New York has a story about the Happy Endings cast that is so frustrating. Casts will always say they’re friends but these guys are the real deal. Since I doubt you or I will ever be cast as a series regular, how can we get them to be our friends? Just read the description of when they first hung out:
The group began bonding the night of the very first table read, when they went for drinks at the Chateau Marmont and ended up at Cuthbert’s house, where it became clear that this group of “friends” was actually going to be friends. “I hope he forgives me for saying this, but, I mean, Zach wore a fedora the first night we hung out, and it was just over,” Wilson says, laughing. “Adam and I were like, ‘Take the fedora off or we can’t move forward.’ It’s just like that—a questionable amount of openness.” Soon, the cast was going to Bikram yoga and getting margaritas after filming and encouraging Cuthbert to get a hot tub they could all hang out in…
Hopefully, the tub is supes huge and can fit all the people reading this post right now and me. It gets worse, and by that I mean better. The group gets in crazy shenanigans together, like the time Adam Pally, Damon Wayans Jr., and Zachary Knighton went to the Playboy Mansion:
“Those parties are just kind of crazy, you know what I mean?” says Pally. “Like, obviously, they’re exactly what you think of. Chris Evans was there, and he recognized Zach, and he was like, ‘Dude I love you, you’re a great actor, but that show you’re on is bullshit.’ I don’t even think he was talking about Happy Endings, I think he was talking about FlashForward, but I was a little under the influence, and so I got up in Chris Evans’s face like an idiot—because he would have destroyed me, he would have ripped my arms off—and I was like, ‘Whoa, not cool, Captain America.’ And then Damon backed me up, and I was like, ‘We’re going to kick the shit out of you, Chris Evans.’ And then security broke us up. So there you go.”
What, did our invite get lost in the mail? Seriously, so much of what makes the show great, and it’s really great, is the dynamic and closeness of the cast and how much the viewer wants to be one of the gang. I guess we’ll have to go ghost protes to try to infiltrate the group.
