Would Stephen Colletti ever consider officiating the wedding of his One Tree Hill co-star James Lafferty and Alexandra Park? Fans probably shouldn't keep their fingers crossed.

The actor reacted to the idea during a recent interview with E! News. "They know better not to have me officiate," he said with a laugh. Still, Park suggested Colletti wouldn't be a bad candidate for the job.

"This guy can pull anything off last minute," The Royals actress added. "We feel like we're in good hands."

Lafferty announced his engagement to Park back in September. But with the coronavirus pandemic and their new comedy about to hit Hulu, the bride-to-be admitted they've done a "slim" amount of wedding planning. 

The show is Everyone Is Doing Great. It tells the story of Seth Stewart (Colletti) and Jeremy Davis (Lafferty), who starred on a popular vampire series five years ago. Now, with the show over, they're trying to navigate their relationships and life post-fame. Not only did Colletti and Lafferty write and direct the series, but they also starred in it along with Park.

"I've put them on strict orders," Colletti quipped. "They are not to plan until we finish working on season two....We gotta get through season one, and then we gotta get a season two. We gotta work on that together, and then we can talk about wedding plans."

"It was amazing," she said. "I mean, working with your friends and in a much smaller cast and crew overall, it just invites a more intimate vibe with less pressure....James or Stephen would come direct me in a scene, and I'm almost, like, [I] know what they're going to say….We've got a good banter. We're very in tune with one another because we are such good friends."

In fact, she had nothing but high praise for her fiancé and pal. "These guys are amazing," she added. "I mean, obviously, watching them move from writers to directors to producers to sitting in the edit room and figuring out how to edit the whole thing for a whole year and then running the festival tours and the crowdfunding campaign, it was incredible. It was pretty mind-blowing watching these two knuckleballs pull that together and dodge all the curveballs that were flying [at] their heads at the same time. So, it was amazing."

Everyone Is Doing Great hits Hulu on Jan. 13.
