While talking about gaining weight for the flick, James revealed that he wasn’t the first actor picked for the role.

“Night said he wanted me to get a bit bulkier, so I said, look, I can either get all skinny and muscly and I can do that real quick by losing some weight and doing reps and all that shit, or I can gain muscle but it’ll be more bulky than it’ll be ripped,” James expressed. “I didn’t have long. I came onto this show quite late in the day, I think Joaquin Phoenix was going to do it, but then I stepped in at the last minute because Joaquin pulled out.”
