The set of Billy Bob Thornton’s Daddy and Them (2001) was a learning experience. First, never eat food on film. The food is hot the first bite, the first bite only. Just move your fork around in the food like you’re contemplating a bite. Second, it’s harder to stay awake for a night shoot than you might think. Third, the cast and crew eat well on a Thornton movie. Choices at middle-of-the-night cast and crew feeding included grilled steaks and a smorgasbord of veggies.
Oh and, yes, we were supposed to look like blue collar workers.
