Watch ‘Rick and Morty’ Boss Get Drunk in Season 3 Recording
If you thought near-constant burps were a challenge for Rick and Morty creator/voice Justin Roiland, you should see him try Rick’s drinking. In fact , you can! Watch this new Season 3 preview, as Roiland knocks back shots to channel an extra-drunk day for Rick, and achieves less-than-productive results.
Co-creator Dan Harmon bookends the new Adult Swim behind-the-scenes featurette, admitting he advised Roiland (who voices both Rick and Morty) to go method for an upcoming episode in which high-functioning alcoholic Rick needs to seem drunker than usual. Associate producer Sydney Ryan was none-too-happy with Roiland’s subsequent work ethic, but thankfully, Harmon provides her with a special concert at the end.
Even as Rick and Morty Season 3 is finally in the bag with a summer premiere (a real one, anyway), the video also offers an amusing window into the show’s belabored production. Season 2 last aired in 2015, and we’ve had no shortage of comments from Harmon suggesting their process sometimes takes longer than expected.
In the meantime, watch the latest Season 3 promos below, and stay tuned for official word of Rick and Morty’s return this summer.
