During my brief flirtation with the ABC soap opera ?All My Children? as a newlywed in the late 1980s who didn?t refuse his wife much of anything, let alone his company, I always remembered the character of Jackson ?Jack? Montgomery.
The actor who portrayed Montgomery, Walt Willey, seemed out of place to me, a little too light-hearted even when the scene called for serious, a guy having fun at all times, winking to the audience that he knew the storylines were often sillier than silly.
Fans of this show know I?m not a regular watcher of the soaps, but I know Willey is not your average soap star, either. When he?s not taping new episodes of AMC, he?s working as a standup comedian. And when he?s not doing either of those professional pursuits, he and his wife run the Crystal Mesa Farm Bed & Breakfast in Sante Fe, New Mexico.
And on Saturday, September 25, Walt Willey will take a break from all of that to be the celebrity guest host of ACME Saturday Night at the ACME Comedy Theatre in Los Angeles. Show time is 7 p.m. Pacific. Studio tickets are $10 online, $15 at the door. You can order tickets or watch the show live online free: http://www.acmecomedy.com. (NOTE: This appearance was rescheduled from June, when this interview was recorded.)
Don't miss his story of flying home with fellow actor Val Kilmer and how they spent the time discussing... Susan Lucci!
