The Hottie Stop interviews Katrina Bowden, star of 30 Rock and Hard Sell!

06.13.2016by: Eric Walkuski

For seven years, Katrina Bowden brought some hilarious hotness to 30 Rock. As airheaded receptionist Cerie, Bowden brought a delectable mix of stunning beauty and spot-on comedic timing to the excellent NBC sitcom, and I've always said that there's nothing better than a sexy woman who can make you laugh. And while that role is still perhaps her most well-known, Bowden has been killing it in a variety of feature films ever since; I mean, how eccentric is this list: TUCKER & DALE VS EVIL, AMERICAN REUNION, PIRANHA 3DD, NURSE 3D, I KILLED MY BFF? Right now she can be seen in HARD SELL, a charming coming-of-age comedy in which she plays Bo, a runaway who gets involved with a young man's scheme to make money for his dying dog. (Think a more family friendly RISKY BUSINESS.)

Katrina an I spoke about her daring new role, as well as her time spent on 30 Rock, her impressively disparate filmography, ignoring internet trolls and being called The Sexiest Woman Alive!

Tell me about the role you play in Hard Sell; it's a bit of a sweet but sexy romantic comedy.

It's a little bit of a coming of age movie. It's really funny and entirely relatable. It's about a boy who has a very unstable mothers so he's taking care of the house on his own, and he meets this interesting, troubled runaway and he uses her to make himself a little bit of money. I play the troubled runaway, she's a very interesting character. She comes from a wealthy background but she comes from a very troubled past, so she kind of struggles with who she is and what she wants to be.

In what ways are you similar to Bo?

I don't know if I really am that similar. I think what attracted me to the role is that she's very different from me. She's the kind of girl who's not afraid to say anything, she kind of just goes with the flow. That's not really how I am, but I really liked that about the character. At the end of the day she's a normal girl who wants to find out who she is and figure shit out. [Laughs]

Are you a fan of this kind of movie? What are some of your personal favorites?

Yeah, I'm a huge fan of this type of film. It reminds me of some of the movies I used to love in the 80s and 90s. I loved watching all of those movies, like Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

When you were watching those movies growing up, did you ever think you'd actually get to star in one?

No, I didn't really think that. I always loved being in front of a camera, I always loved performing when I was growing up. I didn't really think about being an actress until I was in my teenage years. I think those kinds of movies, as a person who loved performing in front of the camera, really did inspire me. The thought that I'm in one of those movies that I loved watching is really, really cool.

You've been in some pretty crazy movies over the years, like Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil, Piranha 3DD, Nurse 3D; what attracts you to these wild flicks?

I kind of like to do different things. For so long I was on 30 Rock and I played a character that I loved to play and for a long time I got a lot of offers to play the same part, the same type of character. I wanted to do different things, things that weren't really expected of me, so that's how I've been treating my career so far. I really love taking on a project that might be a little shocking or a little bit different.

Tucker & Dale is so great, did you guys ever talk about doing a sequel to that?

There is talks about it, I don't know how serious the talks are. About a year ago they were talking about doing another but I don't know where that stands. I also don't know if I would be in the sequel, I mean I would love to be, but if they do a sequel they might just have Tucker and Dale and a whole different storyline.

I was looking up 30 Rock before and thought I was seeing things, but it apparently premiered in 2006! Is it crazy that it came out 10 years ago?

It is crazy. I guess I hadn't really thought about it until you just said it. I was 17 when I started on that show, I was just a child. It's definitely a huge part of my life, and I learned everything that I now know from that show. It's really cool to be a part of something that is a cultural phenomenon.

What kind of working environment did you have on that show?

Not only was it great to be a part of such a funny show that had such great writing, it was also the best cast ever. We all became family. They're all such hysterical, nice people, I looked forward to every day on set.

Do you stay in touch with your co-stars?

I do. Not everyone as much as I'd like to, but I'm really good friends with Jack McBrayer and Keith Powell and Judah, who I see all the time. I see a lot of the writers now in L.A. We will forever be a little family.

Do you ever google yourself?

I try not to. If there's a picture of myself that I want or something, then I will, but I usually don't like to. [Laughs]

Have you read crazy things about yourself online?

When I first started acting I would google myself and see what people were saying about it, and for all the things that people say that are really nice there's that one comment that's really nasty, and no matter how many nice things you read you just focus on that one mean comment. It's human nature. I don't know, I just don't think it's worth it. People are mean online, they just say whatever they want, and it's not worth it to get wrapped up in that.

You were named Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire a few years ago; what was that like?

It was so cool. Feels like a long time ago now. [Laughs] I didn't expect that, it was really cool, it made me very happy.

Is there a role that you haven't had a chance to play yet that you really want to tackle?

There are two types of roles I haven't done that I would love to do. I would love to be in an action movie; I love physical activity and I would love to take on a physically challenging role. I'm a big fan of sci-fi and so I'd like to be in a sci-fi movie.

And I would like to see that! Thanks so much for our time, Katrina.

Thanks very much!
