C*A*U*G*H*T's Lincoln Younes spills on X-rated scenes

EXCLUSIVE: The cast of C*A*U*G*H*T reveal all about the show's wild scenes.

Stan's new series C*A*U*G*H*T is possibly one of the wildest shows to be released in Australia with several X-rated scenes featuring full-frontal male nudity.

The show is a satirical comedy that sees four Australian soldiers (Kick Gurry, Ben O'Toole, Alexander England and Lincoln Younes) sent to the war-torn island of Behati-Prinsloo on a secret mission.

When the soldiers are mistaken for Americans, they are captured by freedom fighters and held captive. However, they soon create a deal with their captors and decide to create a hostage video that will work to both their advantages. When the videos start going viral, the boys realise this might be the best thing that could have happened to them.

The comedy also stars major Hollywood stars Sean Penn, who appears as himself, Susan Sarandon and Matthew Fox.

The Aussie stars of the show, along with Matthew, appeared at the blue carpet premiere at the Sydney Opera House on Wednesday night, with Lincoln Younes spilling on his character Albhanis' nude scene in episode one, which sees the star wear a large prosthetic penis that ends up in Ben O'Toole's character Rowdy's face at one point.


Speaking about the scene, which appears in Stan's first ever red-band trailer (you can see it here if you're over 18, but be prepared as it is very NSFW), Lincoln tells us, "It's funny because it's not like I got the script and then had to look at it, we were there from the start, and so it's very weird when your friends write [that scene] in and you just kind of go, 'What are we getting out here? Why are we reshooting this?' because we reshot that three times!"

When asked how he prepares for a nude scene like that, Lincoln jokes, "A lot of oil – nah I'm kidding! I don't know, you don't! You go comfortably numb, you go somewhere else."

Ben shares with us that it was the second time they'd had to shoot the scene, as they'd initially shot a proof-of-concept to get the show made.

"Understandably, that scene is one of the reasons the show got made, also one of the reasons it's taken us so long to get it made, because people are like, 'This is hilarious, but do people want to see this?' The answer is yes, the answer is absolutely!" Ben tells us.

"People do want to see it!" Alexander England, who stars as Phil in the show, adds excitedly.

"But it's not an easy day, it's a lot of nudity, a lot of being in very uncomfortable positions and then you've got to try and act on top of it and tell a story and there's a big, gigantic, prosthetic penis in your face, and you know, it stole the show!" Ben jokes.

'It gets wilder'

While the nude scenes are pretty wild, Alexander promises the show gets even crazier as it goes on.

"I think the wonderful thing about this show is that as you keep going, it keeps getting crazier, it gets wilder and wilder and you think you've seen everything by the end of episode three, and then episode four comes in and blows your mind again, so there are so many scenes that were so much fun to shoot, it was a delight," he shares.

Lincoln agrees, explaining, "I don't want to spoil anything, but let's just say the first two episodes are the tamest, I watched [episode] four today and it's bonkers, it's the most outrageous episode of television I've seen in a long time."

He adds, "There's not one take that we did in the entire show where someone didn't laugh, whether it was the crew or the cast. So, every single take was messed up by someone in the production. Which I think is kind of a record, it must be!"

Look out for Easter eggs

With the show taking place on an island called Behati-Prinsloo, yes – the same name as the Victoria's Secret model married to Adam Levine, we asked the stars if there are any other Easter eggs fans should be aware of, with Alexander revealing, "There's a few Easter eggs! In fact, if you keep a close eye on – when we get thrown into other gear, we all have names [referencing his jacket pocket], that's a nod to something!

"And I think they're littered throughout, there are a lot of references, this is a show about pop culture as well, about social media, about viral things, so there are a few references to viral videos that you'll catch."

Ben adds, "And there's quite a few people that show up, that nobody's aware of, so watch to the end!"
