This weekend, Cocaine Bear will be released in cinemas, and its absurd name has already garnered a lot of interest.

Despite joking that the film might be her “career-ender,” director Elizabeth Banks was still able to recruit some well-known actors. In addition to Keri Russell and Margo Martindale from The Americans, Ray Liotta from The Many Saints of Newark, Alden Ehrenreich from Solo: A Star Wars Story, O’Shea Jackson Jr. from Straight Outta Compton, Jesse Tyler Ferguson from Modern Family, Kristofer Hivju from Game of Thrones, Kahyun Kim from American Gods, Christian Convery from Sweet Tooth, Brooklynn Prince from The Florida Project, and rookie Scott Seiss will all appear in In a recent interview with Syfy, Banks discussed recruiting the ensemble for the endeavor.

With a chuckle, Banks said, “It’s really simple with Jessie” (Banks and Ferguson are longtime friends and appeared in many episodes of Modern Family together). Margo responded, “I want to attend. It should be a lot of joy, in my opinion. But this seems absolutely crazy.

” Martindale was concerned about carrying out the stunts, according to Banks, but the Emmy-winning actor was reassured by the actress that they would make it appear real without endangering her. “I get it. She’s seventy years old “Banks elucidated. “She is not a stuntwoman, and it is very physically demanding. She probably interpreted it as a flirtatious character who will approach Jesse, but how could I handle all the physical contact? I had to really convince her that we would look after her.”

As a nearly straight woman, Keri “really is the true center of the movie,” according to Banks. She secures it, correct? In Pitch Perfect 2, we mentioned that Chubby Amy, Cynthia Rose, and Anna Camp might throw up because Anna Kendrick is simply observing everyone else’s antics while maintaining her composure. In my opinion, a movie should always have that steadying influence. And that was Keri to me.

She continued about Liotta with a smile “He was willing to do it and arrived with such enthusiasm. And he was aware of the risks he was taking. Honestly, the day he wrapped is my favorite recollection. On the ledge of a waterfall, where his very last scene was filmed, he is lying there coated in blood and guts. We wrapped him up, and after thanking everyone on the crew, he gave a really lovely speech about how everyone thinks he’s Italian because he’s portrayed these Italians. Being in Ireland was extremely significant to him because he discovered through his genetic testing that he was truly primarily Irish. And we were all in fact moved to tears by it. It was simply beautiful.”
