“When you audition for Marvel they’re so secretive about all of the scripts and everything. So the first audition that I did, didn’t know the character name, didn’t know the project, it was just two scenes from Good Will Hunting,” he revealed.

“Which was one of my favorite movies, which was good and bad because I knew all of the scenes, I knew the characters but I also knew exactly the way that the lines were delivered. I sent in two scenes of me doing Good Will Hunting, but me doing Matt Damon from Good Will Hunting with like the full Bostonian accent,” he continued.

Simu added that he performed the scene where Matt and Minnie Driver talking by the race track.

Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings is set to heat theaters on September 3.
