The actor described the response to the film as humbling, in an interview he said, “I think I’m still getting used to it, because a lot of times it’s just my friends who are like, ‘Oh, man, we saw your movie. That was great. That was fun. But to see fans of Andy… responding to this film… and then more particularly, to, you know, the character that I played, is kind of a surreal."
