Revenge’s Nick Wechsler on Jack Porter’s Feelings Toward Fauxmanda: “F— You!”
For the most part, Montauk’s Golden Boy Jack Porter keeps his mouth shut onRevenge. And he tends to get the short end of the paddle, especially when it comes to his free-loading baby mama, but we practically never see him complain.
In fact, last night’s episode was the first time we’ve seen him stand up to the ex-stripper and reveal his true feelings. But could this new-found “Confidence” have come from Jack’s real-life counterpart, Nick Wechsler?
The 34-year-old actor had a lot to say about his character’s rocky relationship with Amanda Clarke, aka Fauxmanda, in a recent interview. We’d like to see Jack get more of Nick’s backbone this season!
“Now that [Amanda]'s back, I think he feels like that's like 'F— you' for coming back under these circumstances!’” he told The Insider. “You only took my calls when you needed something and now you're coming back this late in the game pregnant when you need someone to take care of it? That's offensive. But Jack's so decent and loyal, so he's trying to silence the part of his mind that is screaming.”
Now that Jack and Amanda have temporarily called it quits, will he try to move in on his true love, Emily Thorne?
“I think he was hoping that it wouldn't be [his kid] so he could be with [Emily] this girl who he has a huge connection with that he can't explain,” Nick continued. “We kissed once, it was amazing, and now I have to go back to pretending I don't have these feelings for her.”
Obviously, Jack will do right by his bundle-to-be, but could he sidestep his faux-childhood sweetheart in favor of this newcomer? If he does, he’s going to hit a snag in the form of one Aiden Mathis. That British babe has more sexual tension than Ashley and Conrad in a Lexus.
Should Jack ditch Amanda and go after Emily? Weigh in below!
