During the interview, they were asked whether or not they taped fake scenes to throw fans off the scent of the real plot — and apparently, they did. “There is so much secrecy around this,” Stephen said, asking Nixon and Davis “Do you worry about spoilers?,” to which Nixon replied “We worry constantly.”
“There are rumors that you guys actually shot scenes around New York that are fake scenes to throw people off the scent,” Colbert went on. “Yes. Yes, definitely!” Davis replied with Nixon adding “Absolutely not,” before reluctantly confessing “It might be true.”
“We don’t want them to know — we don’t want them to read the CliffNotes beforehand,” Nixon explained.
As far as the new additions to the cast — including our fave Nicole Ari Parker, Nixon and Davis say “they’re amazing!”
“I really am so gratified,” Nixon adds. “We knew the show was going to expand and there were going to be more people, and it was such an incredibly white show when it was on the first time. So, given an opportunity to back and change that — [it] was very welcome. But, also it was amazing to me that they didn’t try and put 25-year-olds with us. They brought us people who were very much our peers and that was amazing.”
