But before a well-deserved break after a consistently hilarious season, the series stars Utkarsh Ambudkar is revealing a “super hilarious” episode that sees his character Jay haunted by the house ghost Victoria Hetty (Rebecca Wisocky). In an exclusive with PopCulture.com before the episode airs Thursday night at 9 p.m. ET and Stream exclusively on Paramount +, Ambudkar revealed that he was extremely excited for the opportunity to interact with his co-star.
Ambudkar told PopCulture: “I’m really excited for the opportunity to do something weird, a little weird.” But like Rebecca – Rebecca has created a dynamic, different, very clear character. clear with Hetty. She has a very solid voice. Right? Most of the hard work, she does. All those great roles you have to have really strong source material. And kudos to Rebecca for making that happen for me. “
Teasing how the audience can expect”romance and act and talk and listen and look“Ambudkar shared that the show’s 10th episode will see his character Jay take on a home improvement project and lead to some unfortunate results.” He was trying to change a light bulb and things didn’t go well for him and Hetty just happened to stand behind him while he was electrocuted,” he said of his character, who is not is a handyman at home.” Next thing you know, Hetty jumped into Jay’s body and now they’re both taking up the same space, that would be fine if Jay and Sam hadn’t gone to great lengths to secure the account of an attempted wedding. trying to take place in the mansion and they’re trying to get this party ready and really impress this wedding planner, which is like super hard to do when you have a 200 year old ghost, namely Hetty, traveling in your body. “
Add how events boil down to “a bit of a hindrance“For the couple, Ambudkar says it’s a recipe for ‘really hilarious situations’ throughout the episode.” We had a lot of fun filming that, this episode,” he said. studying Wisocky’s Hetty, who is a very different character and fits a unique vibrancy. “Hetty’s got this hoot, right? Hetty has this ‘hoo, hoo.’ And once you get the hang of that, like ‘hoo, hoo’ – once you hear the music in her voice, the rest becomes easy. You have to pretend you’ve been wearing a corset for 250 years. That’s also the key to playing Hetty. But that’s pretty much it. Stand up straight and ‘Ooh,’ and do a hoot, and you’re good to go. “
One of the scenes that fans will most enjoy is previewed in this week’s teaser, which shows Hetty hugging food more than two centuries later through Jay’s body. It was a moment for Ambudkar that he said was fun but came with some minor consequences. “Dude, I ate a lot of candy that day and it was amazing. I come home with a bag full of candy“, he say.” I’m throwing Sour Patch Kids. I’ve got Twizzlers. Oh, it was a magical day. I have a little sweetness. And then who doesn’t like a Cheo. So I was good. I went home. I’m sick. I won’t lie. A bit annoying but totally worth it. “
With the episode going to be an equally hilarious one for fans on Thursday night, Ambudkar said the whole experience of Jay getting Woodstone’s immersive treatment would have made him a little more cautious. in home improvement projects. “I think he would be a lot more vigilant when changing the lightbulbs in the house. You know, man, this is a guy he loves his wife very much. He also has to wear a bathing suit in the shower because he is not sure if there are ghosts in there he has to make many different kinds of breakfast food so that people he cannot see can smell the said food he has to be careful – basically every time.”
He went on to share how “having possession from one of the ghosts would put him on heightened alert” following the events with Hetty. “Lucky for [Jay] and luckily for viewers he loves Sam so much and he just wants to be with his wife,” he added. So this guy is just, he’s just there, he’s a ride or die. He was like, ‘You see ghosts? Cool.’ Like, ‘We have to bury a Viking. Cool.’ Like, whatever it is baby, we’ll get through it. That’s Jay’s catchphrase — it’s basically what it sounds like. We will pass. “
