Scott Speedman: I’d Do Felicity Reunion If My Character Became 500-Pound “Shut-in”

Scott Speedman isn't opposed to filming a Felicity reunion — with a few caveats, that is.

In the December/January issue of Playboy, the 37-year-old actor reflects on the WB drama that made him a heartthrob more than a decade ago. (The series, which starred Keri Russell as the titular character, aired for four seasons from 1998 to 2002; Speedman played the role of brooding college student Ben Covington.)

"That show didn't get massive ratings, but the fans we had were rabid. It makes you wonder what guys like Johnny Depp and Robert Pattinson go through. I never got near their level, but I was close enough to get my feet wet, to sort of peek around the corner, see the hysteria and say, 'No, thank you.'"

He continues, "I've thought about a Felicity sequel. People want a reunion. I joke that I'd totally do it if it's years later and my character, Ben, weighs 500 pounds. He's a shut-in, and they're bringing paramedics and pulleys to get him out of bed."

Speedman — who's been dating his Last Resort costar Camille De Pazzis since the fall of 2012 — says he's had some "weird experiences" with fans in the past, but they're few and far between.

"Overall I've been lucky," he tells Playboy. "I had a guy fall off my roof a couple of years ago. He'd been in the house — that was a little creepy — but when it happened I was just sitting around. I heard a crash and ran outside. He knew my name. 'Hey, Scott.' He had separated his shoulder, and he asked me to pop it back in. I'm like, 'Well, no, let's call the professionals.'"
