Another parade of real-life famous sports personalities will be appearing on Spike’s “Blue Mountain State” raunch fest in Season 2, which gets underway tonight – including players from “the Bengals, the Jets, the Broncos…We have Brian Bosworth, Bill Parcells…” reports the series’ Darin Brooks. Also, from the wrestling world, “We have Stacy Keibler and Chuck Liddell. We’re reaching out to the women a little bit.”
Brooks acknowledges, “By the time you’re done filming, you should probably be ashamed of yourself. I should be ashamed of myself. My mother is a little bit. To be honest, a lot of my friends Facebook me and say: ‘I can’t believe you’re doing this.’ Some of the scenes from last year are just obscene.”
However, he adds with a laugh, “It’s fun, it’s TV, you’ve got half-naked guys and girls running around.”
This season has Denise Richards as the ex-wife of Ed Marinaro’s coach character. At one point, handsome Brooks winds up with her – he in his underwear, she in a cheerleading outfit. “She was really game. We had a great time. You get a little nervous, a little self-conscious, with 40 people watching you, but it’s all good,” he says.
The former “Days of Our Lives” cast member points out that “With comedy, you have a lot more leeway and it’s a different experience than with drama. When it’s very dramatic and passionate, you’re opening up that part of yourself and relaying it through the camera…With this, the more dramatic we make it, the more funny it will be.”
