SERIAL SCOOP: You are a big Broadway star now.
MICHAEL PARK: [Laughs] No, I'm not. That is baloney. If there were B-List Broadway stars, I would be maybe a C-List Broadway star. Star is a subjective term, right?
SERIAL SCOOP: We consider you a star so just go with it.
MICHAEL PARK: I'll accept that.
|Michael Park as Asher Roslyn in Chicago P.D.|
MICHAEL PARK: Yes, I was in a three show stint on Chicago, P.D. I worked a lot with Jon Seda, who is a fantastic actor. He worked with Annie Parisse on The Pacific, so we talked a little about that.
Note: Park makes his Chicago P.D. debut on October 15.
SERIAL SCOOP: What else is happening with Michael Park right now?
MICHAEL PARK: We had our first rehearsal for Peter Pan Live!, on NBC December 4th everybody, with Christopher Walken, Christian Borle, Allison Williams, Kelli O'Hara. Everybody I know of and admire in the Broadway community is pretty much a part of this show so I'm excited about that.
SERIAL SCOOP: Would you ever return to daytime soaps?
MICHAEL PARK: You never say never. I'm just so glad my friends, particularly Maura West, is having such a great run right now on General Hospital. I miss her so much. So there's that. I would go to General Hospital to have a short little stint with Maura again and again and again.
