Actor James Roday stars on the USA Networks comedy Psych, where he plays a cop who feigns psychic ability.
The role isnt the first time hes faked who he is to get ahead.
Roday recalls a time in college when he pretended to be a professional tennis player while hitting on a girl.
He says, She was like, Ive never heard of you. I told her I was working my way up the ranks and that I wasnt in the top 100 in the rankings yet. I just kept thinking, Wow, I cant believe Im doing this. What started as a pickup line became me making up an entire life.
Roday admits that his fib worked like a charm on the unassuming girl, but admits it was a lot of work.
The fourth season of Psych premieres this Friday (Aug. 7) on USA.
