Your new movie The
Getback - in a few words, what is it about?
This is a sort of a bounty hunter having to bring back a guy, and it

How did the project fall together in the
Tubi liked the script and it came together with the producers, who have
a relationship with Tubi.

Getback's writers Chad Law and Garry Charles, and what was your
Great writers. Chad is a writing machine. Always a good time if Chadís

Of your films two protagonists
Cooper and Gordon, who could you actually identify with more, and why?

really understand the story.

Getback's cast, and why exactly these people?

platforms, and then I think it will be back on Tubi.
