Jay Jay Warren: How did you prepare for your role in the movie “Rushed”?
A new movie is about to hit movie theaters on August 27th (and on streaming services like Apple / Amazon that same day) that you want to see! Siobhan Fallon Hogan & Robert Patrick star in this new movie thriller with Jake Weary and Jay Jay Warren. The movie is called “Rushed”. It was written by Siobhan Fallon Hogan who has been in a ton of movies and shows that you’ve already seen.
We are very fortunate to have Jay Jay Warren with us today on episode number 163 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast. Jay Jay plays “Jimmy” in the movie, a college freshman who is involved in a fraternity hazing incident. Since we have so many listeners that are college students and heavily involved in their fraternities and sororities, we wanted to talk more with Jay Jay to tell us about the upcoming movie.
We find out more about Jay Jay’s childhood and what made him want to become an actor, what it was like to work with Siobhan Fallon-Hogan on the set (you’ll recognize her from Seinfeld, SNL, The Golden Girls, 30 Rock, Men In Black, Forrest Gump, New In Town, Holes), how Jay Jay tried to absorb everything he could from this acting crew to help him reach his acting goals with Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgement Day), Jake Weary (Animal Kingdom, It Follows), Peri Gilpin (Frasier), and former NFL player Phil Villapiano, the craziest thing to happen on the set of “Rushed”, how he approached this role in the movie, what he thought when he first read the script, the huge support they got from the New Jersey community in making the movie, who is his role model as an actor, what types of roles he wants to tackle in the future, and the restaurants that he likes to go to in Los Angeles.
🔥 Special bonus! 🔥 Stay tuned to the end of the interview to hear directly from Siobhan Fallon-Hogan who wrote the screenplay to “Rushed” and also stars as Barbara O’Brien, Jimmy’s mother in the movie.
