The 24-year-old actor said he was looking for a project with depth and risk and he found it in Lee Daniels' steamy new film, reported Femalefirst. "That was the first day of filming and Nicole just completely went for it.
"She was telling everyone, 'I'm bringing my A-game. What do you have?' I've never been so scared in my life, but that moment affirmed this movie was everything I set out to do," he said. The film is inspired from author Pete Dexter's novel with the same name.
