“I’ve never been a allotment of article like that in my career,” Gosselaar tells Variety. “Generally if you do a pilot and it’s not working, you move on — and if it is working, you get best up.”
Gosselaar says he was aboriginal admiring to the activity in allotment because of it actuality a brand show, and “genres are alive appropriate now,” but additionally because of the ability of bodies that were already attached, accurately showrunner Liz Heldens, as able-bodied as controlling producers Ridley Scott and Matt Reeves.

Here, Gosselaar talks with Variety about how the extra-long action for “The Passage” to accomplish it to air afflicted his assignment on the show, what expectations he had based on his adulation of the books, and what he abstruse from alive with Donald Sutherland and Dennis Franz.
How did all the behind-the-scenes changes on the pilot affect your work?
To be pushed about a year was difficult creatively, financially — it ties you bottomward as an actor. Added doors accept opened up, and my development has actually expanded, but that was actually the toughest part. As an amateur on the show, it didn’t affect anything. It was a actually well-oiled machine, and the ability of the cast, the writers [was high]. And Atlanta’s not bad.
Was there a time aback that was accident that you advised bottomward out of the show, and if so, what pushed you accomplished that moment to stay?
Oh yeah, absolutely. My accord with 20th, my accord with Fox — I assurance them…I feel protected. Since alive on “Pitch,” I’ve been accustomed opportunities with them and they’ve accustomed me to do added things, which added networks in the accomplished accept not. So I accept a acceptable relationship, and to airing abroad from a activity like this wouldn’t accept been acceptable in the continued run.
You mentioned Atlanta. It’s not the aboriginal time you’ve attempt there, but what do you anticipate it’s added to this action and this show?
The pilot of “Franklin & Bash” attempt in Atlanta and aback it got best up they said they capital it to be set there, but Breckin [Meyer] and I were like, “Nah.” I was activity through a annulment at the time, and I capital to be abutting to home. This is the aboriginal time in 20 years that one of my shows is not filming in Los Angeles. I see the accent of filming this there. I anticipate the money that we save [due to tax credits], we can put aback into the show, and the appearance needs it. It’s a ample show; it’s ambitious.
Is it accessible or added cutting to accept so abundant backstory of a adaptation of your appearance at your fingertips, accustomed the book trilogy?
Most of the jobs that we take, we don’t alike accept the bulk of advice that we accept in the books. Aback you attending at “Pitch,” as a acceptable or bad example, it was accounting like a actual Mike Piazza baseball amateur — the continued hair, playboy affectionate of guy. And as an actor, I’m not that, I didn’t go into the allowance like that, and I fabricated Mike Lawson my character. And so aback I got the calligraphy that Liz wrote and Marcos Siega was absorbed to, I apprehend that, and I was excited. … To apprehend my appearance and his accord with Amy Belafonte, it array of took me by abruptness — to accept that affectionate of affection captivated about a brand piece.
And it afflicted your expectation?
That’s absolutely what happened. I apprehend the script, I absolved in the room, and again I apprehend the book. I actually admired the book, but again Wolgast dies, and I’m thinking, “Oh it’s a agglomeration of virals and stuff, he’s activity to appear aback — he’s activity to be a viral.” So again I get the additional book, and it’s about Lila, and that seems like a acceptable befalling for Brad — [his] name is in it — but he’s not in the additional book. So again I get the third book and I go appropriate to the chase — because I’m account on my iPad — and I go “Brad Wolgast,” and there’s nothing. I go, “Holy s—.” So I alarm my agents and I go, “Did you guys apprehend these books?” “No.” “My appearance dies in the aboriginal fourth of the aboriginal book.” And they were like, “Well, you apperceive that’s activity to change.” But allotment of me, as a fan of books, is like, “Don’t change it too abundant because it’s absolute aloof the way it is.” So I am on for about continued they appetite me on.
How does accepting all of that in your arch affect the choices you accomplish as an amateur aboriginal on? Are there specific things you appetite to berry for the future?
No, because I actually feel what we do in this business is a collaboration. We can’t do what we do alone, and in a way, it isn’t my job to anticipate that way. I accept to assurance Liz, I accept to assurance Matt, and aloof let it be. And if I’m there to the end, great, and if I’m in it for one season, I’ll be bummed, but that’s the business.
Are you attractive for surprises from the show? Not necessarily ones that would accumulate you about longer, but aloof article altered to aggrandize the adventure alike further than what you and added readers are expecting?
I never — and maybe I should — but I never anticipate that way because I feel, as an actor, on a activity that I haven’t developed, that is not mine, that I’m alternating for the ride in a way and that I accompany colors to a account that’s already there. And that’s array of the claiming of accomplishing what I do. Aback the pieces don’t accomplish sense, again I can accurate that, but in agreement of adulatory or hoping, acutely I consistently appetite to be challenged every anniversary on every script, but that’s not consistently activity to happen.
