Taking time away from the set of his hit ABC series Revenge, Nick Wechsler fronted the November/December 2013 issue of Brink magazine.
While rocking a few poses for the Jared Kocka-shot spread, the 35-year-old actor chatted about his new popularity in Hollywood after signing on with the show and even revealed his thoughts on the accusations that Katherine Heigl is difficult to work with.

Check out a few highlights from Mr. Wechsler”s interview below. For more, be sure to visit Brink!
On dealing with pressure:
It never overwhelms me. Im not a star. Im just some dude. I can leave my house and get groceries and go to the gym and live my life, and nobody bothers me. They ask a lot of stuff on Twitter, and I cant answer everything, you know My policy is Ill just tweet about the episode when Im watching it, and on the commercial breaks, Ill start answering as many questions as I can before I come back from the commercial break. Im just trying to do what I can, but then I give myself most of the rest of the week off. Its mostly because I dont know what to do with Twitter. Im just an awful human being I guess. But no, it hasnt been overwhelming at all. Im not at the level where its suffocating.
On being a guest star of Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia:
Well, in comedies, the guest star well, lets just use the drama procedural on network television the guest gets cast and gets a lot of cool s*** to do. Youre often the one that has the neat emotional arc. You also get to play someone whos hiding something, and then its revealed. You get to go off of an emotional scene, blah, blah, blah. Primary cast is for them, its a lot of talking to suspects, and you can do it in your sleep. In comedy, the main cast gets to do all the cool s*** and the guest cast comes in as a straight man. My character wasnt a total straight man. It was a bad guy, and its a hilarious twist for me. Ive just never been satisfied by my own performance, which is probably because I take comedy very seriously. I just want to be I dont know It matters more to me than drama, to be honest. I just love that show, and those guys are brilliant. I watch what they do, and I go, I wanna do that! How do I get to play like they do
On working with Katherine:
Im actually still good friends with her, and shes just like I can see how people arrived at these conclusions about her. I wasnt there for a lot of what people are complaining about. I guess I can see how it would be misconstrued or [they] took it the right way. There are probably moments when she shouldnt have done this, but actually I think that a lot of the time things are misconstrued. At this point, people are waiting for her to be an a**hole, and I think thats really when they start looking into If I deliver a thing in a way or [get her to] say something, in her case, people will air it. It sucks, because shes actually a great person, and people are usually surprised when I introduce her because of what theyve heard, you know Thats the thing shes not that person. Its just we have all been roughed and toughed in this business. And you dont want to be on the business end, hopefully, thats where this led to. But I dont know, I cant comment on that stuff. I just know that shes been amazing to me. I love her dearly, and shes been such a good friend to me, and I think shes trying. Shes not happy with some of her decisions.”
