Sophie-Marie Prime for Rotten Tomatoes: How did you become involved with Wayne, and what made you want to be a part of it?Reese: Sean [Simmons] created this show. He grew up in Brockton, Massachusetts, which is sort of an “other side of the tracks” kind of place. He was inspired to write a spec pilot based on a little bit of his background and watching kids in Brockton who were real tough who would get beat up by groups of bigger kids, but not back down.Wernick: You know, scripts end up on our desks quite often. This one really jumped off the page. Sean had such a distinctive voice, and that s really what you look for. There s so much out there that kind of feels the same, and it feels predictable, and this one you just — it was a page turner. It was kind of a perfect mix of tones for us, and fit into “brand,” if we were to have one, Rhett and I. We jumped at the chance to be involved.(Photo by YouTube Premium)RT: How would you describe the tone of the show, in comparison to your other projects, like Deadpool and Zombieland?Wernick: I think it s very similar. It s in and out of different tones, and it s a delicate dance. But real life, it bounces in and out of different tones; sometimes you re laughing, and sometimes you re crying, and sometimes you re getting your ass kicked, and sometimes you re kicking ass. That s real life.Heart is a big thing with all our projects. I think it s something that we try and mine because if you can get people to feel — if you can ideally get people to cry in the same episode that they re laughing — it s a pretty great accomplishment. And we think Sean, as brilliant as he is, has kind of captured that in a way that s really difficult to capture.
