Train’s Pat Monahan Has a New Son, a New Album and a New Acting Career
2012 should be quite a year for train's Pat Monahan, who is juggling the completion of the follow-up to the album "Save Me San Fransisco', with caring for a month -old baby baby and trying his hand... at acting. Monahan tells Rolling Stone the single from the new album should be ready by the new year. "It's very close. The guys are recording it in Los Angeles right now. We did pre-production last week, and I am not going to Los Angeles because I just had a little boy. He's one month old. So I'm staying put in Seattle and San Francisco, and those guys are going to work in L.A. and then we're kind of going to be done. We have a single being released called "Drive By" and we'll play the Orange Bowl on the 4th of January, so I think "Drive By" will come out on the 5th or 6th.
Look for Pat in an upcoming episode of Hawaii Five-o andplaying himself in the TBS series "The Wedding band". " I've lived in L.A. a few times, and one of the times I was living there I was pursuing acting as a profession. I didn't want to just be in shows but I wanted to pursue actually being good at it. So I took classes in Los Angeles for a year and learned a lot. I have a good friend who is an actor. His name is Mark Blucas. He and I are from the same hometown in Pennsylvania. Someday I'll write a movie or something and I'll play the lead in it. I feel like that's about the only way I would get a serious acting part.
