Pedro Pascal Invented A Fake Satanic Language For NYPD Blue

That is a lot of jewelry, Pedro Pascal! “There was a really, really unusually fun character that I played on ‘NYPD Blue,’ this goth guy named Dio,” Pascal recalled. “And he had all these fake piercings and was just a teenager hitting on the female cop.” The actor then proceeded to explain why, of all things, he wound up inventing a fake Satanic language for the crime drama:

“At one point, he has a pentagram on the inside of his palm that they made with a black sharpie and I lick it and I make up some Satanic language. I thought it was supposed to be like, Latin or something. And I remember thinking, ‘Do you have Latin words I’m supposed to learn?’ and they’re like ‘No dude, just make it up.’ And I was like, oh, okay. It was a kind of thing where I licked the hand, and then I turned slowly toward the camera going [fake Satanic language] some crazy s*** like that on an episode of your ABC Network television hit, ‘NYPD Blue.’ I made up the language.”

The scene happens about 35 minutes into the episode, and the subtitles simply list what he’s doing as “speaking in tongues.” He’s pretty creepy. (I think Grogu is too young to see his Papa Mando in this role.) Pascal made a number of one-off appearances on other TV series early in his career too, including “Touched by an Angel,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and “Without a Trace.” I don’t know about, but I know what I’m doing with my weekend now.
