To prepare for the role of Wayne Drexal, Colorado born Johnston spent weeks learning the art of faulty law enforcement from the Boulder Police Department. While there, he picked up new skills such as figuring out how long it has been since coffee was brewed, which doughnut shops have the least stale batches at 2:00 in the morning, and how to accidentally spoil a crime scene.
To prepare for the roll of Jonathan Kitter, he downloaded a ringtone from “The Breakfast Club.”
Other interesting facts about Johnston:
He can fly, but never does.
He speaks Mandarin Chinese poorly; but the Chinese folks still love him for trying.
He once passed out during a live performance of a play…from extreme blood loss.
