The sweater was funny because the script said ‘in a yoga sweatshirt’ and I don’t do yoga, I don’t have a yoga sweatshirt and I am known around set for having flamboyant sweaters that I’m frequently made fun of for. And I told the wardrobe people ‘I’d love to have a ridiculous flamboyant sweater’ and she was kinda like ‘nah’..not gonna go for it. But I don’t care, so I kinda sabotaged the process. Normally, what you do is you try on a bunch of clothes and take pictures, and I was just like ‘I’m sorry guys these are not gonna fit, they’re the wrong sizes’, so eventually they got backed into a corner and they had to let me wear it. So I had the sweater which helped me prepare for it [the role of misha]. I also sent emails to the admin like ‘I have this one favor to ask, can you make the character you know…kind of a douchebag.’ And they WOULDN’T do it! They wrote this nice mishaesque dorky guy, and I just tried to make him as douchey as possible..
