Lawrence plays against type as Jasper – the rude owner of a “Melbourne hipster cafe”.
In episode 2 of Channel Nine’s successful TV drama series House Husbands, Kane (Gyton Grantley) seeks a job at Jasper’s Cafe but is knocked back by Jasper (Lawrence) who is less than impressed and more concerned with checking his tweets. Later, he comes back to the cafe offering to sell Jasper a consignment of his homemade specialty: “Kane’s Pies”.
Lawrence’s disillusioned pie eating reached 1.2million viewers. Logie for Most Unconvincing Hipster, anyone?
