Wii with the Stars: Darin Brooks...

Admittedly I knew my most recent Wii with the Stars victim...err, guest Darin Brooks from his time as the "good with his hands/good with hearts" Max Brady in NBC daytime's Days of our Lives. It's a role he made a fan favorite and for which he event won an Emmy during his four-year tenure. And though came back to the show recently for a brief period to pay his respects to his (and everyone's) Great-Gran, Alice Horton, he has quite a few other projects in the works. Most notably he is currently starring in the second season of Spike TV's college football comedy Blue Mountain State. But unlike his character over there, Brooks is an over-achiever, so when he has "down time" on hiatus from that show, his gears are constantly turning, prepping other projects.

Brooks has started First Chance Productions, a company for which he is writing and plans to produce, as well. And following in another My Life, Made Possible by Pop Culture's favorite former Days of our Lives star's shoes, one such project deals with heaven, hell, angels, demons, Azazel, Lucifer, and a family curse that has a young man hunted and his mother and girlfriend killed. But don't let me spoil it for you: let Brooks explain it himself!

Brooks, whose first time playing Wii was with me during this interview, talks about all of his current and upcoming projects while we play a friendly, if somewhat distracted, game of tennis! Check it out!
