Playing the character of Jason McAllister on Brothers & Sisters might be a challenge, but actor Eric Winter is always up for the role. He's also managed to snag a part in the big-screen romantic comedy The Ugly Truth, starring opposite Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler.
Eric Winter talked to the Los Angeles Times about his role in the movie, which deals with the ultimate battle of the sexes. It's not too far from his performance on the ABC drama, as he's the subject of affection on both productions. He is the love interest of Kevin Walker (Matthew Rhys) on Brothers and Sisters, as well as Heigl's on The Ugly Truth.
"I play Colin, the neighbor of a woman (Heigl as Abby) who is so Type A that she has compiled a checklist of what she thinks the ideal guy should be," Eric Winter said. "And as it turns out, she thinks that guy is me. And Gerard Butler plays a colleague of Abby's who's going to coach her on what to do to make me want her. It's a lot of fun."
Even though this star is stuck in a love triangle on The Ugly Truth, he's rather tied down in real life. Eric Winter married his longtime girlfriend Roselyn Sanchez last November in Puerto Rico. If the name's familiar, it's because the lady's the actress who plays Elena Delgado on Without a Trace.
The couple has been spending plenty of time together, from having their regular exercise routines to sitting back and watching musicals.
"We're both big exercise buffs, and we love being active outdoors, which is why we like hiking in Fryman Canyon," Winter revealed. "It's crowded, but there are a couple of offshoot trails where you kind of get away a little bit. We have four dogs that we bring sometimes, but that can get a little chaotic."
As for their leisure moments, the actor said plays are their thing. "We really love the theater," Winter said. "We also go up to the Getty when we get a chance. We love the ArcLight for a movie. This is a great town if you just get out and find out what's going on."
