“We met preparing for our prey and that was literally 13 years ago. We are brothers because we were contractually obligated to live this life. But we became brothers because these guys bonded on screen over whiskey. Paul and I didn’t connect off-screen over the whiskey. So it’s really powerful, man, that this is what we end up doing with our lives together.”
