Meanwhile, in the pasting, talking to Entertainment Weekly about the Buddy Cop movie and how the idea came along, Jason Momoa said, “It’s amazing — you try to work your whole career to get an opportunity like this, and he just tweets something [to make it happen]. And then I got asked about it on Corden, and now our phones won’t stop ringing. So, it’s safe to say that one is happening.”
“He (Dave Bautista) did text me first, which is how respectful he is,” Jason Momoa added. “I was like, ‘Hell yes. Tell me where to sign, I’m in.’ And then it turns out he just tweeted it right after getting my approval. And then it went viral. You’re like, ‘All right, well, it’s that easy. Let’s do it, buddy.'”
