Eugene Cordero explains the origin of Pillboi and Jason’s epic Good Place handshake
The creation of Pillboi and Jason's epic handshake in The Good Place was actually surprisingly simple.
"This handshake, it was just in the script as 'elaborate handshake,'" he told PeopleTV's Lola Ogunnaike during a recent appearance on Couch Surfing. "So we took maybe 10 minutes and just worked through it, and then tested it out in a rehearsal once. Everyone got their giggles out, and then we shot it."
But in true Jason and Pillboi fashion, the actors cannot recall the moves when fans ask them to recreate the moment now. "It's so funny because people will ask us to redo it, and we need to rewatch it because it was so focused in the moment to do it," he said. "We're like, 'Did we do that?' 'Oh yeah, we did do that.'"
