Martin responded, “Yes. Selena Gomez!”

Steve then added, “I knew her as a singer, but it’s not like I have the radio on constantly. When I looked up her performing work, I realized she’s been around almost as long as I have and she’s done as many movies as I have. She denies it, but I see her credits. They’re, like, 40 things. That’s what I have. Also, we got to know a person who’s not only a different generation but different multi-generations away from us. It was a great experience to have her input, to have her awareness. Some of my favorite things in the show are when Marty and I are two, I’ll say, older guys, still kind of living in the vocabulary of the past, and she will correct us on camera.”

Martin then added about meeting her in person for the first time, “We talked on Zoom, but I met her in the makeup chair the first day of shooting.”

Steve continued, “Selena was extremely professional. What you hope for in your acting partner is at least that they’re on time. And she definitely was. Beside her talent, she had that going for her.”

Watch the trailer for the Hulu series, and be sure to check it out on August 31!
