While George Tucker (Scott Porter) seems to spiral a bit, at least early on season three of Hart of Dixie, Wade Kinsella (Wilson Bethel) is actually getting things together-- well, as much as he can. The fun-loving, laid back guys tends to get in his own way when it comes to relationships, but it has been proven that when it comes to business, a lot of other obstacles pop up.
"Things are officially in his way; that's where we pick up," Bethel confirmed when LA TV Insider Examiner caught up with him in Los Angeles.
But Wade would never let that stop him-- nor change his attitude about attacking his dream.
"Wade is in a good place! He's kind of a little bit in territory. He's not really romantically involved; he's basically just kind of running the Rammer Jammer with Lemon and doing his thing," Bethel said, calling that relationship "fun" and a "brother/sister thing."
"He's just kind of doing his Wade thing, which I appreciate. He's just a dude doing his dude thing."
But since Wade is a lone wolf in the early part of the third season-- at least romantically-- there isn't much room for him to be the obvious eye-candy the show has used him as in the past.
"I haven't been shirtless once in three episodes," Wilson revealed. "We'll see where it goes, but right now I am all too grateful; my torso thanks [them]!"
Wilson may be staying clothed on Hart of Dixie-- for now-- but he's going one step further for his new online series through the CW Seed. On L.A. Rangers, a series Bethel also created through his ongoing partnership with the digital contingent of The CW, he is suiting up-- in a park ranger uniform-- to portray one of the two titular characters who work in Los Angeles' own Griffith Park.
"[They] are aspiring filmmakers, and every episode is us kind of getting bored in the park, and our imaginations take us into fake film worlds. So every episode takes us into a different genre movie. We have a sci-fi episode, a western, a kind of Quentin Tarantino homage, we have a full Japanese animation episode, and a romance/fantasy," Bethel previewed.
"There's a full cast of the show, so there's five central characters, and they all play into the fantasy worlds, but it's pretty wacky and super fun. Definitely very different from Stupid Hype and Hart of Dixie but also a really fun, welcome change."
Hart of Dixie returns to The CW on October 7 2013 at 8 p.m. L.A. Rangers will hit CW Seed this fall.
