one of the things when I had tweeted earlier that you were coming on the podcast and that I was going to be chatting with you. I got so many questions, but a lot of them wanted to know about your, like, your kind of relationship with the players during the game, because we know that some of these I know on production some of these challenges last hours and hours and hours and obviously are edited down. How much are you? Kind of like hanging out and chatting with them versus hanging out with the crew and staying, keeping it separate? No, it's It's 100% separate, always with the crew. So yeah, it's It's an interesting dynamic because I'm kind of the liaison between the crew and the cast. So and I'm also part of both. You know, I'm a cast, but I'm kind of crew. It's it's interesting. So, um, but I I always hang with the crew. Have you become I mean, I assume you've also formed friendships with the crew and with the cast through the years because you have spent so much time together. Yeah, for sure. I mean, the crew is one big, dysfunctional family now, but we function pretty good, like we're all after this common same common goal and everybody gets along great and there's no idiots on the crew like everybody solid because it's crazy. But you're living together for a couple of months, you know, and I'm just a couple of months and and the people that don't really fit in through the crew get weeded out real fast.

Um, have you ever when you were introduced to the challenges before, Obviously, I assume before the cast and kind of get explained to what's happening? Are you ever like I want to try this? Like, aren't you eager to try it? I feel like it's got to be so hard not to want to do that, especially with your career path. I mean, as it is, you like to take risks and stuff. Yeah, it depends like some of them, you know, I I love I would really like to try, and then some of them I'm like I'm cool, you know, whatever. Like some of the big rigs, the big rig stuff. I was like, Dude, that that looks like a party. I want to try that and a couple of things like there's a couple of shots that we did for the Paramount Plus adds standing on top of a big rig and I didn't use any hardness or anything. I just stood on top of the rig and we got going to speed, and I just started having to go through lines on top of a big rig that with no harness, it was awesome. That's insane. I'm shocking what you do that. That's amazing voice, you know, it's like it's like we're doing this. Uh, they were like we have harnesses and they had a stunt guy there. Like, if I were to get kind of weird and we're not turning corners, we're just going straight. Yeah, I mean, you'd really have to mess up to crash off of a big rig that's just
