‘SEAL Team’: Neil Brown Jr. Hilariously Revealed Costar’s Pranks on Set

by Joe Rutland

If you work enough with other actors, then there are bound to be humorous moments. SEAL Team is no different, according to Neil Brown Jr.

Brown plays Chief Warrant Officer Ray Perry on the Paramount+ military drama. He talked about the laughs and cutting-up on the show set with CBS Boston in a 2021 interview.

He’s asked if it feels different or the same at this point when watching the show.

“No, it all feels the same at this point,” Brown said. “It’s interesting, anytime I watch an episode, it’s like what’s going on behind the scenes to get that scene is always funny to me because a lot of times it’s not what you think. I look intense, but I’m actually looking at AJ Buckley behind the camera acting a fool so that stuff is all still the same.”

‘SEAL Team’ Star Offers High Praise for Drama’s Crew, Says They Are ‘So Amazing’

The SEAL Team star said a scene is “amped up a little bit though when I watch the show because I know what it took to get that shot.”

Brown also said that the crew is “so amazing and so efficient you know you don’t even notice it.

“We’ve gotten quite used to the protocols and doing things by the numbers,” he said. “I think it’s our care for each other and care for the work.”

Ray Perry happens to be the closest friend of Jason Hayes, played by David Boreanaz. Watching their interaction on SEAL Team is something to observe. By the way, Buckley plays Sonny Quinn.

SEAL Team is now over in its new home of streaming service Paramount+. The show moved from CBS in the middle of its fifth season.

Buckley Opens Up About Why He Considers Playing Quinn ‘A Dream Role’

AJ Buckley has definitely developed a loving heart toward playing Sonny Quinn.

He expands on his thoughts about the role and the show in a 2019 interview with Talk Nerdy With Us.

“The show itself follows the tier-one operators, these elite group of Navy SEALS that exist over here,” Buckley said. “They are the best of the best.”

Buckley also shared what he loved about SEAL Team is when he first read the pilot. The show carries a real human element to team members who do this job.

It’s about “what they choose to go and do and sacrifice.”

What type of road or journey has it been for Buckley?

“It hasn’t been an easy road by any sense,” Buckley said.

The SEAL Team actor also said he lived out of his car for more than a year. Yet Buckley said that “I wouldn’t trade any of those moments.”
