It’s the seventieth episode of On The List with Brett Gursky. This week’s guest Travis Van Winkle talks all about his career as an actor. First, Travis and Brett talk about how they share the same birthday- November 4th (though Travis explains that his birthday is both November 4th and November 5th). They also talk about how they’re both dog lovers. Then Travis tells Brett everything that went into preparing for his role of “Cary Conrad” on the #1 Netflix series “You”. He talks about working with the cast, including Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti, and shooting the much talked about scenes from episode 5 and episode 8. Travis also details the workout and nutrition plans that went into transforming his body for the role of “Cary”. Next, Travis takes Brett back to the beginning, including growing up in Peachtree City, Georgia and his earliest memory of wanting to be an actor. Travis talks about moving to Los Angeles, the first acting jobs he booked on TV shows, and his first studio movie: “Accepted” with Jonah Hill, Justin Long, and Blake Lively. He then shares behind-the-scenes stories from his next studio movies: “Transformers”– directed by Michael Bay and starring Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, “Meet the Spartans”, and the 2019 reboot of “Friday the 13th”. They even discuss the possibility that Travis’ characters named “Trent” are actually the same person in both “Transformers” and “Friday the 13th”. Then Travis talks about his recurring roles on hit TV shows like “90210”, “Happy Endings”, and “Hart of Dixie” and his series regular role on the hit TNT show “The Last Ship”. Travis also chats about moving to New York City to film the CBS series “Instinct” opposite Alan Cumming. Last but not least, Travis offers advice to aspiring actors.
