Nicolas Gregory isn’t a contractor. He’s not a handyman. He actually has screen credits but they don’t include HGTV or TLC’s Trading Places. In other words, he’s not a professional -- but that hasn’t stopped him from building a house out of nothing but a hole in the ground in the beachy town of Amagansett, NY. After two long years and a couple big roadblocks, he’s finally living in the home of his dreams.
Gregory’s a long-time actor, director, and writer who’s partly responsible for sticking the Gorton’s Seafood jingle (“Trust the Gorton’s fisherman.”) in your head. For an extended tenure he donned the yellow jacket and matching hat and sold us fish fillets. But his passion extends far beyond acting (and fishsticks, even though those are delicious). Though he can claim roles on shows like All My Children and Sex and the City, there’s a part of him that would rather construct scenery than chew it.
