It’s the forty-fifth episode of On The List with Brett Gursky. This week’s guest Geoff Stults (“Unforgettable”) talks all about his career as an actor. He was born in Michigan and raised in Colorado, before making the move to California to play college football. When his older brother George got discovered for acting, Geoff went along for the ride. His first role was on “Everybody Loves Raymond”, followed by a recurring role on MTV’s “Undressed”. From there, he joined the cast of the hit show “7th Heaven”, playing TV brothers with his real-life brother. Then his first leading role in a movie was “D.E.B.S.”, starring Sara Foster, Jordana Brewster, Megan Good, and Devon Aoki. He followed that up with memorable parts in two hit comedies: “Wedding Crashers” with Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, and Bradley Cooper and “The Break-Up” with Vaughn again and Jennifer Aniston. He then went back to his roots and played a football player in the movie “The Express”, a bio-pic about Ernie Davis. Soon he was starring on the ABC series “October Road” opposite Bryan Greenberg and Laura Prepon, which then led to his own series “Happy Town” from the same creators- Scott Rosenberg, Josh Applebaum, and Andre Nemec. Geoff next starred in the comedy feature “She’s Out Of My League” playing “Cam”, the boyfriend of Alice Eve’s “Molly”, who is the object of Jay Baruchel’s affection. He then worked for director Clint Eastwood in the film “J. Edgar” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, where Geoff played the role of real-life FBI agent Raymond Caffrey. He also played the character “Walter Sherman” (which is now the name of his dog) on the hit Fox series “Bones”, which led to his own spin-off for the character called “The Finder”. On his next show “Enlisted”, he starred opposite Parker Young and Chris Lowell as three brothers enlisted into the army. Now he appears on both “The Odd Couple” on CBS with Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon and “Grace and Frankie” and Netflix with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, playing husband to Brooklyn Decker. His new movie “Unforgettable”, Geoff is fought over by Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson. It hits theaters April 21st. And next up, Geoff stars in “Granite Mountain”, the true story of the crew of men who battled a wildfire in Arizona in 2013, with co-stars who include Jeff Bridges, Josh Brolin, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, Taylor Kitsch, James Badge Dale, and Andie MacDowell. In January 2018, Geoff will star in “Horse Soldiers”, co-starring Chris Hemsworth, Austin Stowell, Michael Shannon, Michael Peña, and Trevante Rhodes- another true story about CIA agents and special forces who go to Afghanistan right after September 11th to dismantle the Taliban.
