He was like this constantly. He went out of his way to make everyone feel comfortable and to feel welcome. That’s an energy you have to portray.”

Bardem, a local of Spain, notes how he was additionally challenged in “delivering Aaron Sorkin’s dialogue” and actually getting comfy with it as a local Spanish speaker. Oh, and he additionally needed to carry out musical numbers with out prior expertise—all whereas concurrently capturing the upcoming live-action characteristic movie, The Little Mermaid.

“Aaron Sorkin’s language and writing have always been very complex,” he shares. “And I also found the musical aspect to be challenging as this was the first time I was approached to do that. I had to deliver four songs without being a singer and I didn’t have much time to prepare.”

Hopefully, that will happen.”

Being the Ricardos is at present obtainable to stream by way of Amazon Prime.
