Warehouse 13‘s third season begins Monday, with a gaping hole where Secret Service agent Myka Bering, as played by Joanne Kelly, used to be (the character drove off mysteriously at the end of Season 2.) So we headed to the show’s set to track down remaining co-star Eddie McClintock, a.k.a. agent Pete Lattimer, to find out what’s going to happen to his character in Season 3, what it was like playing Myka for an episode in Season 2, and how he imagines Pete and Myka will finally put the moves on each other (assuming she comes back soon).
And here are a few bonus tidbits from Eddie that didn’t make it into the video:
On buffing up for Season 3:
“I spent a lot of time in the gym last year, but I wasn’t as dedicated as I was this year. And the network let me know that I was gonna be spending more time with my shirt off this year … so I hope that it shows!”
On not getting too comfortable in his lead role:
“Jack [Kenny], our exec producer, reminds me and the rest of the cast quite often that this is Warehouse 13, not Pete’s Warehouse or Myka’s Warehouse or Artie’s warehouse, so if we act up he could have us killed at any time.”
On his extracurricular acting endeavors:
“I got to work with Sarah Shahi [while playing a BBQ sauce magnate on USA Networks’ Fairly Legal], and she is spectacular and a wonderful lady. It’s always nice to be able to travel outside of your own little world. I also did a guest spot on Love Bites, which is a show by Greg Grunberg from Heroes, and I did that one along with Ken Jeong from The Hangover and Isaiah Mustafa, the Old Spice Guy.” [Ed. note: Eddie’s episode of Love Bites aired June 23; click here to watch it on Hulu.]
On what people say to him on Twitter:
“I get my balls busted a lot [by] people watching Bones [where Eddie played recurring character Special Agent Tim Sullivan]. They’re always snarking about my hair—I had bad hair on that show and it’s gonna be on my tombstone: ‘Eddie McClintock, a great guy, bad hair.'”
Warehouse 13 premieres Monday, July 11 at 9pm on SyFy.
