Patrick J. Adams, Jake McDorman & James Lafferty Mask Up For 'The Right Stuff' Premiere

Patrick J. Adams, Jake McDorman and James Lafferty all step out for the premiere of their new Disney+ series, The Right Stuff, held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., on Monday (October 5).

The three actors masked up for the event, where they were joined by their co-stars Eloise Mumford, Shannon Lucio, Nora Zehetner, Micah Stock, and Patrick Fischler.

In a recent interview, Patrick opened up about how he almost wrote to Annie Glenn while he was researching to play her husband, John Glenn, in the groundbreaking series. But, he didn’t.

“I wrote, like, about six different letters on my computer but every time it came down to send one I thought, ‘I think it’s best to just leave Annie Glenn,’ to have what ended up being her final year in peace,” he shared with ET Canada. “So I hope we did it justice and I hope somewhere they are looking down and that she looks positively on it, but I thought it best to leave her be.”

Patrick also revealed that while he had hopes of going to space, being an astronaut wasn’t a real dream for him.

“I always dreamed of going to space, but certainly never felt like I had what it took. I didn’t have ‘the right stuff,’ so to speak, to get up there,” he said.

The Right Stuff premieres on Friday, October 9 on Disney+.

If you missed it, James just announced some big news in his personal life!

Patrick J. Adams Reveals the Reason He Hasn't Spoken to 'Suits' Co-Star Meghan Markle Recently

Patrick J. Adams revealed the reason he hasn’t spoken to Duchess Meghan Markle, his former longtime co-star on Suits for years.

“Quite frankly, I think I’m intimidated,” Patrick told Radio Times. “I have no doubt I could pick up the phone and call her at any moment, but I don’t know what I would say.”

He did say they spoke after their children were born. Patrick and his wife Troian Bellisario welcomed a daughter two years ago and Meghan and Prince Harry welcomed their son Archie in May of 2019.

“After our children were born, there were some texts sent and gifts sent, but I guess I’m a little scared,” he continued. “I think it’s pure fear. I guess I’m scared about the idea of breaking through whatever walls exist to have that conversation.”

Patrick just mentioned the Duchess in another capacity – find out what he’s thanking her for.

Patrick J. Adams Explains Why He Was 'Nervous' About Playing John Glenn in 'The Right Stuff'

Patrick J. Adams is dishing on his role in The Right Stuff.

The 38-year-old actor appeared in the virtual Comic-Con @ Home panel on Saturday (July 25) to discuss his upcoming series, which will premiere on Disney+ this fall.

The Right Stuff follows “the lives of ambitious, young astronauts, who became instant celebrities as they risked their lives to be among the first to leave the planet. At the center of the story are Major John Glenn (Adams) and Lieutenant Commander Alan Shepard (Jake McDorman). Members of the Mercury Seven, the elite group of astronauts included Lieutenant Gordon Cooper (Colin O’Donoghue), Wally Schirra (Aaron Staton), Scott Carpenter (James Lafferty), Deke Slayton (Micah Stock) and Gus Grissom (Michael Trotter),” according to Entertainment Tonight.

During the panel, Patrick admitted he was “extremely nervous and freaked out” about portraying John Glenn in the new show.

“I thought, ‘There’s no way I could do this. What have I gotten myself into?’ And then I decided to get to work and took advantage of the enormous amount of information there is about John Glenn,” Patrick said. “I never had the opportunity to play someone where there’s so much written and there’s so much at your disposal. I started rereading [The Right Stuff] and going over the book he wrote [in 2000, John Glenn: A Memoir] and a couple of books that he had written about him.”

“But then I found out about the Ohio State [University] archives that had been maintained and that he played a big role in over the years,” Patrick continued, “and I managed to spend 12 hours in there going through boxes of his stuff.”

During his visit, Patrick found boxes and boxes Major Glenn had written to his wife Annie – played in the show by Nora Zehetner.

“It wasn’t just the information that was contained in the letters, it was the tone of voice, it was the way they spoke to each other, it was the way they referred to each other, it was the things he was thinking about,” Patrick said. “So it was little things like that that I kept putting into the bank.”

Nat Geo Releases First Look at 'The Right Stuff' Series; To Debut on Disney+ This Fall

The first look at Nat Geo’s upcoming space series, The Right Stuff, has been released.

The upcoming show is produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way and stars Patrick J. Adams, Jake McDorman, Colin O’Donoghue, Aaron Staton, James Lafferty, Micah Stock, and Michael Trotter.

Here’s the official summary: At the height of the Cold War in 1959, the Soviet Union dominates the space race. To combat a national sentiment of fear and decline, the U.S. government conceives of NASA’s Project Mercury, igniting a space race with the Soviets and making instant celebrities of a handful of the military’s most accomplished test pilots.

These individuals, who come to be known as the Mercury Seven, are forged into heroes long before they have achieved a single heroic act. The nation’s best engineers estimate they need several decades to make it into outer space. They are given two years.

The Right Stuff, based on Tom Wolfe book of the same name, is set to premiere on Disney+ this fall.

See the first look and images from the series below!
