One of the Mr. Robot stars was stuck in sleep mode when the USA Network drama picked up a half-dozen Emmy nominations earlier this month.
In fact, it was no less than Lead Actor in a Drama nominee Rami Malek who wasn’t awake for the big announcements, the actor confessed to Michael Ausiello at TVLine’s Comic-Con studio presented by ZTE.
After weighing in on the acclaimed drama’s receipt of largesse, Malek, Christian Slater, Carly Chaikin, Portia Doubelday and Season 2 addition Grace Gummer in the video above proceed to sing the praises of their “inhuman” creator (and director of all episodes), Sam Esmail.
They then get to promising answers (at least to some dangling Season 1 threads) and teasing the “badass,” film-like Season 2 finale (even revealing at least one person who is in the very final scene).
Oh, and to be sure, they share their take on the twisty theory making rounds, about what Season 2 is really about. (Skip 3:30-4:15 if you wish to remain speculation-free, as their theory does affect viewing of the episodes.)
