Paulo Costanzo's Version of 'Royal Pains' Sounds Kind of Like 'Game of Thrones'

Each summer, the rich (and their trophy wives) flock to the Hamptons in Long Island, N.Y., to escape the city heat in favor of private boats and garden parties. This playground away from the city sets the scene for 'Royal Pains,' a quirky comedy offering from the USA network, which begins its third season on June 29.

Mark Feuerstein stars as Hank Lawson, a level-headed young doctor who is wrongfully accused of a patient's death and forced to work as a medical hired gun for the wealthy residents of the Hamptons. Paulo Costanzo, in contrast, plays his womanizing, freewheeling younger brother, Evan, whose exploits result in little more than headaches for Hank.

AOL TV sister site PopEater caught up with Costanzo, a native Canuck-turned-New Yorker who many will remember from his hilarious turn as a thinking man's stoner in the 2000 comedy 'Road Trip.' And he proved that he can be a royal pain in real life -- albeit good naturedly -- when he spoke about the "wonderland" that is 'Royal Pains,' his past life as an alien and not talking about 'Road Trip.'
