Thanks to the reader who tipped us off to this fascinating profile of QVC host Rick Domeier, whose credentials apparently range from doing Shakespeare to playing “Teen Wolf” in a low-rent horror movie.
And you only thought Rick knew how to trade jibes with Joan Rivers!
The story ran in Broadway World, here is the link: http://broadwayworld.com/article/BWW_Interviews_Actor_and_QVC_Host_Rick_Domeier_20110409
Domeier, who has been promoting his book “Can I Have A Do-Over?,” had an acting career and some meaty roles before landing in West Chester, Pa. He played Hal Carter in “Picnic” and was in the play “Sexual Perversity in Chicago.”
He has a self-deprecating sense of humor about his pre-QVC acting career, describing the time he missed his cue while appearing in the soap opera “The Days of Our Lives” and his experience playing the teen wolf in Sam Raimi’s Movie “Teen Wolf.” The FX, special effects and makeup, left a lot to be desired in that one. We’ll leave it at that.
The story also talks about Domeier making references to F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tennessee Williams and Shakespeare when he’s hawking product on QVC. We’ve been watching QVC for more than a decade, and we’ve never heard of those types of allusions come from Rick’s lips. But maybe we were just too engrossed by the jewelry he was selling at the time.
The profile was written by a guy, but the story was written from the eye of a straight gal.
Here are some of the descriptions of Rick:
After watching the man in action, one quickly realizes that he’s quite intelligent, well-read and still has a penchant for the performing arts. Oh yes, he’s very good-looking, too. His blind hair sets off his blue eyes and the whitest of white teeth.
And that physique of his is amply displayed when he demonstrates workout equipment so that people on various message board post comments that would normally be reserved for the likes of Brad Pitt or Jake Gyllenhall.
We bet Rick blushed at that!
It also says that he was a party boy in college. What a surprise!
Anyway, the story is a good read and tells us more about Domeier than we’ve ever known.
The profile is so well done, we wish we’d written it.
