Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje who plays Killer Croc in Suicide Squad, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter on the fun the cast of the film would have on the Toronto set, such as playing ping-pong, basketball, rapping and much more as a way to create a family type environment by director David Aye and Will Smith (Deadshot).
“When we got to the film, we were already a squad,” Akinnuoye-Agbaje tells THR of the Warner Bros. project based on the DC Comics property. “We partied together, we ate together, we worked out together. What you’ll see in the movie, the relationships are very organic, and that’s David’s process. He wanted a real team of people that he handpicked to get along. It brought us together as a unit.”
“It was a real Disneyland,” he says of the room, located in the parking lot in between trailers on the Pinewood Studios lot in Toronto. “If you’re going to do those type of movies, he’s the guy you want to do them with. And that’s the way to do it.”
Anything scandalous ever happen in said rec room? “There are some things I can’t say,” he laughs, before revealing what he could. “There were a lot of birthdays because there are a lot of Leos in the cast, so we had a lot of parties. But we’d watch football games, boxing fights and play music.”
And even the Fresh Prince made a cameo. “There was a DJ set where Will started rapping. He was the one rallying the troops.”
