But I am a firm adherent that assuming you’re going to complete a sports film, you’ve got to get the sport right. I find it immensely disrespectful when movies don’t do that. I was immensely grateful to the makers to give me the infrastructure to truly become familiar with the sport of tennis. I trained at an institute out here in Ojai for three hours per day. I lost 30 pounds. I would gain proficiency with the sport of tennis, but then I additionally got to figure out how to mentor. I worked with a top 50 junior nationals player named Kamea Medora, who was great, and I trained her in character.
To have the option to do those drills and have the option to mentor in character, I felt that then stepping in, I was in a great spot. The other thing is, Rick I mean, other than the unimaginable sexiness and beauty of that mustache, and your general thing you’ve got going on you have one of the most remarkable voices and dialects and discourse patterns of anybody I’ve heard. That was one thing I truly wanted to get right but the thing that I felt like I was most interested in was your heart. Your heart, loving these two young ladies, loving this family, wanting to be a part of this mission. Furthermore [having production] shut down for a long time [during the pandemic] gave me six additional months to continue to plan, continue to play, continue to train.
