The 34-year-old actor says that he went from a big city kid to a Stars Hollow townie.
“I do think very truly that maybe as I started to portray Dean more and more, they realized that my take on his character was maybe a bit more small town-y,” Jared told EW. “But I do feel like he kind of warped.”
He continued, “Moving to this very, very small town from a big city, maybe he puffed his chest a little bit, played the outsider, the badass. And then as he started to live in Stars Hollow even more, he realized that he was comfortable there and could just be himself and be a little bit more low key and didn’t have to intimidate and act like the loner James Dean-type.”
