Wednesday Morning Man: Johann Urb! seems to have a hit on its hand with Eastwick and that’s good news for Johann Urb, one of the male stars of the show.

I had a chat with the very tall and very handsome Johann (he’s a former model) recently and he’s excited to be a part of the cast that also includes Rebecca Romijm, Lindsay Price, Jamie Lee Newman and Paul Gross.

“I play a guy named Will and he’s a love interest to Lindsay Price,” Johann said. “Her and I have been friends for five years so it’s a real pleasure to work together because we’re pretty tight anyway. It’s a lot of fun.  I’m just here for the ride and enjoying every day whatever it is. I love my job, I love the people I work with.”

Johann isn’t new to series television. He had a recurring role in the FX series Dirt and five years ago, starred in The Mountain with Penn Badgley and Oliver Hudson on the old WB: “I had long hair and I was a bad guy. On [Eastwick] I’m the opposite and probably the only good guy.”

Eastwick isn’t the only new project Johann is excited about these days. He’s also one of the stars of the upcoming feature film 2012, a post-apocalyptic thriller also starring John Cusack, Woody Harrelson and Thandie Newton.

When we talked, Johann didn’t mention another new movie he’s got coming out on DVD. It’s called Pornstar and his character is named Cannon Balls. I don’t know about you, but I’m kinda curious!
