Soap Opera Weekly
(JACK, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) joins the family on ABC's
comedy Dharma & Greg this week when he guest stars
as Greg's greed cousin. "Greg's father, Edward, is about
to hand over the business," explains Ashford, "and the big
question is, 'Who's going to get it?' So Dharma and Greg
go visit the family in Dallas, where one person is more
dysfunctional than the next. [My character is] not exactly
a threat to the throne. He's kind of the local color?"
Ashford found the prime-time change of pace refreshing.
"They have a huge team of writers who are always writing,
changing, writing, changing," he reports, awed. "They come
right down to the set! We're doing our run-through, and
they're going over it. It's really fascinating. In daytime,
everyone's spread all around, and there's no time. The script
comes, and you have to get it done.
Along with Ashford, this episode features guest stars Leslie
Charleson (Monica, General Hospital),
Julie Pinson (Eve, Port Charles)
and Morgan Fairchild (ex-Sydney
Chase, The City). "Dharma Does Dallas" airs
Tuesday, Feb. 20, on ABC. Check local listings
