Teen Beach 2's Butchy has some of the coolest style around, but his wardrobe doesn't change very much. In fact, when we chatted with John Deluca, the actor who plays him, he revealed that Butchy only wears one single costume throughout the whole franchise!
"Let's talk about costumes for a second, because I like my costume, but I don't change the entire two movies," John tells TWIST exclusively. "I'm the only character that has the same outfit the entire time. So that equates to like four months of shooting over the two movies where I have the same jeans and it’s one shirt."
We always imagined that movie sets had entire racks filled with identical costumes so the actors could switch their physical outfits without changing their looks, but John says this wasn't the case on this movie, because the style was so unique.
"It's this like old school 1960s terry cloth, one-in-the-world vintage t-shirt that they had, and it kept shrinking as we shot so over the course of the first movie," John shares. "By the time we finished shooting the first one, it shrunk so it was up so high that I had to pin it to my jeans. [Otherwise,] I'd put my arms up, and I would have like a crop top on."
"By the time the second movie came around, I was just pinning it, and if I had to take a bathroom break I would have to unpin everything," he explains. "But I love my costume, I’ve gotten to know it very well. And... the jeans are very tight."
Keen-eyed TB2 fans will notice that Butchy's wardrobe gets a makeover in this movie! "I do have a slight costume change because there’s a twist at the end of this movie that necessitates that, but even then it’s essentially the same exact thing," John shares. We wonder if we'll be able to pick up on the change!
"Outside of my particular costume, the costumes [in TB2] are so much fun, and they look great on screen," John adds. "They are so bright and so different [wardrobe] did such a good job."
