Do you have a problem with that, because you’re the Michael Myers now?’ And I was like, ‘Oh my God. Are you kidding? What an honor it would be, first of all to meet the guy, but secondly to work with him. How good does that get?’” “So we started work, and I can’t remember if it was the second or third week that Nick came in and did kind of a cameo.
