Why do you think [Ted Jr.] told Sheriff Daggett about Daniel assaulting him?
Clayne Crawford: “That’s the beginning of Teddy’s unraveling. He’s not the put-together peacock we’ve been seeing. It felt right that he had to tell someone because for a guy like Ted, that coffee incident would be such a heavy thing to carry around. That scene with the sheriff was actually one of two that Ray [McKinnon] read to me at the beginning of the second season. It was one of the first things he wrote.”
What was it like hearing him as Teddy?
"It’s a treat because he’s such a remarkable actor. We’ve all learned that Daniel, Tawney, Amantha, and Teddy are all parts of Ray. I don’t know if that’s intentional, but he’s got a good ol’ boy side to him like Teddy, he’s got a very sensitive and spiritual, beautiful side like Tawney, and then a complex unusual side like Daniel. He can also be very opinionated like Amantha. To hear him read the characters is just lovely."
