It’s early on a Monday morning on the Hollywood sets of CBS’ new medical drama “Three Rivers,” and star Alex O’Loughlin, wearing only scrub pants and a striped bathrobe, is sprawled across a hotel bed.
Suddenly there’s a burst of rock music, sending O’Loughlin , who plays transplant surgeon Dr. Andy Yablonski, stumbling into the next room. There he discovers a patient playing the video game “Rock Band.” By the end of the scene, the two are jamming.
Between takes, O’Loughlin shows off his air-guitar skills with the game, then picks up a real acoustic guitar and makes some music.
“I was just mucking around,” he says. “It’s a beautiful guitar they’ve got in there. It’s a vintage Gibson. It’s divine. It’s worth a lot of money, so I’m hesitant to pick it up. But it’s its karma. It’s supposed to be played.”
PS. We really think Dr Andy could have done this without that big robe. Who sleeps with their robe in any case? 😦
