‘My Boys’ Cast Duped Into Growing Beards

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Things recently got pretty hairy over on the set of TBS’ comedy, My Boys.

Series star Jordana Spiro, who plays guy’s gal PJ Franklin, helped trick her male co-stars into growing thick, itchy beards because it was supposedly “in the script.”

In reality, the guys were just supposed to grow mustaches, but ended up cultivating full-blown facial hair over the course of one month “for their craft.”

When they found out it was all a joke, Spiro and My Boys creator Betsy Thomas had a good laugh at their expense.

Spiro says giving each other a hard time comes with the territory on My Boys because the cast is so close-knit.

They’re constantly spending time together after work, going to dinner as a group, sharing inside jokes, and playing foosball – though Spiro could use some practice.

She laughs, “We have a foosball tournament coming up and I’m [co-star] Michael Bunin’s partner. I haven’t been practicing and he is NOT happy with me!”

Season three of My Boys premieres Tuesday (Mar. 31) on TBS.
