Pedro Pascal Showed The Super-Unconventional Way He Memorizes Lines, And Now It's Going Viral

Pedro Pascal, Billy Crudup, Matthew Macfadyen, and Kieran Culkin joined one another for a Screen Actors Guild–American Federation of Television and Radio Artists roundtable Zoom session.

The boys had a gay ol' time talking together, and one clip in particular from the interview is going viral.

In the clip, Pedro talks about the unconventional way he memorizes lines:

"I'm going to show you this psychotic example, this physical example that I have to do to learn my lines," he says.

Then he goes to the back and pulls out a piece of paper that resembles something the Zodiac Killer would have written.

"So this is this, like, psycho first letter of every word," he says.

The guys were surprised.

Kieran couldn't handle it.

Matthew couldn't believe what he was seeing.

And Billy kind of agreed with Pedro and tried to explain the way he learns his lines in a similar fashion.

Ultimately, I guess we can assume it's totally possible this man is the late-1960s Zodiac Killer.
