Eddie McClintock’s character on the Syfy show “Warehouse 13″ mirrors his real life in at least one aspect. Both are recovering alcoholics.
“I have 12 years of sobriety,” McClintock said Saturday at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle. It was the first time he revealed his alcoholism publicly, he said during a fan panel.
When he gave up drinking he thought, “Oh my God, the party’s over. But it’s just as fun. I can wake up without a headache and work and not apologize.”
McClintock also has been on “Sex and the City,” “Friends,” “Just Shoot Me,” “Desperate Housewives” and “Bones.” Fans had plenty of questions. McClintock left the stage often to hug them.
He called actress Kate McGrew, who plays his mother on “Warehouse,” American royalty. “My mom’s a Starfleet captain. That’s awesome. I’m begging them to have Bruce Campbell be my dad.”
And how does the star veg out after a long day on the set? He watches “Storage Wars.”
