Paul Sparks, who plays Mickey Doyle on the network’s Prohibition-era drama Boardwalk Empire, has stepped forward to volunteer for any part on the modern day comedy about 20-something females.
The 41-year-old actor made his case to Celebuzz on the red carpet at Sunday’s 2013 Screen Actors Guild Awards, telling our cameras, “I have so many things I can do for [Dunham].”
“I play a character who never gets to have sex,” he continued, adding with a smirk, “I can do that.”
However, don’t think Sparks it ditching his ties with Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) and the rest of the Boardwalk gang just yet — he’s still very passionate about the bootleggin’ drama.
“I think it’s a very intelligently written character drama that goes to interesting places,” he told us. “I think the group of actors that are on it are strange and wonderful and different and — weird and very talented.”
“And then all that sex and the costumes — I mean, it’s just the whole package.”
Boardwalk Empire was nominated for a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance By an Ensemble Cast in a Drama Series, but lost to PBS’ Downton Abby.
