  • And I'm going to let you explain the movie.

  • Oh, man, it's a hard one to explain.

  • My character has a--

  • he's a jeweler on 47th Street in New York.

  • He kind of has a gambling addiction.

  • He has a fam--

  • Kinda.

  • He kind of can't stop gambling.

  • He has a wife and kids, but he's not very good to his family.

  • He's kind of-- the addiction is ruining everything.

  • And he gets this gem from Africa that Kevin Garnett--

  • who is a great basketball player, and he's great

  • in the movie, also--

  • he comes to the shop.

  • He falls in love with the gem.

  • And it's just in and out of Kevin having the gem

  • and me needing the gem back and me placing bets.

  • And it's-- I don't know how to really sum it up.

  • But it's a very-- these guys, the Safdie brothers who

  • did the movie, they wrote it with Ronnie Bronstein

  • and directed it.

  • It's just a brand new, kind of, neat movie.

  • And I'm glad I'm in it.

  • It's so good and it's such a great dramatic role for you.

  • But it explains-- I've never understood gambling addiction

  • before, and it explains it in a way

  • that you're so anxious watching the movie.

  • I mean, you're just--

  • it's hard to watch because you're like,

  • oh my God, don't do that.

  • Don't do it.

  • Right, right.

  • Yes.

  • It's, really, you get way into the movie.

  • It gives you a stomachache, yeah,

  • because he keeps-- it keeps affecting everybody and him.

  • And you think for a second, he's going to get out of it.

  • And right away, he just jumps into another one.

  • He's got--

  • Every time he saves himself, he does something else

  • to sabotage his life.

  • And you didn't want to do this at first?

  • I read it and I loved the movie.

  • But I was scared to do it.

  • And then I asked Jackie there, we

  • do this together, me and Jackie.

  • Movies, you know, we discuss what I'm going to do.

  • And she gives me, you know, strength and courage

  • to jump into this stuff.

  • So she read it, and she's like, you have to do it.

  • And, you know, right when she says, I have to do it, I go,

  • OK, man.

  • I'm in there and I jumped in.

  • I had to do so many scenes where bad things happen.

  • I have to be naked and stuff and that's not--

  • Yes, you have to be naked.

  • That's terrible for everybody.

  • But anyways, it was an amazing time.
