DAYS OF OUR LIVES' Patrick Muldoon (ex-Austin) is kicking off Christmas with his new romantic comedy, _ Holiday Road Trip_, on ION TV. In it, a recently heartbroken, stressed out staffer (Ashley Scott) of a major pet supply company gets tasked with taking both the company's canine mascot and the owner's slouchy son (Muldoon) on a cross-country media tour. Will hilarity ensue? "Playing opposite Ashley made me very, very happy she's gorgeous and really funny," Muldoon offers. "We fall in love along the way, but we have to overcome quite a bit as far as the personality differences between us. That's the fun of the movie."
Add in the fact that they're sharing a car with Auggie (the dog from The Artist) and are joined by an all-star cast that includes George Hamilton, Kip Pardue, Shelley Long, Susan Olsen and Wink Martindale, and viewers are guaranteed a good time. "It was awesome that George plays my father the guy is so funny and classy," Muldoon says. "He brought five of his expensive suits to the set and when the one that wardrobe provided me didn't fit, he loaned me one of his. And it fit like butter! So in the movie, I'm wearing George Hamilton's suit." Much like the chemistry that Austin shared with DAYS' Sami, Muldoon says that the sparks in this movie are something to behold.
