Hot Rod’ Actor Shares Special Moment With Co-Star

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Saturday Night Live actor Jorma Taccone had fun filming Hot Rod with long-time pals Andy Samberg and director Akiva Schaffer, but it was Ian McShane that made the movie extra special for Taccone.

Jorma – who plays Samberg’s nerdy half-brother in Hot Rod – says some of his favorite scenes to shoot for the comedy were with his on-screen dad, McShane, with whom he shared a close and “scentual” connection.

Jorma explains, “There’s one scene where I had to lay on Ian for a few minutes and I loved it because he seriously smells incredible. It was amazing just catching a whiff of McShane’s British musk – I didn’t want to let go!”

But when the fragrant Deadwood actor wasn’t around, Taccone found joy in his other co-stars.

He adds, “It was nice making this movie with Andy and Akiva, because we’ve been friends since junior high school. We laughed and did crazy stuff the entire time. It was like being at summer camp!”

Hot Rod busts into theaters this Friday (Aug. 3).
