  • You shouldn't.

  • That's not enough.

  • I need more back in.

  • Yeah.

  • No, I came on us.

  • And one of the best auditions, I think most enjoyable, I think for me, because Nat and Jim were both there, and they're laughing up a storm and just really made me feel comfortable enough to do whatever I had to do with the character.

  • I think not nervous at all.

  • So yeah, I really thank them for that.

  • I think they help me to get the part by being so down to earth.

  • So was it scary to carry this much of the movie?

  • Uh, when I I worked every day, I worked on the film and I remember before anticipating it, be anticipating that what was gonna happen, you know?

  • No, no, I I don't think I ever felt never have you been doing You've been doing that TV show for a while.

  • Yeah, I've been acting for about 56 years now, so I kind of knew a little bit what to expect.

  • But I never had a role.

  • This'll lead role before, But I hope that if any acting jobs in the future would be as enjoyable as this one because I worked five days a week, but it felt like it's seamless.

  • I was working in a water park and the beach in some of the funniest people on our foot earth were there, so I was never unhappy.

  • It was never stressed out.

  • Really.

  • I just had a great time.

  • So the emotional stuff come easily to you because you're, like, kind of straight man in this show.

  • Really?

  • Yeah.

  • I mean, it's it could be quite.

  • You have to really think about it.

  • And you have to really think about what's gonna make sure that it's gonna get there.

  • I think one of the great scenes one of the great memories I'll have with me and Sam film the scene on top of the water slide after the party.

  • And I tell him all about what's happening at home and yeah, and he just went above and beyond with being so generous and just helping me out with all that stuff.

  • And I think it really, really helping out.

  • So you're You're great.

  • In that scene, we shot a couple different ways that seem that work you guys are doing together in the moment between takes.

  • So are you doing it before you get to the set that well, we ran the line.

  • We would run the scenes, you know, before just on our own.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • And I can't remember specific examples, but I just remember that that he was just He was there to push me in the heat.

  • You say you push, push me Night crab.

  • Yeah, that's right.

  • Get your energy up.

  • And so the ST John to tour it took me that you kind of push up.

  • Spacey and they were hot.

  • Hot sun, too, were in the hot sun so that it'll tire you out, too.

  • You have energy issues or because you're always gets people expect you to be up.

  • Not at all.

  • Uh, no.

  • I mean, I think you know, I'm pretty good, you know?

  • You know, we we work out right way of good energy, like Alison.

  • Jenny was saying it was like, exhausting playing her character because it was, like, so intense in the she's not really that intense, but sure, sure.

  • Yeah, Shoes of.

  • She's a whirlwind.

  • She's a tornado in that in the movie.

  • But you are, too.

  • Yeah, I was too.

  • I had a lot, a lot of text.

  • And they were walked and talked a lot of walking talks, you know, we're the whole big god.

  • Yeah, that was called The Wonder of Goodfellas.

  • They called the get Where introduced the big fall where they just follow you around the whole park.

  • Yeah, and there were a few of those kind of walk in talks with lots of dialogue.

  • Yeah, man.

  • And I had to spit it up pretty quickly, so that was that was challenging you.

  • Is that the fun of it?

  • Maybe read a script like, Is that what's gonna be the Yeah.

  • I mean, the fun of it is is, um I think it is creating this character and having those that stuff come to life, you know, and really breathes life into it and and make it feel spontaneous.

  • That's always He did it 100 different ways.

  • He did a every man there.

  • Sometimes you go too far with comedy itself, with stylized things Are you know, I always want to keep it rial.

  • You know, even if you're goofing around, I like to have it rooted and grounded.

  • You know, I don't want it to be Oh, I don't want I hate overacting, which I've done some of that.

  • I've smacked it a lot in my lifetime, but I try not to and try to keep your real one of the things in, like, seven psychopaths, where your character has to keep it close enough to the reality that's a theatrical person, like he's a theatrical character.
