Josh (Duhamel) and all of these incredible actors. I just was like, ‘How can I weasel my way in?'”
During filming, Jason had a shoot a sex scene with Emmy. So, had the two met before filming? “No I don’t think we had met,” Jason revealed to us. “Yeah I think we met on this movie. She’s so fantastic, she’s really sweet and a wonderful actress.”
Since they hadn’t met, did they do some icebreakers before shooting the intense scene? Jason revealed, “It was pretty intense! But, as you can see, I’m a little overwhelmed so I basically just followed her lead. She’s supposed to be the fiery spear-header of that experience. So, she was basically telling me what do to and I was following her direction as well as I could.”
