  • - Hey I'm Penn Badgley, I'm here at Buzzfeed

  • and I am here to answer your burning questions.

  • (suspenseful music)

  • So if you haven't seen You season two, don't!

  • No, but there's spoilers here so you're

  • just gonna wanna watch this later, or spoil it for yourself

  • if you don't have discipline of any kind.

  • All right, this one oof!

  • So hot!

  • What was it like filming the scene

  • where Joe cleans up Jasper's body after the killing?

  • Cleans up?

  • Not sure about that language.

  • (laughs)

  • Was it the most gruesome scene,

  • 'cause he puts him in a meat grinder by the way,

  • was it the most gruesome scene for you to film?

  • Yes.

  • Yeah, mmm no actually.

  • So here's a spoiler, when Delilah is dead

  • on the floor of the cage with her throat slashed,

  • the amount of fake blood that was required

  • to make that look real was more gruesome.

  • Next question.

  • What was the original audition process like?

  • Didn't audition.

  • No I'm kidding, well I met Greg and Sarah.

  • They apparently very much wanted me for it,

  • and it was really, ultimately my conversations with them

  • that made me overcome my pesky moral conflict

  • over playing such a guy.

  • But you had another part to the question.

  • How did you hear about the project?

  • Mm my agent, nothing mysterious there.

  • One of the biggest episodes in season two

  • was definitely when Joe and Forty trip on LSD, I agree.

  • Any fun memories from filming those episodes?

  • Yeah that was actually the most fun for me I think,

  • because it was the most physical, the most strange

  • and maniacal, yeah jumping out of the window was fun.

  • We actually had to do more stunts than you see really,

  • so yeah it's always fun to do physical stuff.

  • Trying to act as though I am, you know

  • weeping and tripping at the same time, that's interesting.

  • That's fun, it's also exhausting.

  • Since the show is heavily based on voice-over,

  • what's it like filming?

  • Are there long pauses to accommodate the voiceover,

  • yes there are, or is there dialogue that is eventually cut?

  • No there's no dialogue so, this is something

  • that I've gotten very good at, or at least I'm used to it,

  • and then all the other actors have to learn as well.

  • Which I think for them when it's new is always very jarring.

  • We have somebody, this season it was my stand-in Danny.

  • Shout out to Danny, he's not getting paid enough

  • because he had to do a lot more than an ordinary stand-in.

  • He's also in the eighth episode by the way,

  • he is the, spoiler alert, man whose wife has to kiss Forty.

  • So, it's a thankless role.

  • (laughs)

  • But we were really happy to see him on camera.

  • He reads my voice-overs, it's really strange to be honest.

  • It's very technical, it's not like normal acting at all.

  • When did you find out about the Love twist

  • at the end of season two,

  • did you know before you started filming this season?

  • I did know, I found out when I first read

  • with Victoria Pedretti, who plays Love.

  • Greg and Sarah told me after she left the room,

  • and we were talking about you know,

  • she was talented, it wasn't up to me but they

  • were kind of including me in their process.

  • And then Greg just said "Do you want to know?"

  • and I said "Yeah, that'd help."

  • And he's like "All right, so she's a killer."

  • and I was like "Oh interesting".

  • But what they didn't tell me,

  • was that Joe would not like that.

  • I just imagined like, okay so we're gonna

  • go on some weird Bonnie & Clyde season three kind of thing.

  • And that, maybe that still will happen, I don't know.

  • The part that I didn't know about, that I was upset about

  • was that Joe, I mean it is consistent with Joe,

  • wouldn't accept Love.

  • That really hurt my heart, but again

  • it's morally consistent with Joe's immorality.

  • What's your favorite behind-the-scenes memory

  • from filming You season two?

  • Damn, it's a real, it's all like a blur.

  • 'Cause there was so much that I had to do.

  • For some reason, what's coming to mind is the fact

  • that I wasn't able to work with John Stamos again

  • which is a deep pain that I can't talk about.

  • But when I saw him, I forgot that he was in it

  • and then I saw him I was like "Get the, out of here"

  • John Stamos is in this show,

  • and he looks amazing in his jumper, and beard.

  • Do you think Joe definitely wants to find true love?

  • No, actually okay to be fair to his humanity

  • because we all need to worry about Joe's humanity more,

  • yeah I think he does want to find true love,

  • but he has not effing clue where to find it or how,

  • which is, you know, like a lot of us.

  • And do you think that he's found that with , no!

  • No, they both kill people okay.

  • How could that be true love?

  • I don't want to police people's feelings anymore,

  • it's exhausting.

  • (laughs)

  • What has it been like seeing the response to Joe online?

  • It's been interesting.

  • Is it odd for you to see people lusting

  • after a character that is inherently bad?

  • No because again, I mean come on look where we are,

  • like it's not weird, it's consistent with where we are.

  • So I think it makes a lot of sense, and thank God

  • we can have these kinds of conversations around it.

  • You know all of my like, moral policing

  • is just is in good humor, tongue-in-cheek,

  • I hope everybody understands that.

  • Do you think that Love is equally as bad as Joe?

  • I mean, yeah.

  • Like is she different?

  • Probably yeah, has he finally met his match?

  • Yeah apparently.

  • You'll have to tune in won't you?

  • I don't know though, I mean it's not up to me.

  • I just make the words come to life.

  • What can you tease about the neighbor

  • at the end of the season?

  • I know literally nothing.

  • Here's my theory, it says do you have any theories?

  • Yeah I think they're probably not gonna use the woman

  • they cast because they didn't know what they were gonna do.

  • This is the way television works,

  • no matter if it's good or bad or anything in between.

  • It's just, you can't know more than where you're at.

  • There is so much that goes into writing a season,

  • conceiving a season for the writers,

  • I mean they've got to arc out, I mean it's just a lot.

  • It's an organizational frickin' feat.

  • Yeah I mean he had to go back to his original Joe pattern

  • of literally the grass is always greener

  • on the other side of the fence, his fantasy.

  • I'm most interested in what's gonna happen

  • between Love and Joe, because they have a child.

  • Spoiler alert.

  • It would be great if I always said spoiler alert after.

  • I always spoil, that's what I'm gonna start doing.

  • Yeah, I have no theories,

  • I think that it's probably not gonna go in the direction

  • it seems like it is right at the end,

  • I think it's probably gonna like,

  • they're gonna do what they want, and deal with the neighbor.

  • I don't know, kill her!

  • That's terrible, and we can't even joke about that.

  • Thank you so much for tuning in.

  • If you haven't yet, please check out

  • You season two on Netflix, not the first season.

  • (lauging)

  • (upbeat music)
