The actress explained that the late actor goes into unchartered acting territory in the film.

“I think Jim would say he was nervous because he was playing a role unlike any other role he played before and a role in which he gets the girl and he was sort of uncomfortable with that,” the Emmy nominee told Access. “He plays a really earnest, mild mannered, dear person. Frankly, very close to what he is [and] he was… I think he was a little bit insecure about it, but he did the most amazing job.”
