It’s a big deal. The only other time I had experience that was in The Perfect Storm and obviously it was an extremely sensitive subject because of the tragic loss of all those guys. But with Vince, he was just so happy to get the movie made and I mean, I swear to god, it didn’t matter if Jackie Chan was playing me. He would have been happy. I swear to god, he was just so happy the movie was being made.
