Polished Edge: Josh Cooke of ‘Hart of Dixie’ on The CW
Q: Is your character, New York City novelist Joel, causing trouble in BlueBell, Ala., for his new love, fellow transplanted New Yorker Dr. Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson)?
A: Sort of, but I think maybe not directly -- maybe indirectly. Actually I caused a little trouble in Episode 3 for Zoe. She is a little hurricane, and Rachel is that way, too. I said to her the other day, “You make it so easy in scenes.” She’s so simple and easy.
Q: You’re wearing the classic hipster glasses sported by many writer types. How do you like them?
A: I’ve never worn glasses before, but I kind of like these. I’m a fan of them. I figure, one day, if I need to wear them, I’m going to get them.
Q: Did you know any of the cast before coming to “Hart of Dixie”?
A: Actually, Jaime King and I have worked together before. We did a little movie in Montana together a number of years ago, so it was great to see her yet again. And Rachel and I get along swimmingly well, very similar sense of humor.
Q: What have you learned about your other co-stars?
A: I hear Scott Porter’s quite a beatboxer. Apparently he won “Star Search” at one point. He had a group of guys (that sang a cappella).
Q: Did you know Wilson Bethel’s (Wade) mother, novelist Joyce Maynard, once lived with J.D. Salinger?
A: What? No, I’ll be asking about that. I had no idea.
