"A guy in an airport came up and started telling me about his wife's problems with her arm," Jacobson recalls. "It became clear that he was truly seeking my medical advice. I needed to let him know that it was just a television show.
"I had no idea [what was wrong with his wife]," he continues. "She probably has lupus. That's all I can tell you."
On the bright side, we can only imagine what would happen if a fan instead thought Jacobson was really was an unrepentant collaborator with humanity's mysterious overlords.
Colony airs Thursdays at 10/9 on USA.
