I have a Storm Trooper costume in my garage, we could do this right now. JJ: What’s the most romantic thing, you’ve ever done? It’s coming home for me, every time I come home, we all gotta meet up at L Bar. And I had, I probably had a couple drinks in me, and was like, I should do one of those. And it was like, I guess it was our three year anniversary or something, so we went on like three different special spots around the city. But I think bringing that confidence from my previous experience on a set has helped me out a lot.
JJ: Is the whole season that arc of you being held hostage? We actually don’t know how long we’re going to be held captive.
The first season will probably play out over the course of that particular hostage crisis.
It’s actually the closest bar to my house and so my friend’s and I have kind of, we’ve kind of owned it as our little haunt. JL: It was Valentine’s day, we were just chillin’ and it was actually the first night I had ever seen Harlem Shake. I once took an ex-girlfriend on a tour around New York City, of all the places that meant something to us in the city, throughout the course of our relationship.
It’s an awesome little dive that’s down the street. And they had been there for ) JJ: How did that Harlem Shake video come about? It was no hot air balloon ride, or proposal, or anything.
So yeah, we have a water filter and we can get ice, it’s really fun.
And so finally, after not being able to get into our freezer for like two years, we replaced it.
Makes me feel old, and it’s amusing at the same time.
JJ: What did you learn being on a long-standing series that you have brought to this series? Just having that experience coming from , sometimes it’s harder going onto a show when you’re not one of the major roles.
We’re being held as leverage, you could say, for our kidnapper’s agenda.
James Lafferty: I play a high school teacher who gets taken hostage, abducted with a class full of my students – all the children of the most popular people in the country.
It’s like if you were able to rewind through your high school years, you’d see something that surprises you, you’d be like, “Oh my god, that’s gross,” or “that’s awesome.” It’s pretty fun. I remember a distinct difference between before we were on Netflix and when we got on Netflix. People were just cramming it, and so now, yeah, it’s much different. JJ: What do you think your character Nathan would be up to if you were to reconvene? Probably embarking on some new career choice, because he can never seem to stay put in one thing for more than a couple years.
