A Gentleman's Guide's Bryce Pinkham Is Obsessed with Cate Blanchett, Russell Brand & A Time to Kill

Bryce Pinkham was transfixed by 'Derek,' knocked out by 'The Art of Fielding' and more.

Theater stars know what’s hot in entertainment, fashion and pop culture, and Broadway.com loves to tap in to the after-hours obsessions of our favorite stage actors. This week, we are getting movie, music and iPhone app advice from A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder star Bryce Pinkham, who plays Monty Navarro—the gentleman from the title—who learns that he's ninth in succession to become the Earl of Highhurst, and goes on a quest to murder the eight people (all played by Jefferson Mays) ahead of him in line. This Broadway favorite opens up about believing Cate Blanchett went to Hogwarts to study acting, being guilty of loving Broadway's A Time to Kill and why he's learning Portuguese.

TV SHOW: Derek
“How do the English manage to make something that's simultaneously so funny and so sincerely heartfelt? I've never cried watching American TV, but damn that Ricky Gervais, I was weeping like a wee babe at the end of the series.”

MOVIE: Blue Jasmine
“I was mesmerized by Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine. I don't pretend to know everything about acting, but I do know she is doing something in that film that I don't see many other actors do. I think she might be a wizard.”

SONG OR SINGER: Camaron Ochs
“When she's not busy writing new hit songs for people like Miley Cyrus, she's laying down some of her own caramel-voiced goodness. Check her out.”

STAGE SHOW (OTHER THAN MY OWN): A Time to Kill
“I am a big fan of director Ethan McSweeny. He gave me my first lead part out of school, and I'm thrilled that he is back on Broadway. I love John Grisham's story and can't wait to see that cast perform.”

BOOK: The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach
“Doesn't matter if you grew up playing baseball or not, this book is a beautiful read.”


ATHLETE: Jefferson Mays
“Come see A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, and you'll understand.”


APP: MindSnacks
“Apps for all languages! I am trying to brush up my Portuguese because I am hoping to sneak off to vacation at the World Cup in Brazil next summer!”

CELEBRITY: Russell Brand
“One of the quickest, smartest, most daring comic minds that seems to be out there.”


RANDOM OBSESSION: Antique Stores
“I never really buy anything, but I love being around all that old stuff.”
