Un­like Roth, Black is a vet­eran of kid-friendly movies, and Owen was al­ready a big fan of his adult costars. “I love Jack in School of Rock, Goose­bumps, the Kung Fu Panda movies and more.” And I love Cate in the live-ac­tion Cin­derella.”

Work­ing with Black and Blanchett, who are both par­ents, “was amaz­ing”, Owen said. He even got to know their fam­i­lies. “It was 10 out of 10. I love them. Cate brought her kids to set. One of them, Iggy, and I would play the game Clue in her trailer,” he said.

“And as for Jack, I went to Six

Flags (amuse­ment park) with his kids, and it was a ton of fun.”

An­other high­light of his time on the movie set: pulling a farewell prank on Black.

“There are a cou­ple of scenes with an­i­mals in them, so we asked the an­i­mal train­ers if we could put a goat in his trailer,” Owen said.

“On Jack’s last day of shoot­ing, we tricked him into go­ing into his trailer one last time, and there was the goat stand­ing on the PS4 in his trailer. It was so funny.” – Wash­ing­ton Post
