Stephen Colbert Had Penn Badgley Answered How He Got Creepy In ‘You’ And It Was Hilariously Uncomfy

It was simple, but also hard to do.

Seriously, what was everyone thinking when they asked Penn Badgley to act like Joe Goldberg in a show? A nice, sweet dream? A wonderful, peaceful sleep? Oh, well.

Penn Badgley is Joe Goldberg in ‘You’ which has returned for season 2 on Netflix on Boxing Day. The psychological thriller focuses on sociopath Joe who is also a stalker of the women he’s interested in.

And his acting has managed to scare many people as previously, he was in ‘Gossip Girl’. While people couldn’t stop calling him Dan Humphrey all the time, they did when Joe began acting so creepy in the series.

He immediately gave this stone-cold expression as if he was staring deep into you. And just like what everyone can agree on, this is a very uncomfortable gesture that makes it seem like someone is TOO keen into you.
