Is Conrad Returning To 'Weeds?'
Romany Malco hasn't been a part of Weeds since season three, but Conrad was name-checked so many times throughout the recently aired seventh season, fans have started to wonder if creator Jenji Kohan was preparing us for his return.
I caught up with Romany after the TCA panel for his new FX animated series Unsupervised where he revealed, for the first time, what the real deal is.
"To be quite honest, I don't know if I will ever come back to Weeds," Romany tells me exclusively. "I like the way Conrad left and I love that the show is name-dropping him constantly because they know that's what the fans want. And while I would love to go back to Weeds, I would only do it for a significant opportunity and I apologize to my fans for that."
"This is a business and my rate has tripled since I left the show," he adds. "Last season, they made ample attempts but we just couldn't make the timing work. There might be some little tension now because of my lack of availability, but I've been removed from [the Weeds] world for a while."
But Romany is very clear to add that if the business side matches the creative opportunity, there is nothing he would love more than to play Conrad again. "Mary-Louise Parker is the baddest mother f***er on the planet, she takes sexiness to a whole new level and I still love the show."
Luckily Romany's fans have a lot to look forward to. Not only does he have a recurring role on The Good Wife and the premiere of Unsupervised (Thursday at 10:30 p.m. on FX) to look forward to, but his new movie -- How To Think Like A Man -- is already breaking records. "That movie broke Screen Gems' record. It tested at a 96, which is the highest a movie has ever tested at that studio," he tells me. "I'm not just spinning you here, but How Think Like A Man is the sickest f***ing movie I've seen in a long time. I think my fans are going to love it.
