“We are former classmates we grew up together in the same small town, and we now live in New York City. And we are trying to make it back home for the holidays…we end up on the same flight which is grounded, and so basically that’s where our adventure begins. We try to make it home for Christmas across the country by any mode of transportation necessary.”

“Cows are just so docile by nature anyways and you know especially a cow that’s trained for being on set…you kind of forget about it like it was just in the train car and just chewing on hay the whole time.”

“She’s just one of the most grounded people I’ve met ever, let alone in the film industry, so it was nothing but an absolute blast and a treat to work with her. Actually, one of my first projects ever was called “Into the West”. I had a small part in it. We shot it like 15 years ago 16 years ago, and she was one of the leads in that, but our characters never really crossed. So I technically was in a project with her many many years ago so another full circle to this point.”
