Looking back Jake Thomas should’ve said “Nope!”To work with one Lizzie McGuire co-star.
The ex-star of Disney Channel revealed that he was able to connect with the chimp attacks scene from Jordan Peele‘s newest Universal Pictures film Nope. Why? He did so because he was also a child star and worked with a chimpanzee.
“I’m not gonna give anything away,”He stated this in a TikTokStarting Aug. 8 “but there’s a side story in the movie that deals with this chimpanzee that stars in a TV sitcom, that goes berserk, and it kills a bunch of its castmates. And the entire time I was watching it, I couldn’t stop thinking of a memory from long ago: Remember Fredo? Yeah, we had [the chimp] on for like five-something episodes.”
Jake recalled that Jake was warned by the trainers of animals on the set for the sitcom. “If the chimp goes a little out of control, step away. We’ll take care of it. He can kill you if you’re not careful.”
