Cash in IOU

“And I just fell in love with everything. I love actors. I love being in Montana and Utah. So when we were shooting my death scene, during the second or third take, I was like, ‘I’m fine. This is just makeup. Like, you don’t have to kill me.’ I started the whole Save Dave Annable campaign, not knowing what would happen to the show that became the number one show in the world,” he said. “I’m really thankful for that experience and funnily enough, Lion Was there a few years ago and then left and then came back and Taylor mentioned it to me that he wanted me to play Neil. When it came back Taylor asked me if I was still interested. And I’m like, oh, God, This is amazing. There might be some version of the IOU in there, you know, he feels bad. But I think I’m the right man for the part. And you know, Taylor has proven time and time again that he knows what he’s doing when he takes a crew and casts together. I’m over the moon. I am very grateful.”
