling to Ottawa last week for JDRF's "Kids for a Cure Day,"
to educate parlimentarians on the difference between T1D & T2D, seek
additional federal funding, and to put a face to the disease, Austin serves
as a role model to children affected with T1D. In his free time he enjoys
playing baseball and tennis, hiking with his wife and writing poetry.
