#117 – Tom Cavanagh

The Life of Dad Show - Episode 117 - Tom Cavanagh

Tommy Riles and Art Eddy welcome actor, Tom Cavanagh.

When you think of Tom Cavanagh you might immediately reflect on his sitcom “Ed”. That series showcased Tom’s comedic side and eventually produced the hilarious podcast, “Mike and Tom Eat Snacks” with his “Ed” co-star Michael Ian Black which is on the Nerdist network.

Besides being in many fantastic films and TV shows, Tom is now featured in the new CW hit series “The Flash”. Cavanagh plays the role of Harrison Wells. He is the mind and money behind Central City’s S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator, who becomes a pariah after the lab explodes. He serves as a mentor to Barry Allen (The Flash) after he exhibits his powers, but Dr. Wells is keeping secrets from Barry and the plans he has for him.

Of course, here at Life of Dad, we like to get each dad’s take on fatherhood. Tom has some sincere and loving thoughts on his role as a dad. He also shows us that he still looks to his dad for advice from time to time. To me that is a sign of a great parent. He is always looking to learn how to be a better dad.

Besides brilliantly portraying Dr. Wells, Tom has been finishing up some films, “400 Days” and “The Games Maker”. Tom and I discuss “The Flash”, his current projects, fatherhood, and his experience at Comic Con.
