Reporter: Before we start rolling some acting advice courtesy of my costars. I'm glad I'm here and thank you for having me because a lot of people think you and I are the same people. I'm going to show them something. My gap has chose. And his is wide. Immensely. I think it's a compliment to me because I've been in the gym. So for them to confuse me with this?

Roof, roof, roof! I bite the side of my tongue, nod. Mm! Every time I watch and I see you like this? Yeah. I have to make it a little more subtle. So it's not like this.
