BOY CRUSH: BEAU MIRCHOFF
Oct 27, 2017
We have a new crush in town and its obviously on Beau Mirchoff! Mirchoff is best known for his role as Matty McKibben on the hit and critically-acclaimed series Awkward. Mirchoff can currently be seen in the Crackle original movie Party Boat alongside Brett Davern, Katie Leclerc, and Jay Mohr just to name a few. The story follows Max (Davern) as he throws a wild 25th birthday party for his best friend Kiley. Mirchoff will showcase his comedic chops as Jonathan, the party’s hilarious bartender who embarks on a mission to win the heart of Kiley’s divorced sister. The film is streaming now.
We got to chat with Beau and found out about his love for traveling as well. He has taken exciting trips to Japan, Europe, and destinations around the globe. In his next quest for adventure, he will be leaving Los Angeles behind and taking a roadtrip across the United States in a van with very few of his possessions.
We obviously had to sit down and ask Beau some of our favorite questions. Check out our one-on-one!
What gets you up in the morning?
The sun. Also, my dog jumping on me. I really need some sleep.
- Your biggest virtue?
Is being genuine a virtue? If so, I’ll go with that.
- Your biggest vice?
- Do you have a party trick?
I have a magic trick involving cards that I think is awesome. Though when I show it to people at parties, they call me a nerd.
- How would you describe your style?
Chad Michael Murray in a Cinderella Story.
- What would constitute a perfect day for you?
Wake up on the beach, get in the water, eat some great food that my personal chef, Mario Batali, cooked up for me, go on a hike, then upon my return the Stones are throwing a secret show on my beach (yes, the mayor gave me the beach now), then I fall in love with Emily Blunt and we write a movie together that gets green-lit, staring us.
- What would your very last meal entail?
- Three people—dead or alive, real or fictional—that you’d like to invite to dinner?
James Joyce, Genghis Khan, Martin Luther King Jr.
- Turn ons?
Passion, honesty, intelligence, humor. Did I mention I want to marry Emily Blunt?
- Turn offs?
- Tell us a secret.
I am launching a charitable website! Stay tuned for more information. Yes, I am aware that I used this question to plug something I am doing; however, it’s for charity, so pipe down.
- Your favorite quote?
“His throat ached with a desire to cry aloud, the cry of a hawk or eagle on high, to cry piercingly of his deliverance to the winds. This was the call of life to his soul not the dull gross voice of the world of duties and despair, not the inhuman voice that had called him to the pale service of the altar. An instant of wild flight had delivered him and the cry of triumph which his lips withheld cleft his brain.” – A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. This book and this quote is partly responsible for me living in a van at the moment.
- An embarrassing moment?
I invited a friend of mine out. Once I got to the bar and after about 20 minutes of hanging (and still no sign of my other friend) I commented on how crazy it was we ran into each other. Her face displayed a look of confusion, and she said, “why is it crazy? You invited me here.” Turns out I have TWO friends with the same name.
- Your proudest moment?
Through a play I produced and acted in, I was able to raise money for a group home in Philadelphia.
- Could you tell us more about some of the projects you are working on?
Check out my social media for updates on my new charitable project. Also, a couple things in the acting realm coming down the pike of which I can’t discus yet!
