He literally sort of washes ashore.He’s trying to keep it a secret why he’s back, and what happened, but we’ll find out later on — particularly in Episode 8, we’ll find out what happened, and what this big secret is. Someone people can look to as a means of relief, be it comedic relief or musical relief, whatever. That’s what I’ll tell you. Yeah, and since I had no one to bounce things off of, I’d spend a great deal of time sitting back and watching the world, and less time participating in the world. ‘Lemonade!’ And then I saw the f*cking water that I was supposed to be in and I wasn’t a fan because I do not swim. And the world produces some pretty peculiar things, so I just report on them.Are we going to be seeing you in anything outside of the show sometime soon?Yeah, I’m filming a movie this summer called “Departures,” and I’m in negotiations for another project … That’s very important to me.I’m sure many celebrities have had moments like these, but the stories I hear from people who follow me and watch the show are so moving. These characters are still traveling through life and trying to better themselves. I didn’t even think “Peeno Noir” was going to be a thing. He’s got this job that kind of threw a monkey wrench in his plans. It’s given me an opportunity to be sort of … And it will be every bit as ridiculous as “Peeno Noir” was.Is it going to go viral, do you think?I don’t know, I don’t know! Posted May 18, 2017 by Scott HuverWhen “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” gave Kimmy’s roommate Titus Andromedon relationship lemons, star Tituss Burgess made lemonade: Beyonce’s “Lemonade,” to be precise.As the Netflix sitcom returns for a third season May 19th, one of the most hotly anticipated sequences teased in the trailers is Titus’s recreation to the pop superstar’s hugely popular song sensation of 2016, complete with some baseball bat bashing, after his burgeoning romance with Mike the construction worker hits a rocky patch. how’s the proper way to say this? And even though the sequence inspired a little initial trepidation, Burgess admits he eventually dove right in — literally.”They showed me some songs in advance of the table read,” recalls Burgess, “and I’m reading it and I’m like, ‘This rhyming scheme is awfully close to … I’ve had this one lady come up to me. So it was lovely — and I love Beyonce, so what was there not to love about that episode?”Burgess joined Moviefone to offer a peek into the equally unbreakable Titus’s Season 3 path, as well as to reveal how performing in an outrageously funny comedy has had some serious emotional resonance in his life.Moviefone: We left Titus in an interesting space at the end of the season. So I will let you all tell me.When did you realize you had such a great aptitude for comedy? Can you tease a good one without ruining the joke?There’s a song that we sing about a particular part of the female anatomy. But yes, you will. but I better not say it! I musicalize some very traumatic moments in an attempt to move through life. It’s just more than just being on a TV show and being famous. I didn’t need other people around to tell me when something was particularly funny — I don’t know if this is coming out right! Truly, even sitting in traffic; when the horns are honking I’ll notice how they’re harmonized. Her husband had just divorced her. And it seemed so lovely and so appropriate that that’s how he’d exorcise his demons in the face of heartbreak. Some of the comedy they give you to do is almost cartoon-level brilliant. And, yes, soon. It’s still Titus flailing about, doing the best he can in an attempt to be a good person. Ultimately, there was a lot of people around to make sure I didn’t drown!””I was mostly curious as to where it fit in the scheme of the narrative,” he admitted. She said she was depressed. Tell me where we pick up with him and especially his relationship journey. You’d be surprised at the number of situations Titus finds himself in, trying to be a good person.One of the things that I really love about this show is you guys go wall-to-wall with the funny, but you’re still saying something with the show. He gets an opportunity to go on a cruise. It was a long story, but the long story short, she said “It was so lovely that I could have you in my home as often as I needed you.” That’s a big deal. The music aptitude, I imagine, was something you probably knew pretty early on in life.I’m an only child, so I spent a great deal of time entertaining myself. Tell me what you like about being able to play that with so much funny on top of it.It’s largely how I live my life. Titus rarely lands an audition gig, so he gets this gig, he goes on this cruise — and he comes back prematurely. Do you know what I mean? So it doesn’t go lost on me, what we do, and I think we need some relief now more than ever.You get to play some of the show’s biggest, most outrageous moments. “It’s one thing to do a parody, but it’s another thing to do an homage and to use it as a dramatic device. Tituss Burgess: That is correct: a little monkey wrench into their relationship, which was still early on for those two. That’s a big deal. You guys decide. So being inside the world of “Kimmy Schmidt,” it makes perfect sense for me — for us — to be able to shove a lot of heart, a lot of human sentiment, into the most preposterous of comedic moments.How has this role and this job changed your life?It has given me, and the world will soon see, an opportunity to bring light to some issues concerning minorities and people in the LGBTQ community that we’ve not seen before.
