 In my lap came 'A Couple of D***s,' the original title for Cop Out, which sounds really homoerotic so I didn't really take a look until I (received a) call from Warner Brothers asking me if I read it. I thought they wanted me to re-write it or be in it and they wanted me to direct... I read it and thought, 'I could handle this.' It's like Lethal Weapon with 60 per cent less action; it's just Clerks (his 1994 comedy) with cops.

 The reason I really connected to the script was my father, who passed away a few years ago, would take me out of school in the afternoon on a Wednesday to see all those kinds of movies like 48 Hours, Die Hard, The Last Boy Scout, Running Scared. So this would be the movie where my father would think, 'Oh, you do make movies for a living,' because my other stuff he'd be like, 'Does it count as a movie if all you talk about is Star Wars and other movies?'
