‘Psych’ Actors Are The New ‘Ebony & Ivory’

VANCOUVER, B.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Move over Paul McCartney and Stevie WonderPsych actors Dule Hill and James Roday are the new “Ebony & Ivory.”

Hill and Roday play lifelong best friends on the comedic mystery series Psych.

The duo recently filmed a promo for Psych in which they sing “Ebony & Ivory,” sporting the same cheesy outfits and moves as Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney had in the original 80s music video.

Hill says filming the silly promo for the new season was fun, but rough on his pipes.

He couldn’t hit the high notes quite like Stevie, despite repeatedly watching the music video on YouTube and practicing for hours.

For Roday, it was a challenge living up to the legendary “Ebony & Ivory” masters without borderline insulting them.

He says, “We didn’t want to make fun of Paul and Stevie. But when we watched their video we realized it WAS actually dated and corny. We loved it!”

Admittedly, both Hill and Roday still haven’t gotten the catchy BFF tune out of their heads.

Season three of Psych premieres July 18 on USA Network.
