EXCLUSIVE: Matt Czuchry Is ‘Blown Away’ by ‘Fantastic’ New ‘Gilmore Girls’ Scripts
As his hit series The Good Wife comes to a close, actor Matt Czuchry has another exciting project in the works. The hunky 38-year-old is reprising his role as newspaper heir Logan Huntzberger in Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival, and he thinks fans have every right to be excited about the reboot.
“The fans immediately in 2007 when the show ended, felt like they wanted more,” he told ET at The Good Wife finale party at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City on Thursday. “And so it’s been that many years in the making that this has happened and the fact that it’s come together feels really, really special for all the cast, all the crew, and for the fans as well.”
Naturally, Czuchry remained mum when it came to doling out spoilers, but he did note that the scripts didn’t disappoint. The series was known for its fast-talking characters and pop culture references.
“Those four scripts, it’s 90 minute movies on Netflix and they’re incredible,” he said. “[Creators] Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino did an amazing job as to where the characters are, where they’ve been and where they’re going. We’ll see how it finishes out in the end, but they did an amazing job with the scripts. I’m blown away by their work.”
Logan was Rory Gilmore’s [Alexis Bledel] final boyfriend at the end of Gilmore Girls. He proposed to her at her graduation party and she ended up turning him down. He ended things and she went to cover then-Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. All of Rory’s main boyfriends – Logan, Dean (Jared Padalecki), and Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) – will be returning for the Netflix revival.
