Psych co stars dating online dating clever questions
Starting as a companion piece to Monk in 2006, the series (which also stars Maggie Lawson, Corbin Bernsen, Timothy Omundson and Kirsten Nelson) is not only a standalone success, it has become a launchpad for the network’s other original series.
“We were this tiny show on a network that was finding its footing,” Roday says. We tagged ourselves as underdogs and thought the only way we’d be able to push this thing uphill was to do it all together.
He is well known for his role of Shawn Spencer, a fake psychic and detective known for his uncannily accurate photographic memory.
James is not only an actor but also a director and screenwriter.
James Roday was born on April 4, 1976, in San Antonio, Texas.
Roday obtained a bachelors degree in Fine Arts and Drama from New York University, Tisch School of the Arts in 1997.
During that time he used to perform in a band, Dogberry.
“It’s a great show with a unique voice and a fantastic, specific sense of comedy,” weighs in Jeff Wachtel, co-prexy of USA and Universal Cable Prods. “It taps into a wonderful theme that will always be timely, the Peter Pan factor of a young man who won’t grow up.” “At its heart, it’s about two best friends who are putting one over on the adults,” adds USA co-prexy Chris Mc Cumber. Between all of the characters and relationships, everything has grown in such an authentic way.” Franks cites his father (a retired LAPD officer) as well as ’80s-era detective shows like Moonlighting and Simon & Simon as the inspiration for Psych.
“That’s why it is still the youngest-skewing — and getting younger — show on USA.” “I think it comes down to the banter with Shawn and Gus,” says Lawson, who plays Shawn’s girlfriend, Juliet. “I thought it would be fun to apply my comic sensibility to a cop show,” says Franks, who was best known for co-writing Adam Sandler’s Big Daddy (1999) when he was pitching the concept.
That sense of camaraderie extended into and beyond the pilot, as cast and crew adopted a Little Show That Could mentality. Buoyed by the buddy genre that has long driven some of the most popular movies and TV shows, USA Network’s Psych has thrived on the chemistry of Roday and Hill, along with the creative freedom initiated by creator-showrunner Steve Franks.
