You might not know this, but Chris Sullivan wears a fat suit to play Toby on This Is Us. Some people feel that this takes away from Toby's authenticity, but Chrissy Metz, who plays Kate, thinks otherwise.
“We tested a lot of gentlemen who were bigger, and I get it—people think the authenticity is kind of ruined by that,” she said on Watch What Happens Live. “But Chris has been heavier, so I think he understands the plight of being overweight.”
Metz explained that wearing a fat suit is no different than wearing a prosthetic nose. She wore one herself when she played “fat lady” Ima Barbara Wiggles on American Horror Story: Freak Show.
“I wore a very large couch, basically,” she admitted. “A prosthetic suit. It’s just kind of the name of the game!”
Fat suit or no fat suit, nothing could keep us from loving Toby—especially when he and Kate are together.
