Ted McGinley was hunky on "Dynasty" right after he was hunky on two of ABC's other shows, "Happy Days" and "The Love Boat." Now our former Clay Fallmont has two films in the works.
"Eavesdrop," written and directed by Matthew Miele, is currently filming in New York. McGinley plays a character named Grant in the movie. "This unique motion picture is intent on continuing the grand tradition of films that have explored similar themes such as the Peeping Tom in Hitchcock's, 'Rear Window' and snooping in Coppola's 'The Conversation,'" the film's bio says. "The entire film will take place real time in a cafe in Manhattan during a busy brunch hour. An eclectic cast is currently being assembled to portray the patrons at several different tables that will eavesdrop on one another in a variety of intriguing ways." The film also stars Christopher Lawford, first child of Peter and Pat Kennedy Lawford.
"Privileged" is also classified as filming right now, is a drama directed by Jonah Salander and written by Steve Allison. McGinley plays Mr. Webber amid a huge cast that also includes Aaron Ashmore, the new Jimmy Olsen on the CW's "Smallville," and Tatyana Ali.
