James Wolk stars as the ambitious son of a former president and the current secretary of state, played by Sigourney Weaver, on USA's Political Animals. James first caught our eye on the critically acclaimed but short-lived series Lone Star, and he brings a heavy dose of conflict to his latest character, the idealistic but control-hungry Douglas Hammond. We caught up with the actor recently in Beverly Hills to find out what's ahead on the drama. James also talked about his character's complicated relationship with his fiancée and how being an actor can introduce its own challenges to maintaining a romantic life. Watch our interview, and see the latest episode of Political Animals this Sunday at 10/9 Central.