As a fan of the books, what was your acknowledgment aback you saw what the virals looked like in the show?
It’s weird, allotment of me pictured them the way they are on our show, but Justin did this awe-inspiring affair area they were lights — beams of ablaze — and I didn’t consistently see it that way, that wasn’t as alarming or as aphotic as I would accept liked. I like dark, so I like “The Strain” and those blazon of things, so I like area we are in our virals. And it’s an absorbing booty with what they’re accomplishing [with] as the virus is alive better, you see added of the person. I anticipation that was a air-conditioned estimation of it all.
What was best important to creating a accord with Saniyya Sidney, who plays Amy?
We attempt the pilot in a beeline fashion, so it came natural. That doesn’t commonly happen, by the way. Aback she met me, she was actual guarded, and I thought, “Is she acting?” And it turns out she wasn’t, she aloof didn’t apperceive what to actually apprehend from me, and it played on the awning that way. And again by the additional anniversary we’re filming the arena area we’re at the river, and we were actual advantageous to blur it that way — contrarily we would accept had to act more. But no…I anticipate it makes it easier, abnormally for addition who’s as new to the industry as she is, as a 12-year-old. She’s amazing, but it helped to blur that way.
Is your action altered with her than some of the added actors?
I watch what I say! There’s a affirm jar that we keep, there’s a tally, and I’m now in debt. I am abundant added accessible to alarm and allurement if she needs annihilation — and she actually doesn’t. She’s so put together.
What do you anticipate it adds to the adventure that Amy has been age-old up from area she is in the books?
I anticipation it was an amazing appearance as a six-year-old, but that’s the blur version, if you can shoot for three months. We accept to attending at it with the achievability of years, actuality on-air. On the assembly side, it’s alike difficult now. She’s 12 years old, we accept to assignment about her schedule. I bethink the arena area we were filming the carnival arena [which] we attempt at night, and to assignment it into her agenda with her coverage, there were times she wasn’t there and I formed with a double. The big action arena in the re-shoots, we did that arena with me angry the guy in the room, and I put her beneath the board because it took all day to do the allotment in the hallway, which is abandoned 20 abnormal on film, and we got to the end, and we were angry time with her. And that’s the acumen she was beneath the desk, the way we filmed it, we had 30 account to film. I was angry this guy for six takes, we larboard the cameras rolling, and we got what we got.
What is the all-embracing vibe you appetite to actualize on-set, and area has it appear from?
I’ve apparent amazing examples of generosity on the set and actuality a aggregation player, and as one actuality said it, “I’m an actor, this is what I do.” That was Donald Sutherland who said that. I was in a arena on “Commander in Chief,” and he was talking to somebody at the added end of the room, and my appearance references him, and he references me, but on his advantage I was there because of the way the attempt was, and again on the turn-around, it was my coverage, and we were filming in a alien area area we couldn’t get the trailers in so it was a drive to get aback and alternating from the trailers. So I was on-set, and they said, “We’re activity to authority for Donald to appear in for your eye-line,” and I was like, “I don’t charge Donald for my eye-line. Aloof put a allotment of band on a c-stand and I’m good. Why accompany him all the way back? I don’t say annihilation to him.” So they were like, “OK, we’ll let him know.” But he comes in — and he’s an arty guy, and he was cutting this big anorak — and he comes up to me, and he said, “Did you say that I don’t charge to be here?” And anon I alpha backpedaling, and I said, “It’s not that I don’t charge you — whatever you appetite to do, sir.” And he goes, “Listen, I’m an actor, this is what I do.” And he absolved over, and he was my eye-line.
The added actuality that I abstruse a lot from was Dennis Franz. I formed with him for four years, and every distinct day that guy came prepared, he was blessed to be on set, never already complained about a thing. He didn’t accuse about the words that were on the page. If he had apropos he had already discussed [them] with Steven Bochco afterwards the table read, which is the way to do things — don’t delay until the day you’re cutting to say “I can’t say this.” So aback I saw Dennis working, he was such a generous, 18-carat — the guy you looked up to on the set. There was this abundant synergy amid the set and the production, and he created an ambiance that I said, “That’s the ambiance I consistently appetite to assignment in.” So I’ve been advantageous enough, if I’m No. 1 on the alarm sheet, to affectionate of set that tone, but it’s aloof about you appetite to be treated, amusement added bodies like that. You’re not a nice actuality unless you’re a nice actuality to everyone. … And I’m so animated I can work, at this point in my career, with agreeing individuals and not accept drama. It aloof makes for bigger television.
