Besides the return of Tanya McQuoid, the second season of The White Lotus also featured the return of prosthetic penises.
During a scene in the first episode of the season, Theo Jameswho plays cocky financier Cameron, showed off his massive extremity while changing into a bathing suit in full view of Harper (Place Aubrey), the wife of his best friend.
It turns out that Theo also received help.
“You get into these things and you have a conversation with the director and the producers and they say, ‘OK, for this we’re going to use a prosthesis. We’re gonna use something,'” the actor said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon December 2. “And you’re like, ‘OK, that sounds good. “”
Theo insisted he didn’t want the prosthesis to be “too distracting,” but as viewers know by now, it was hard to talk about anything else after the episode aired.
“We manage to define and [the make-up designer] has like a hammer or something,” Theo joked. “I mean, it’s bigger than that. It’s as if she had stolen it from a donkey in the field. I mean, the thing is gigantic.”
All things considered, it’s not the worst problem to have.
