The Movie Is Very Centered on Your Character and Idris Elba’s Character, but You Guys Only Really Have One Scene Together. What Was Your Experience Like Working With Him? Did You Have Any Standout Memories or Stories?

I don't even know where to start, man. I mean they continue. I woke up to a beautiful text message from him this morning. We're trying to find a way to work out. I sent him a workout, and we're trying to figure out how to do it. So, working backwards, we got very tight, very close. Artist to artist, man, I don't know. I couldn't explain to you... I'll try to, because that's what I'm supposed to do, but the admiration I have for him as an artist is on multiple levels. We share a lot of things in common, so much in fact that we're a day apart. Years apart, but just a day apart—he's born on September 6th, I'm born September 7th.
