This Comic Con I had a chance to sit down with the cast of PSYCH, to talk to them about something very important. The muc talked about and anticpated musical episode. Where is it?
The cast of PSYCH was able to talk to 4000 of their closest friends this afternoon at Comic-Con about their upcoming season. This show returns to Comic-Con for the fourth year in a row and I was able to talk fan favorites James Roday (Shawn Spencer), Dulé Hill (Burton “Gus” Guster), Maggie Lawson (Juliet O’Hara), and Timothy Omundson (Carlton Lassiter) about the musical surprises the show has to offer this season.
At the panel the cast announced the much talked about and hotly anticipated musical episode is going to start filming in October. This special two-hour episode will feature original songs and the cast members singing all their own songs. As James Roday describes, the pressure is on to get this episode right.
“It’s going to be a challenge. The songs are original and we’ve been talking about doing it for a long time and I think the expectations are pretty high. First and foremost we just want to make sure we deliver. “
“It will be fun. After 100 episodes to change it up and do something as different as that, I’m excited for it.” Says Dulé Hill. “For all of us as a cast to have to sing tunes to each other, it’s like Psych-outs coming to the Psych show. Instead of being the credits it will be the whole show.”
With musicals usually comes a dance number or two and since Detective Lassiter has already tried tap dancing in one episode, along with Dulé Hill, Timothy Omundson is eager to show off his (specific) dancing talents.
“If it was written before 1950 I cannot dance to it. I have no moves whatsoever. Swing, waltz or polka and I would tear it apart,” Omundson claims. Tap dancing was a skill that he had to learn to him in the process of the filming this show.
“I did tap; I have always wanted to take tap lessons my entire life and never did. At the pilot I asked Dulé to give me tap lessons and he did not,” He recalls with a laugh. “I tapped a little bit – like the simplest stuff and its like, you’re tapping next to Dulé Hill who is world class so you feel like a bit of an ass. “
This zany show promises to offer a very entertaining fourth season when it returns to the USA network later this year. For more information on PSYCH go to www.USANetwork.com
