  1. Jason Sudeikis:

    I didn’t edit during production just because it was just too big of a load to carry with the writing and the acting, but then you know, being a producer, I was there on set every day going behind-the-scenes with notes, supporting our directors and our DP’s. When I go and watch, editing now, it’s a thrill. That’s a credit to the work that the writers did, but then also the way these actors portray them.
