PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Actor Patrick Dempsey wanted to do something “completely different” with his new film “Flypaper,” so he signed on as one of its producers.

While promoting the movie at the Sundance Film Festival this week, The “Grey’s Anatomy” actor described the experience as sometimes “painful,” where there were days he “didn’t want to show up.” In the end he believes pushing himself outside his comfort zone was a good thing.
