In the first two episodes of Logo TV’s “The A-List: Dallas” we’ve seen Dallas native and real estate finance mogul Chase Hutchinson (Facebook, Twitter, blog) fuss over his hair and host his annual party that had a “Footloose” style flash mob led by Ashley Kelly, James Doyle drunk and bartending, Phillip Willis punching James then exclaiming with the best line of the season so far, “Mark my word. This is not over!” and Taylor Garrett who pushes Phillip into the pool in anger with Levi being an unintended pool toss as well.
Sound juicy so far? Well, Chase is next up in my interview series from the cast. We spoke prior to episode 2 and didn’t have a whole lot of time, but in our few minutes you’ll see there’s a few more sides to Chase that we have yet to see on the show.
Here’s the interview:
Ifelicious: Your bio on Logo TV’s website says, “this serial ultimate playboy has left behind a list of broken hearts longer than his investment portfolio,” so what’s that all about?
Chase: That could fill 15 minutes. (laughs)
Ifelicious: We don’t see that in the first episode. Everything’s Levi, Levi, Levi, so explain that to me.
Chase: Number one, that is not a direct quote from me. It’s funny. Levi definitely has his charm, and likes his multiple dating partners, but you’re definitely going to see me getting a little bit into that [too] as the season progresses. It’s been a fun summer. I’ll tell you that. Lots of kissing, and lots of boys.
Ifelicious: That’s the best way to spend the summer.
Chase: Ya, that’s what I tell ya, honey. It’s the best time to be single if you’re going to date. It’s the best time to be dating more than one person at the same time.
Chase: I might give Levi a run for his money. We’ll see.
Ifelicious: Do you and Levi like the same kinds of guys. Might we see some competition during the season?
Chase: Not that I know of. I will say this, Levi is a true friend to me. I mean I love the boy as a friend. We definitely would’nt tread on each other’s turf. We both like to date, but if he knows that I like somebody, he’ll stay away.
Ifelicious: Your Logo bio also mentions that you’re looking for Mr. Right, but it still sounds like you’re doing the ultimate playboy thing. So are you really looking for Mr. Right? Are you really at the place to settle down?
Chase: I’m more than happy being single, for one. It’s fun to date…but the people I can truly say I have loved in the past, I have not tried to look for. They have just kind of sprung up on me.
Ifelicious: I have to ask you about your hair because that seems to be a big part of you. Do you have a bunch of products and do it yourself? Do you have a favorite stylist?
Chase: This is serious business. The dating part, not so serious…It’s my quality time. It’s an extension of my personality, honey. If you see me in the bathroom, I’m serious. I’ve made a couple of people cry, so if you see me with gel and a blow dryer leave me be. It’s not a laughing matter, honey. There’s lots of stuff going on with the hair, honey. I don’t always have the authority to choose what it wants to do when I wake up. When it’s a good hair day, I just count myself blessed and say, ‘thank you, Jesus.’
Ifelicious: Do you go to the salon a lot?
Chase: There is one person who has touched my hair in the past four years, and he and he alone. His name is Steven Keith, and he’s amazing. I have entrusted him with my hair.
Ifelicious: A guy named Neil popped up on Twitter today and told me that we’ll see him mugging down with you. What does that even mean?
Chase: I think there’s a short little B-roll piece of me and him kissing in the first episode. He’s actually a good friend of mine, and you might just see a little bit more of us during the season.
That was our chat. I’m excited to see if Chase really does give Levi a run for his money when it comes to dating, and the whole hair thing and calling me “honey” is just so endearing in that southern gentleman kind of way.
