Interviews Oban Videos

Jack has teamed up with Oban for their Single Malt Whisky campaign. Check out a short interview below, and some videos of Jack for the campaign on the Oban Facebook page.


FORBES: What got you into whisky?
‘I’ve always been a fan of whisky – particularly single malt Scotch. Growing up, my Grandfather enjoyed the occasional Scotch, and when I was finally old enough, I would have one with him around the holidays. Since then, I’ve never looked back. I definitely have an appreciation for the quality, depth of flavor and character in Scotch, so it is my spirit of choice.’

How do you plan to celebrate International Scotch Day?
‘I plan to celebrate International Scotch Day with a few friends over a glass of Oban! Whenever I have folks over, I enjoy serving drinks and mixing cocktails. I’d say that I definitely know my way around the bar after spending a few years bartending in New York. Growing up in a big Italian family taught me to appreciate the holidays as a time to catch up with family and friends. So, I’ll be doing just that, hosting some friends and catching up over a bottle of Scotch.’

Tell me about your favorite whisky, way of drinking, and overall experience.
‘That’s an easy one. In all seriousness, my favorite whisky is Oban. I do enjoy some blended whiskies and bourbon, but if we are talking about single malts, I particularly love Oban 14-Year-Old since it has this rich sweetness with a smoky, dryness and an incredibly smooth finish. The Oban 18-Year-Old is great too. I enjoy it neat but love that there are so many ways to enjoy whisky. It doesn’t need to be just neat or on the rocks while you are sitting at home. There are some cool craft cocktails made with single malts – whisky definitely has become more social, and I love that.’

Tell me about the “It’s Pronounced OH-bin” campaign, any fun facts or mishaps?
‘The “It’s Pronounced OH-bin” campaign has been awesome – I was so excited to partner with Oban for this, especially since I have been a fan of the brand for so many years. The campaign was inspired by the common mispronunciation of the brand’s name and that is something that I easily relate to. For some reason, my last name always seems to confuse people – and still does. So, when I was approached about the campaign, I laughed and was really excited to do this. The videos are meant to be playful and poke fun at some of the insanely complicated names of single malts that you see in the store. At the end of it all, it is really just about enjoying incredibly, good whisky. I also give people a fun “education” on the side.’

What are some great memories or learning experience working alongside your castmates, like Viola Davis?
I’m very fortunate to be working with a group of outstanding actors. From day one I’ve been motivated and challenged by their talent and professionalism. I truly learn something new each and every day on set.

What’s next for you?
Outside of the show, I’ve been working on a big music project with my best friend Tim Wu (aka Elephante). We’ve been working hard on making it something unique and can’t wait to share it with everyone.
