And I, I kind of melded that with sort of Arabic gibberish don't things that I had heard growing up to. Do you have your parents or grandparents who spoke? Yeah, they spoke Arabic and we never learned it nine regret that, but anyway, had certain sounds and things in my head, and I kinda brought these two things together and it worked. It worked for them so and was really kinda cool was because I was writing my own lines. I, I was, I patted my part sure, you know, because they, they couldn't really. Once I started talking, they couldn't stop me. You know, it's like, no, you're not saying the right word, right? So I would just like right book their town. Three lines more than off the moment. You begin speaking. Exactly. So additioning for Bill. Is he giving notes is saying, try this, try that? What was that? Just the audition. So he was very supportive and I think. It's the one time I can't remember. Maybe this happened. Once again in forty odd years where he said in the room, you know, after the second or third call back. I want you to do this part that never never happens in the room. You have to get it to thirty hot. Don't ever to them. Yeah, not in the room because we have to negotiate with them. Exactly. You can't say this is your, but he was an actor, right? So he just said, oh, stop fucking around. We wanted to do this and I was like, what? Yeah, I a few callback. You said I maybe a couple. Yeah. And each time you would see other potential actors. Sure. Long. I knew because we're doing plays together. I mean, it was a group of us. Sure. And. So he says the job is yours. You can't believe it was really, really amazing. And then on the I, I actually I had done a movie before that, but I was completely out of it. Thanks to count. Thank goodness.

Either as director or as a co star on, I guess your characters. Just any piece of that experience that you would care to share would be great working on that movie? Yeah, just with him specifically.
