He and Jake Lacy are new regulars on the long-running NBC show, and Thursday’s (Sept. 20) season premiere was called “New Guys.” Duke is one of Zap2it’s Ones to Watch for this season. The former “Greek” regular shares with us what fills his iPod, who made him feel starstruck and more.
What’s the most embarrassing song is on your iPod?
It’s not a particular song, but the sheer amount of material by the Big Tymers is possibly a cause for embarrassment. I just love Mannie Fresh’s production.
Zombie apocalypse or alien invasion?
Werewolf bar mitzvah.
Do you have any current pop culture obsessions/addictions/guilty pleasures?
I don’t feel remotely guilty about it, but: “Game of Thrones.”
Who is your most recent text message from?
My brother, Chandler.
If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?
Los Angeles. I love it here. And if you don’t, go read some Chandler or Ellroy novels. And for good measure, watch the Altman version of “The Long Goodbye.” And “Chinatown.” So, so much great noir about/in L.A.
Is there a celebrity you’ve met who made you feel starstruck? Tell us about it.
Chevy Chase. He’s my childhood hero, which I told him when we met on “Hot Tub Time Machine.” (Always a good ice-breaker line.)
What do you have to have in your carry-on bag on the plane?
A book. Lens cleaner. Hand sanitizer. A concealed handgun (depends on the flight).
What food can you not resist?
Chili John’s in Burbank. They’ve been closed all of July and August (they do every year) and I am losing my mind waiting for them to reopen.
If you could guest star on one other TV show, what would it be and why?
“Workaholics.” Funniest ensemble in the game right now. Those dudes just get it.
Which character from “The Breakfast Club” would you have hung out with in high school?
I’d probably just hit on Ally Sheedy‘s character all day.
What do your friends make fun of you for?
My fabulous wealth and good looks.
What’s the most random thing in your purse or wallet?
Membership card for the Magic Castle. Best place to drink with magicians in L.A.
