Big Love's Douglas Smith Talks Acting & Archeology

Big Love's Douglas Smith Talks Acting & Archeology

Douglas Smith shows off a bit of his toned chest in this shot for Da Man magazine’s latest issue, featuring cover guy Garrett Hedlund!

Here’s what the 25-year-old Big Love actor had to share:

On being a musician and an actor: “I have recorded a full length album with my band His Orchestra and an EP with my side project Alaskan Summer. I write the majority of the songs for both bands. I am a performing artist. Acting and music fit under that umbrella quite naturally.”

On what he’d love to do if he weren’t an actor: “If I wasn’t an actor, I would be an archeologist.”

On when he knew acting was for him: “I had done a little acting as a kid, but I didn’t have an agent or anything. The decision came when I was 14 years old. I saw the movie American Beauty and it just stopped me dead in my tracks. At the time, I thought I wanted to be an Olympic runner. After seeing that movie, I quit the track team and got an agent.”

    Love..love….”Big Love.” And this young actor was very convincing as are all the characters on the show.

    BL was consistently great first 3 seasons and completely lost it 4th season…

    This was a rich character driven show and last season was like watching a bad skit from SNL. They will really have to win me back for its last and final season airing next month.
