Psych's Dulé Hill on Gus' New Love: He Can't Crash and Burn All the Time | TV Guide
I got the chance the other day to speak to James Roday & Dule Hill, stars of USA's hit show, . On the possibilities for any relationships coming up for Gus: . There's bound to be a way that Shawn and Gus need legal advice. After a couple years away, America's favorite fake-psychic We quizzed stars James Roday and Dulé Hill with a game we call “How Well Do. A: The key, says James Roday, 37, is his chemistry with costar Dulé Hill, “We' ve spent more time together than with our families,” he says.
We just slid down a couple boats on the pier in Vancouver. I think because the majority of the [characters] moved on to San Francisco, it was just easier to construct a story that included more people by keeping it in San Francisco. Plus it means new sets, new adventures, new stock shots. Well, there still is one. How was that to have your off-screen spouse play your on-screen girlfriend? I loved working with Jazmyn. She had us cracking up on set. It made the wait worth it.
Does him having a relationship affect the friendship between Shawn and Gus? Part Deux to find that answer.

I think it will affect him, but it will be very enjoyable to the fans. Zachary Levi plays the antagonist in Psych: The Movie, which is a genius idea. How did that happen? We would run into him a lot at NBC functions. Then when we discovered he could sing like a bird, we got the bright idea of writing him a part in the Psych musical, which because of scheduling did not come to fruition. How did that affect the movie, let alone you as a close-knit group? Obviously, our hearts were with Tim and everything else was secondary to that.
And then we have Burton Chocolate Silk Guster. Oh, Chocolate Silk, okay. And then Henry McFly. And then Chocolate Thunder. And then, my personal favorite, because I could totally see Shawn doing this is introducing him as Burton Ernie.
Anyway so that ties in with my first question. You know, I — because when he first threw that out it kind of caught me off guard first of all because I believe that was one that was just off the top of his head. And it cracked me up. I just thought it was a hilarious thing.
Stoney and the Silly-Pants, you know. Do you guys get a say in those or do they come already in the script? Are you guys having a Christmas-themed episode and if so, can you tell us anything about it?
We are returning to holiday Yule entertainment this season. But I think, you know, first on the list is when is the time to do it. About some of the upcoming episodes and storylines James: Shawn and Gus have to save a polar bear that may or may not be being framed for murder. We have an episode in a haunted house in an amusement park. That will be our finale where everything comes out in the wash. Pretty packed, pretty solid winter. Hearing Dule say this was brilliant and hysterical.
We can probably work that in there. Baseball has been on the board for awhile. Somebody has a little thing for Larisa Oleynik, huh? That was a lot of fun. She had a fun character.

She got to wear a nose ring. Not that many people who come on site can say that. On what they think makes Shawn and Gus relationship work so well since they are such polar opposites: I think you just answered it right there. I think they fill each other out.
They both bring each other to the center. You know, one is extremely to the right and one is extremely to the left and they balance each other out. I think without their relationship they would both be too far in either direction. I think Shawn would be doing something — I mean Shawn his life would be a long time ago spin out of control and Gus would be a hermit going to work, going home.
On what reality show Shawn and Gus would go on together or separately: And they would win. It would be Gus, right. How do you think your relationship with Lassiter is going to change now that, you know, they are working together more and he sees how well Shawn is working, you know, helping solve the Yin case and stuff like that?
Interview with James Roday & Dule Hill from Psych
What character dead or alive would you like to bring back? That would be someone I would like to see come back. On what they would like to see Shawn and Gus do more of: I would like to see Gus obviously release some tension. Do you remember, Dule? Yes, I mean I remember how it affects our relationship. I mean at some point he knew that Shawn and Juliet were going to get together. If we had to wait five years for them to kiss, how long do we have to wait until they actually go all the way?
But are we to assume that it happens this season? I guess so, yes.
