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
