Pratt plays goofy jock Bright Abbott on the WB’s Everwood. The show also stars Emily VanCamp, Gregory Smith, Treat Williams, Debra Mooney and John Beasley.
When you have the first season of Everwood, the pilot was just awesome, just perfect. There was this 30 episode arc in his head that was his vision. If you see the first couple season on DVD, you can really see how awesome that was. The show totally had its stride, and it’s like passing the baton to someone and keep that stride, it’s difficult. Because a lot of the stories that kept the show so compelling, you have to stop telling after a while. Ephram and Amy only works as long as it takes to get them together, then its like, ‘Now what?’ it’s like [trying to create] part two of ‘Romeo and Juliet.’ The [strength] of the show [has been] that it’s something that’s it’s a little atypical of the WB, which is why we have fans outside the typical demographic recognize us. I don’t know, I think we’re becoming a little more close to what their core audience is used to, and that’s definitely a change from what it was in the beginning.
