“I was exhausted, soaked with sweat, and the lines got worse and worse. And I said, ‘Okay, you better show me the whole rest of the movie, so we can see what we’re dealing with.

What the f*** was Coen thinking?’ And then they explained it to me: it wasn’t written by that Joel Coen.”

He also shared in a different interview, “I love the Coen brothers movies. I think that Joel Coen is a wonderful comedic mind. So I didn’t really bother to finish the script. I thought ‘he’s great, I’ll do it.’”
