The White Lotus' Murray Bartlett Hints At An Armond Spin-Off

During a recent guest appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Murray Bartlett discussed his previous work on HBO’s “The White Lotus” with the legendary talk show host. When Colbert brought up the TMZ article in which Bartlett said he’s open to returning for Season 3, the actor clarified that he’d be dumb to turn down the opportunity, revealing the idea has unofficially floated between himself and series creator Mike White.

“The night before we started shooting, we had this big dinner, and Mike White, the creator, writer, director extraordinaire of ‘White Lotus,’ made a speech and said, sort of jokingly, ‘Whoever was the nicest person and the best actor, gets a spin-off series.’ And so I was like, ‘What about me?’ And he said, I’m not going to hold him to this, but he said, ‘We could always go back in time.’ So, I think maybe like an Armond origin story? I don’t know. I’m just throwing that out there,” he said.

As Colbert and Bartlett mention in the interview, it may be hard to include Armond in future seasons of “The White Lotus,” as he met a tragic end in the Season 1 finale after an iconic scene with a briefcase. However, if Season 3, or any future season, decides to turn back the clock, Bartlett should be the first member of the cast because his portrayal of Armond was second to none, and the actor could always use another Emmy.
