The actor quote-retweeted a social media user’s criticism of Kevin and wrote, “EVERYBODY, please watch the entire episode. On top of understanding that this is just how we play it’s a really good one, I think.”

“The first question he asks me is, “drugs; do you do them?” In the parking lot I said he looked like a black-o-lantern in that suit. It’s just us,” he continued, adding two laughing emoji faces.

Ahead of the episode’s release, Kevin also shared a clip from their interview to his Instagram and said the conversation was an example of them “doing what [they] do best… being a–holes to each other.”

Kevin recently revealed why he turned down an offer to fly to space. Check it out
