NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- There's nothing like playing the under dog onstage, let alone a bad guy the audience can't help but like.
It's a dream role for Bryce Pinkham, the star of the new Broadway musical comedy "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder."
Pinkham plays a distant heir to a great fortune a royal title, and then begins to murder all the relatives that stand between him and his inheritance.
"I am having a good time," Pinkham told CBS 2's Dana Tyler in an in-studio interview. "I've got to tell you, I've never done any of it in the real world, but serial killing on Brodway's fun."
Pinkham said he takes pride in originating a role on Broadway, although he was quick to note that other actors helped bring the show to Broadway. "A Gentleman's Guide" spent more than a decade in development.
"But I'm the lucky one who gets to carry the torch at this moment, and it is very special to originate something because it's yours and you get to put your mark on it and feel like you own it every night," Pinkham said.
