Gilmore Girls Revival: Scott Patterson Teases 'Different But Same' Luke

7daysLuke Danes will be a slightly changed man when we meet up with him in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. “He’s a little different, but he’s a little bit the same, too,” previews his portrayer Scott Patterson in the above on-camera Q&A. “He’s [still] that guy that doesn’t want to change.”

Rest assured he’s also still that guy who has mad love for a certain loquacious coffee addict. An ironclad gag order prevents Patterson from offering specifics on the status of Luke and Lorelai’s relationship, but after a little off camera coaching from a Warner Bros. rep, he offers up this non-spoiler: “They are together. And they’re trying to figure out their next move.”  

Patterson goes on to say that he and leading lady Lauren Graham “did some of the best work we’ve ever done” in the four-part revival (out Nov. 25 on Netflix), adding that Graham’s work, in particular, is “extraordinary.”

Press PLAY above to watch the latest snippet of my interview with Patterson, and then check back in the coming days for more from the actor as well as Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, and Team Palladino as TVLine’s “18 Days of Gilmore” scoop countdown continues.

    I just hope we aren’t going to have to see him once again have commitment issues. We already dealt with that in the last season and as a person who gets waaaay too into my television show, it hurt me to see them go through that. I thought we moved past that after season 7 but it worries me to see them 10 years later, not married and seemingly having relationship issues.

    …Please don’t break up my Luke and Lorelai…

    • Brandi says:

      Agreed. I’m thinking the same thing. 10 years and they aren’t married yet?!
      I just re-watched all 7 seasons in preparation for the revival. I had forgotten how involved, kind, and accommodating he was when him and Lorelei first got together. It wasn’t until April came along that he went all weird and secretive. The writers really did a disservice to Luke and Lorelei with those season 6 and 7 stories. They ruined the magic of them and gave us whiny, and pouty Christopher. I truly hope there is a good ending for Luke and Lorelei. She does not belong with Christopher, he brings nothing to the table in that relationship.

    Already seeing a new but different Luke with his new hair. Makes me think of the episode when Taylor comes back from the cruise! I cannot wait for next Friday!!!!!

    Wondering if the scene he talks about being emotional during might be a wedding… :-)

  4. Linda says:

    I feel like they waited to long none of it seem like the old chemistry,

    I know I’m late to this but … is it just me, or is there a weird vibe in these Michael/Scott P. interviews?
