David Bianchi is the star of the web series Sex Pose Man; here is a link to the first episode:
Q: What is Sex Pose Man about?
A: Sex pose man is an adult comedy series about the adventures and mis-adventures of Winston aka Sex Pose Man. He’s a gigolo, who is very tantric and is inspired by mundane things that he performs on his nightly clients unbeknownst to them. In a very hysterical way.
Q: What attracted you to the project?
A: SPM is truly an original idea and concept…it’s a character that came out of some early comedy work I had done and the idea evolved over time. Don’t get me wrong i love sex just as much as the next man but I don’t wanna freak anybody out while I do it! So SPM was an idea that spawned a couple years ago and we finally got around to putting it together.
Q: The most consistently clicked on interview I’ve ever done has been with a professional escort. What makes sex a more interesting subject to learn about than anything else?
A: Everybody loves sex some people admit it and some don’t it doesn’t surprise me at all that there is that much interest…what makes SPM so fun is that its good harmless adult humor…nothing to crass or raunchy about it.
Q: How did you prepare for the role?
A: Well I think about a lot of the great sketch ‘sexy’ characters of past. Deuce Bigolo, Superfly, Steve Martin on SNL with “Wild and crazy guys” and of course all the deuche-baggery that I see and pick up on in real life…and definitely some Matthew Mcconaughey LOL…but personally I had a sense of what and how the character would behave…I also train really hard in the gym and being physically ready was really the hardest part.
Q: What do you like about Hollywood?
A: It’s the mecca for film and television and it’s where the industry lives. If you want to work in the business you don’t have to live in LA but if you want to always work, then you should.
Q: What don’t you like about it?
A: Traffic, distractions, pretentiousness, homeless people.
Q: What makes a web series worth watching?
A: Whether it’s comedy or drama it has to be well executed…and that means camera, cast, color, music, tone, style BUT it has to be quick! And you have to have a through line that keeps the characters evolving…and most importantly entertain.
Q: What kind of training have you had?
A: Been acting since I was 5 or 6, went pro in 2005…have a BFA in Theatre and Film from Arizona State University (Magna Cum Laude)…I also have been to several prestigious Producer academies. BUT I write and produce for things I act in….because if I wait for anyone to give me anything I’d die of starvation. I was trained at ASU by Marshall Mason (4 time Tony Award Winner) and I’m a natural performer. Some people have great instincts naturally, those folks will succeed.
Q: What makes an actor an artist?
A: Any actor is an artist first, not the other way around. Transforming text into a palpable emotional delivery is an art form. The ability to do that is innate. You either have it…or you don’t. I’ve met a lot of people that don’t…and I’ve met some incredible people that really do!
