Keri and Scott at Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Keri and Scott, 43 followed up Russell’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony with a late-night appearance, and the co-stars opened up about playing the on-screen love interest. The reel life couple, Felicity Porter and Ben Covington, which aired on the WB drama from 1998 to 2002, and the short-lived real-life romance followed. The funny fact was, Speedman recalled being a “disaster of a boyfriend” to which Russell agreed!
Russell and the Animal Kingdom actor, went out when they starred on series Felicity, which was broadcasted from 1998 to 2002. Speedman recalled on Tuesday night,
“We were actually dating at the time and I had been such a disaster of a boyfriend up until [then] and I knew I had to put on a good show. I knew I was going to see her new haircut and I was like, ‘Come on man, you got to bring it home. You gotta do it. And I got to work and she turned around the corner and my face sort of froze in a half panic, half smile sort of situation. I just didn’t pull it off and she called me out.”
“It was a Chia head sort of look,”
To which Russell replied:
Where Speedman interrupted,
“But it grew into something great. We all recovered.”
Kimmel, 51, couldn’t let the “disaster of a boyfriend” comment go, though — and wanted more details and Russell explained,
“A young ’20s boyfriend is called a disaster of a boyfriend,”
Where Speedman added,
“Not much has changed!”
Despite their breakup, the former costars have maintained a very good friendship. Speedman even attended Russell’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony earlier in the day. Russell said,
“I have my core friends in L.A. and Mandy and Scott — I feel like they always have my back. They would fight someone for me.”
As for a Felicity revival?
“I would do it. Some people are on really high-class shows. I would do it in a heartbeat”
