INTERVIEW: Y&R's Kanin Howell (Frank)
"They actually wanted me to come in and read for a contract role a month prior, and I was too busy doing other stuff. So they called me back in for this, and it was good -- it was one of those bad guy roles, but it has something else going on. I really like the role. I went in and read for Matt Kane, and the rest is history. I'm shooting another episode tomorrow, and then next week I have another one.

"It's a recast, so I thought they were just gonna kind of chew me up, spit me out, in these first three episodes. But then things took a turn for the better, and my fourth episode is when I really break out and my character starts going a whole other way."

ATWT's Jon Lindstrom to star in the film You Can't Have It All
The film, a romantic comedy about self-discovery that draws a distinction between contentment and happiness, stars Lindstrom, Wendie Malick, and Chris Murrah in his feature film debut. Multi-millionaire/socialite Paul Grecco (Lindstrom) seems to have it all. Or does he? After selling his lucrative business, he's faced with retirement, and more money and time on his hands than he knows what to do with. The sudden changes in his life cause his overbearing (but well-meaning) sister Elise (Malick) to decide that giving Paul a dog would be the perfect solution. With little else to do, Paul assumes the daily dog-walking routine in the park, where he encounters Andy Chance (Murrah), a gay advertising whiz, who happens to walk his dog on the very same schedule. What starts as a casual daily meeting in the park, eventually develops into something more. Soon Paul is questioning his life choices and must decide between the contentment he thought he had and the happiness he comes to realize has eluded him.
