Audio Commentary, The Nigerian Job.
‘Now, one of my favorite acting stories… where we shot Gina’s side first. And Gina’s line is “I always knew you had it in you” when he says that he’s working on the other side of the law now. But when I was working with Gina, I said to her the subtext of that line is “I always knew that you were in love with me.” So I said “This is the subtext.” And then we did the scene, and she really nailed the performance. When we turned around on Tim, his first take was good, but it wasn’t great. So I whispered into Gina’s ear, “Don’t say the line; say the subtext.” So off-camera she said “I always knew you were in love with me.” There’s his reaction. And it’s so honest.”’
‘You can actually see him blush in the High Def.’
‘It was such an honest moment.’
