How did you prepare for your role as George Harrison in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story?
Justin Long: Paul Rudd and I holed up in his hotel room the day before poring over Beatles docs. We were so nervous - it was such a daunting task to play the Beatles (even though it was a comedic movie) - we wanted to respect how sacred they are. Jason Shwartzman called his room and told us he was freaking out. One of those guys said they had run into Jack Black the day before and asked him if he was nervous (to play Paul). Jack said, “no, dude, I got it. Just watch ‘Hard Days Night’!” We were so nervous Jack would come in and blow us all away. It was one of the most fun days of my life. I ran into George’s son Dani years later and he said really nice things about my performance. I almost cried. It was a special, surreal moment for me. Especially since Dani looks and sounds exactly like George, my favorite member of my favorite band #NameDroppyStory.
