In an interview on the Jim and Sam show, Reddick told the hosts he had workshopped a few scenes behind the show.
In one infamous scene, Reddick sits across from Andre, who is asking him questions, and Andre jumps up, slams the desk, and storms off the stage.
According to Reddick, Andre had no idea it was coming.
“He just told me to get really angry,” he explained.
Andre said: “Lance Reddick came on in Season 2; since then we realized that every single guest has to be in the dark and pranked or you compromise and jeopardize the stakes and reality of all the other guests,
“You’re going to such great strides to make sure it reads like what it is, so even if you let one guest here or there kind of have fun with you, it compromises all of the other ones.”
