The other day I had the distinct pleasure of talking with one of the stars of USA’s hit show Psych, James Roday. I was able to ask him a couple questions to help us gear up for the Psych season premiere on Wednesday.

How’s it going?

James Roday (JR): What’s up, how’re you doing man?

I’m pretty good. I was hoping you would tell us a little about Extinction, it’s opening next month in Manhattan right?

JR: Dude that’s true, that’s awesome. Thank you for mentioning that. And it is sort of, it does come back to Psych actually. It’s a play that I did in Los Angeles opposite Michael Weston who played Adam Hornstock, Esq., in Cloudy Chance of Murder. And Amanda Detmer who played Ciaobella Masterson in Black and Time, Crime of Fashion.

And the play is moving off Broadway to the Cherry Lane Theater starting next month and Dule Hill, my generous co-star has also joined the team as a producer. So there’s Psych all over this thing and it opens on February 17 and it’s a limited engagement, it’ll run through the middle of March and possibly extend to the end of March if people are actually coming to see the play. But thank you so much for mentioning that.

That’s Awesome! So James, in the fall finale there was a scene with Juliet and Gus in the Psych office where she asks Gus how he thought Abigail and Shawn’s relationship was going and Gus responded with “he didn’t know”. If someone, besides Juliette obviously, were to ask Shawn the same question, how do you think he would answer?

JR: Well since it’s still pretty new to Shawn I think he would probably say that it’s… it’s going okay. I think the fallacy there would be that he would say that it was going okay if she had just broken up with him as well… (at this point James got a little fumbly, hmm… wonder why that is) because he’s… I don’t think he would realize that that… that that means that things are rocky. So you know… I think… you know… it’s a pretty semi-fluid kind of relationship that he’s just sort of going along with and… and… we’ll see… I mean I think he’s… he’s one of those guys that might have to have an anvil dropped on his head to be like (adopts a confused tone) “What, we’re done, really? I thought we were doing great.” So we’ll see. We’ll see and I say that as if I don’t know even though I do know. But I’ll just say that we’ll see.

The fourth season continues with guest stars John Cena, Robert Patrick, and Rachel Leigh Cook returns as Shawn’s girlfriend. Other guest stars in the second half of season 4 include: Judd Nelson, Chris Sarandon, Miguel Ferrer, Bruce Davison, Ally Sheedy and more.
