And even though I was doing it, it was just so different because he brought out my energy. Correct. So it is something different. Only a good actor can do that in a way. So yeah, I mean, we spoke, we chatted a lot. And it's a very, I wouldn't say, similar story, but we both have done the similar things. And I think being him is amazing. He's a great human being.
