It's been a long time coming, but Roday is all too familiar with the TV graveyard filled with shows that died after their lead characters coupled up.
I was about 12 or 13, so I committed to it pretty early on," said Roday in an interview with He Wants to Play the Ultimate Conspirator on Stage Roday, who got his star on the stage at New York University, says his dream role is portraying Cassius, one of Julius Caesar’s conspirators, in William Shakespeare’s play He’s Really a Rodriguez Roday’s real name is James David Rodriguez, but he had to change it because there was already another “James Rodriguez,” a dancer, in the Screen Actors Guild. “At the time I happened to be doing a production of is, sort of, the golden ticket.The issue with this was the introduction of Rachel and finally giving Gus a relationship -- too much drama -- which was something none of us really wanted, well maybe some, but not many because it was a big part of his Character falling for the Girl.I miss Shawn the Bachelor too but his relationship with Juliet has been quite hilarious at times but Gus is the guy who always gets his girlfriend all wrong and then they break up within a week the moment Rachel came into play I knew she was going to be a normal person who will be with Gus, especially when Shawn accusing her never became a problem (Remember, From Earth to Starbucks? ) and again as with the first episode, the case wasn't very good, in-fact it wasn't about the case as it was a relationship episode between Shawn's parents, Shawn and Juliet, and Gus and Rachel and the case only made a big impact in the very end of the episode."Like all men, there comes a point where you have to acknowledge that, 'OK, we're not that young anymore.We still feel young, but it's getting harder to chase people and you go down after one punch instead of two or three,'" Roday says.
