Joshua Morrow: Quick Take

Quick Take With Joshua Morrow

What do you think of the Nick/Sally/Adam triangular? “I’m honestly having a blast. My very favorite storyline was Nick’s triangle with Sharon and Phyllis. It was fantastic television, great writing, and I had the opportunity to work with Sharon. [Case, Sharon] Michelle [Stafford, Phyllis]. The story took a really nice amount of time and wasn’t rushed. At the risk of sounding self-serving, I just thought it was the best triangle we’ve had since I’ve been on the show.”

How does this relate to the other? “I thought that our show needed another really strong triangle. If this is done correctly, and the writers trust me, Mark [Grossman, Adam] Courtney [Hope, Sally] enough to give us the right amount of leeway to tell it, this could be a great story.”

Courtney seems very confident. “I think it’s a wonderful opportunity for her to really show how difficult, painful and exhilarating this kind of situation is. Nick was in Sally’s position with Phyllis and Sharon and it was just a circus of emotions, and up and down, and the struggle and the sexiness, so that difficulty of the triangle was just amazing to play. Sally is in this position and it’s a chance for Courtney to show off some fireworks.”

Nick and Adam fought Sharon and Chelsea. You’re okay with going to that well again over Sally? “Oh, yeah. “Oh, yeah. I like the dynamic between Nick and Adam as both brothers and enemies. Nick has tried to accept Adam, but he’s fallen for Sally and Nick knows that Adam still loves her and Nick’s trying to be respectful but he wants this woman, so I’m having a blast. Courtney is an amazing person. She’s a breath of fresh air and it’s like a brand-new experience for me. I haven’t gotten to be in a story like this in a while and it’s been really fun. A big part of that is obviously getting to work with her and Mark on pretty much a daily basis.”

You’ve always said you enjoy working with Mark. “He’s a great dude. He is a serious worker and I admire his dedication to the project. Every note and beat must be authentic and accurate. He is a great guy and I admire his determination to do a good work. He’s really taken a completely different path with the character and my greatest compliment to him is I now can’t imagine anyone else doing Adam. Grossman plays Adam the role of a seeker who is trying to find his way. He’s got this mischievous glint to his eye, so he’s very Newman. He’s kind of a scoundrel under that armor that he wears of being the black sheep. Mark has done an excellent job. He’s very watchable.”

So your take on this triangle is that it’s got legs? “Yes and I really hope Josh [Griffith, co-executive producer/head writer] and the rest of the writers and production take their time with it and make it as messy and complicated and painful as possible.”

Do you think there’s a future for Nick and Sally? “I don’t for one second believe that Nick and Sally have this incredible love story ahead of them because I watch Adam and Sally together and I get it. They’ve got a great connection and it’s very complex. Even though Sally is with Nick now, she can’t shake Adam and my job as Nick is to make this decision as hard for her as possible.”
