45 Photos That Prove Psych's James Roday and Dulé Hill Are Shawn and Gus in Real Life

It's been six years since USA Network's Psych went off the air, but the friendship between the show's stars James Roday and Dulé Hill is as strong as ever. In fact, sometimes it's hard to tell where James and Dulé end and their characters Shawn Spencer and Burton Guster begin. This is evident by their witty banter in nearly ever interview they've done together. Over the years, the actors have formed a strong bond, with Dulé often calling James his "brother" on social media and James being a groomsman at Dulé and Jazmyn Simon's 2018 wedding.

As to why their friendship as Shawn and Gus is so believable, Dulé told The Futon Critic, "we vibe very well off-camera and that helps with the chemistry onscreen, in that we both like to have a good time, crack jokes, and sing songs from the '80s, and that helps us . . . keep things in tune on-screen." With the release of Psych 2: Lassie Come Home on Peacock on July 15, we couldn't help but reminisce over some of the duo's best moments over the years ahead.
