Now You See Me 2 cast formed boy band

Posted on

NBC

Working on a movie, especially a franchise blockbuster, can often involve long, strenuous hours. Different actors respond to that in different ways; the Now You See Me 2 cast, for example, decided to create their own boy band.

Dave Franco told Seth Meyers on Thursday that he, Jesse Eisenberg, and Woody Harrelson combined to form Two Directions. They didn’t compose any music, but they did pose for several artful album covers. Cool By Northwest featured them hanging out on a couch, while the proposed cover for Objects in the Rearview, the “artsy” sophomore album, was made via a fish-bowl lens selfie. 

Although Two Directions recorded no actual songs, they certainly pretended they had. Franco said that their fictional backstory included at least one “sensitive love song” called “S–t on My Breath.”

“If there’s ever a night to say it, it’s the night Diarrhea Planet is here,” Meyers said. 

“I was gonna say, I feel like a collaboration is in the mix,” Franco said. “So yeah, that’s just an example of how weird things get on set.”
