On February 21st, the cast of Need For Speed sat down for a press conference in Los Angeles. Here are the highlights from the interviews with the supporting cast Rami Malek, Scott Mescudi (Kid Cudi) and Ramon Rodriguez.
Q: You guys have a great dynamic. How was it the first time you met on set?
Scott Mescudi: I had just arrived in Atlanta. I came into the [hotel] room and Rami [Malek] and Dominic [Cooper] are wrestling. I was like, “What did I just walk into?” For me, that moment let me know that this was going to be awesome. Some people you click with, sometimes it’s weird. And I just knew these guys were like me. The camaraderie is there. Even Dominic, who was the villain in the movie, we were all clicked up.
Rami Malek: We knew we were going to get along. We are all pretty much the same age group. We had so many things in common and wanted to make this the best thing we possibly could.
Ramon Rodriguez: Everybody went in with the right intentions. We just wanted to have a good time and make a good film. Rami and I spent a bunch of time together because all of our scenes are in The Beast and so we ended up hanging out a lot. And we had downtime in Atlanta and went kayaking and rafting together. We had a bromance.
