James Wolk has been on a lot of great shows like ‘Shameless,’ ‘Happy Endings,’ ‘The Crazy Ones,’ and his new movie ‘Always Woodstock.’ (editors note….the interview was recorded a couple of weeks ago when the Michigan homecoming game took place)
Aspiring singer, Catherine Brown (Allison Miller), finds herself living a life she never imagined. Stuck at a dead end job in New York City at a mega music record label, Catherine spends her days as the wrangler for the label’s most difficult star (Brittany Snow). But when Catherine is unceremoniously fired, and then comes home to find her long time fiancé (Jason Ritter) in the arms of another woman, she decides that it’s time for a change. Selling off her engagement ring, Catherine moves back to her family home in Woodstock, to get back to what she has always wanted to do: write music. One night at a local bar, Catherine stumbles into handsome town doctor Noah (James Wolk), and cannot deny the moment of magic between them. Little by little, Catherine starts to find herself, and write music, with the help of local legend, Lee Ann (Katey Sagal). As she and Noah start to fall in love, Catherine realizes that becoming successful means becoming your true self first.
