As if James Wolk and his wife, Elizabeth, are not Crazy Ones already with their son Charlie, almost 2, they are expecting their second child together. The star announced the happy news by posting a silhouette photo of the three of them and wrote, “Adding on.”

During the day, he will be starring in Tell Me a Story, at night he will be telling his kids a story.

No word when he and his wife of 3 years will be welcoming the new addition, but she looks way into her second trimester.

James Wolk and his wife, Elizabeth Jae Byrd, welcomed their first child together a boy named Charlie. The Zoo actor did not say when he was born, but the newborn is definitely a beautiful bouncing baby boy. And you can already tell that even though they have only known each other for just a few hours, they are already so much in love! Hopefully their dog Flea will feel the same way.

James Wolk’s CBS show Zoo was recently renewed for a third season, but yet the actor was seen working as a shoe salesman. Has he hit hard times? Nope, he was just helping out at his family’s new store Sundance Shoes in Birmingham, Michigan.
I don’t know about, but I would let him measure my feet because there is nothing sexier than a man putting on a woman’s shoe!


Was working with a bear too much for James Wolk to bear on Zoo?

James Wolk has worked with real live lions and tigers on CBS’s Zoo and tonight at 9p he works with with his hardest animal yet.
When I recently asked him at the CBS Studios Summer Press Day which animal he was scared to work with most, without hesitation he told me, “The bear, an 800 pound brown Kodiak bear.“ He explained, “We were about three inches away from a brown 800 pound Kodiak bear. So even with precautions, even with the trainers and the safety and all of that, it is still a bear. You still have that feeling of your heart beating and your palms sweating and rightfully so.” If you are that close to bear, you can smell it. He described the odor as, “They have a very particular smell. It is a smell that I have never smelled before because I have never been that close to a bear before. But it is a very specific.”
So if you are going to work that closely with live animals, what warning is given to the actors by the trainers? He revealed that they each had their different mandates, “For bears, it was don’t look them in the eye. For horses, it is like get close to them, get comfortable with them, so that they are comfortable with you.” Then he added, “I feel fortunate because I wouldn’t be that close to this animals in real life if it wasn’t for the show.”
Tune in tonight to watch him and the other actors work with a real live bear and see if you can notice the terror in their eyes.


Six things you want to know about CBS’s Zoo!

Last week Zoo held people captive, like an animal at a zoo; and tonight at 9p on CBS it will do the same. People are intrigued by the show’s notion that one day the animals will take back what is rightfully theirs.
Now you know the premise of this summer thriller, what are things you don’t know about the show that will make watching it so much more interesting. A few weeks ago cast members James Wolk, Nonso Anozie and Nora Arnezeder plus Executive Producers Cathy Konrad, Jeff Pinker, Scott Rosenberg and the author James Patterson shared some behind the scenes secrets from the show at the CBS Studios Summer Press Day.

Did they always intend on turning James Patterson’s words into a television show?
Cathy Konrad said, “We were concocting it initially as a feature film and thinking about it on kind of a different level which was actually scale it kind of make a more kind of contained thriller, like a Cloverfield or a District 9.” Then she added, “But as we kind of got under the scenes and read between the lines of the book and we kept kind of challenging the material in our creative meetings, it became clear that there was such a bigger world to explore with this and that kind of teching it down wouldn’t really do it justice.”

Did they use real animals or are they computer generated?
James Wolk told us, “All the animals that we’ve had down on set, and it’s been tons of animals, because it should also be said there hasn’t been a ton of CGI. There’s been a lot of real animals on set.” Then he explained, “They all come with trainers. They’re all incredibly well-trained as far as wild animals go. They can’t talk, but they’re well-trained animals and all the proper precautions are taken.”

But are there problems with working with animals as compared to humans?
Nora Arnezeder revealed, “Sometimes they fall asleep in the middle of the scene and we really need them, so we have to wait 30 minutes for them to wake up.”

What type of animals will we see on the show?
According to Wolk we will see lions, bears, wolves and rats. Remember they all are real and they are not made on the computer.

Where will Zoo be traveling to?
James Pinker says, “This show travels to Tokyo and to Rio and to Mobile, Alabama and Antarctica and Paris. It truly is a global thriller and the story spans the globe and their characters travel around the world.”

And this is this most shocking reveal?
Even though the show will be spanning the world, it is filmed entirely in New Orleans. So when you watch Zoo, be prepared to be amazed that Wolk, Arnezeder and Anozie are on US soil and not in Africa like the show says they are. I still can’t believe how amazingly The Big Easy easily substitutes for the rest of the world.
