Actor's Comments

I knew what Robert and Quentin were going for because as cheesy as all of that was, there was a cool element to it as well that I can’t really describe. You had to feel it, you know? I knew that Quentin and Robert were just trying to take that cool element and add a real budget and add real actors and a real story behind it.
