Baby Daddy – “Life’s A Beach” Official Promo

Whats on the agenda for your character [Danny Wheeler] in the upcoming season?

Derek: “Danny has a lot going on. He still has those feelings for Riley and hes trying to figure out his feelings towards Ben and Riley, trying to figure their relationship out and when he wants to take his moment to actually tell his dream girl how he feels. At the same time, hes also exploring some other options, hes dating other girls and hes still going through all the same stuff with his team and not being one of the best players. Hes trying to solidify his position on his hockey team for his job. Its more crazy situations that involve the baby and costumes. Its bigger than ever. Its a great time!”

What do you think about Danny not stepping up and telling Riley how he feels?

Derek: Thats a hard question because when you look at their history, theyve known each other for so long and theyve been best friends since they were kids. I think its just one of those things where hes scared to lose her in that way and feels like if he really expresses his true feelings for her that their relationship as best friends isnt going to be the same at all.Hes definitely waiting for the right moment to strike. Its hard because it seems to never want to come.

Why do you think he hasnt told his brother [Ben] about his feelings for Riley?

Derek: Ben is the only one in the show that actually doesnt have any idea about Dannys feelings. He has never heard anything that Danny has said about Riley and even Riley is somewhat aware of Dannys feelings at this point just due to one voicemail. I think the main reason is because Ben and Riley are trying to figure out if theyre right for each other and hes his brother. I think it would make it worse if Ben knew that Danny had these feelings and it would complicate things a lot. I think Danny is pretty much trying to keep it a secret for those reasons, becausehe doesnt want to lose his relationship with his best friend and his brother.

What is it like to play a comedic role? Is it hard to keep a straight face?

Derek: “Yes, its hard on this show because were working with our friends and the hardest part about it is just getting through the scenes without cracking up. We have such a good time. This is sort of the last thing that I thought that I would be working on. When I first dropped into L.A., I wanted to be a superhero! I wanted to do action movies and now that Im working on a live audience sitcom, its almost the last thing I thought I would be doing, but Im having the most fun I ever could.”
