John C. McGinley: It Re-Wet My Appetite To Do Stuff Live

Posted: Updated:

For John C. McGinley, star of the new TBS comedy series, "Ground Floor," it all starts with the voice.  A notion he credits to two-time Academy Award winner, Daniel Day-Lewis.

"I heard Daniel Day-Lewis talking about this, with 'Lincoln.' He said the first thing he wanted to find was the president's voice, and I know what he meant.

"The studio came to me during the pilot and said, 'Do you need a voice doctor?" and I said, 'No! This is the guy you're going to get for, hopefully, 10 years.' And then they left me alone.

John joins Steve Edwards and Lisa Breckenridge on Good Day L.A.

    Sutter Zachman had his first record deal when he was barely out of his teens. You may have seen the Orange County native was on stage at the Largo and other hot clubs around LA. He then left town...after what he called a few "bouts" with the music business, but now he is back with a new EP called ‘Repeat Offender.'
