Movieweb sat down with Jayceon Taylor who we know as The Game for an interview about his new movie Waist Deep
Game talks about how it's like to wake up at 4 a.m, How Tyrese is a dude with a heart in the right place--- giving Game a helping hand by rehearsing his lines with him.
How Jamie Foxx would have felt playing Ray Charles in the Oscar Winner " Ray" --Game had to wear a prosthetic eye also.
How he would never potray any role in a movie that slightly resembles Brokeback Mountain---or act with any of its cast members for that matter.
Most importantly how he signed up for the role.
And I quote " I saw the check, and then I saw the script "
Part Of The InterviewWhat was this like for you, doing your first movie?
The Game: It was a real dope experience; I just appreciated the opportunity first of all given to me by Vondie (Curtis-Hall), he's a great director. Then, Larenz Tate and Tyrese; they were in my trailer every morning at 4am coaching me and going over lines. I had no idea that this movie sh*t is so crazy; it's the hardest sh*t in the world, it's crazy.Did you have fun?
The Game: A hundred percent; I had to fallback and jump all the way into this character and even though the character suits my lifestyle and where I'm from, being a gangster rapper and playing a character that's a villain, a gangster in the movie, but it still wasn't easy. Acting is not easy; it's long days and long nights, but at the end of the day reward is real big. I can't wait to get to the premiere.When you and Tyrese were in the trailer in the morning and off camera what did you guys talk about?
What kind of advice did he give you?The Game: He coached me on everything from facial expressions to my lines and how to deliver every word, not how to deliver every word - 'and's' and 'I's' and 'F*ck you' and 'I'll kill you.' Tyrese is great, man; he's a veteran actor and he's still under thirty. He's one of my greatest friends in the industry and is just a very talented guy and I appreciated it everyday because he didn't have to do what he did for me.Read The Entire Interview
