He added that the role made him contemplate what he was really doing with his life.

“I’ve never been on a set where I went home at night and just thought, ‘What am I doing? I’ve made the worst f***ing decision of my life. I don’t ever want to be an actor again.’ Like, I was sure that this was just wrong, and it almost made me quit. It was horrible.”

Previously, Jeffrey opened up about the role in 2012 with Entertainment Weekly, admitting he initially took the part to “pay my bills.”

“I knew I’d play some guy saying some stuff. Then I got a call saying I needed to go in for a prosthetic fitting,” he said. “I remember them dripping goop on my face, and I had straws sticking out of my nose. I couldn’t eat lunch. I was claustrophobic. I’d go home in tears.”
