He said: “I’ve always been a fan of Mickey’s. I’m working with Benecio (Del Toro) right now and we talked about how, when we were growing up, Mickey was someone you always looked up to and I’ve known him forever…

“Then finally when (director) Robert (Rodriguez) said, ‘Do you want to do this?’… I was like, ‘Of course I’ll do it and do I have any scenes with Mickey?’ and he said, ‘Absolutely’.”

“I got to the set… and I was like, ‘Where’s Mick?’ and Rodriguez is like, ‘No, he finished his stuff like a month ago…’ If you see the movie, I worked with Mickey the entire film, but I never saw Mickey,” said Josh.
