Five Things To Know About 2 Broke GirlsΓÇÖ Austin Falk!By Delaina Dixon | May 4, 2015 | Entertainment, Gal Approved
If youΓÇÖve been religiously watching 2 Broke Girls like us (we canΓÇÖt get enough of cheeky Garrett Morris!), then you may have noticed another hottie in the diner. #WBWD┬áAustin Falk plays Nash, the handsome Irish waiter turned dishwasher turned Guess model whoΓÇÖs also MaxΓÇÖs yummy boy toy, yes, girl!
We searched the web for more info after he first appeared on the series three weeks ago, and could barely find a thing. Now that doesnΓÇÖt make a DivaGal happy. So we started searching every Brooklyn diner to track him down (ok, we did a smart Twitter search), and got Austin on the phone! Here are five things we know youΓÇÖre itching to know about this new TV hunk.
He landed the role in a 14-hour span. Austin was actually auditioning for a Disney role when his manager said he had to make it to his 2 Broke Girls audition with minutes to spare. ΓÇ£I had to be at the Warner Bros. lot by 7 or they wouldnΓÇÖt let me read.ΓÇ¥ Luckily he lives close and made it in time. He was then told to get a good nightΓÇÖs sleep, as he may be at his first table read the next morning. ΓÇ£He said you may need to be ready to by 8:30 a.m. and be there. It was not easy to sleep that night!ΓÇ¥
HeΓÇÖs not really Irish. You may have figured this one out. Austin hails from Canada and grew up in Arizona. He met with series showrunner Michael Patrick King. “IΓÇÖd been keeping in the character, which was originally British, but Michael said, I’m just curious, can you do an Irish accent? I didnΓÇÖt realize, but Michael is Irish American, and said thatΓÇÖs what weΓÇÖre going with.” So where did he perfect his brogue? He and his roommate in college used to break into accents when school got too crazy!
He works hard for the body. Austin has a pretty disciplined workout routine to maintain his ridiculous physique. Our costume director.┬á “Fitness has always been a big part of who I am, eating healthy and getting enough sleep. The wardrobe designer joked with me that with my clothes, it’s going to get less and less each week until we get to a point where we’re just picking different colors of underwear,” (and we thank her for it!). Austin admits he must have done 1000 situps and pushups when he was shooting. “ItΓÇÖs hard work.” And we thank him for that!
HeΓÇÖs still waiting to kiss Max! Sure, that busty waitress keeps talking about how slamminΓÇÖ her sex life is with Nash. “They talk about a lot of stuff that makes you blush,” but it’s more implied Austin points out. “So there hasn’t been a kissing scene between Kat Dennings and I.” Yet!
HeΓÇÖs already said ΓÇ£I Do.ΓÇ¥ Yep ladies, Austin is married. But donΓÇÖt sigh ΓÇÿcause the reason he loves his bae is just so darn precious. ΓÇ£The deciding thing at the end of the day is someone’s drive, how driven you are to want to accomplish what you want to accomplish, which is why I’m in love with my wife. She’s finishing up her Bachelor’s. Her drive to not let┬á anything get in her way and push through … from the first time I met her, that was totally a magnetic thing about her.” They’ll be celebrating their first anniversary in a few weeks, awww!
Catch Austin tonight on 2 Broke Girls, airing Monday, May 4 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
