is a super fast pace . Michael Chernus ( who played Doug ) met me for lunch one day . He did not audition because we just offered the role to him . He had been in films like Captain Phillips , Spiderman : Homecoming , and Men In Black 3 , so he was used to having a trailer and stuff . He asked , “ How do you expect to get actors to such deep places at such a fast shoot ?” Michael said that I replied , “ I don ’ t know .” He said a bullshitter would have said something like , “ Don ’ t worry about that , I ’ ll get you there .”
Apparently my honesty was very disarming to him . With people like these actors , you can see them act and have a sense that they can get there . They were working under very difficult conditions because they had to do so much crying , Michael had to fall down stairs and stuff . It was very hard . I think what they did is absolutely amazing and a testament to their talent . I ’ m incredibly flattered and grateful that they took a chance on me .
