Bryce Pinkham has the killer instinct again.
After an extended break to star with Elisabeth Moss and Jason Biggs in “The Heidi Chronicles” and to take a personal vacation, he’s back in the 2014 Best Musical Tony winner “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder.”
Turns out homicide on Broadway is like riding a bike. “My muscles knew where to go before I remembered,” he says.
Pinkham earned a Tony nod as Monty Navarro, who kills his way to power in a well-to-do family. “I Am My Own Wife” Tony winner Jefferson Mays plays all of Monty’s victims.
Catherine Walker and Scarlett Strallen now portray the two women in scheming Monty’s life.
“I feel like I’m in previews again,” Pinkham adds. “It’s a challenge and fun.”

What wasn’t fun for Pinkham was having the “Gentleman’s Guide” team getting whooped last week in a Broadway Show League softball playoff game.
“It was a crushing defeat at the hands of ‘Phantom of the Opera,’ ” moans Pinkham, who plays shortstop. “A season-ending game for us.
“We had a really good team this year,” he adds. Softball is “such a good morale booster. It’s become a spectacle in Central Park. You could say we didn’t keep our hands at the level of our eyes.”
Or, you could say that now the man who plays murderous Monty knows what it’s like to get killed.
