When you get the call that you're wanted for a role on Inside Amy Schumer, you might think it's some kind of prank. Which is just want happened to Million Dollar Listing New York agent Ryan Serhant, who made a cameo on Amy Schumer's Comedy Central series earlier this season.
"It was awesome. It was hilarious. I was totally surprised when they reached out," Ryan told The Daily Dish. "I was like, 'Are you sure? Am I right one? Are you supposed to call Ryan Reynolds? He's the funny one.' So it was awesome. Listen, I came to New York to [act], so the same thing [happened] when the guys were castingWhile We're Young with Ben Stiller and they said, 'Hey, Noah Baumbach and Ben Stiller want you to be in their movie.' It's the same like, what the hell is happening, what is my life?"
From the moment Ryan got on set to work with Amy, the experience surpassed any type of expectations he ever could have had. "She comes in like a tornado. I remember we rehearsed everything, and then she comes in and she loves her crew to death and she's very, very, very funny. And she made for a very relaxed set, which is really what I remember the most. We shot that a while ago and she was just very, very, very cool."
While much of Ryan's time is focused on selling real estate, he credits "effective time management" for allowing him to also pursue an acting career. But, sadly, he doesn't really have enough time to do more of it, even though he has fielded some interesting offers.
"[There are] some [offers] that would have been awesome to do, but they are just so far away," he said. "It's so hard for me because my true love and passion is real estate in New York and now I have travel built in just because I have teams in Miami, Los Angeles, the Hamptons, Brooklyn on a bad traffic day — that's a trip. So it's hard for me to go to Georgia and do something like that. But I'm sure you will see me again. I want to be a real estate agent on that show Billions. Can you start a petition or something? Just like do a call to action. I will do anything."
Hey, Billions casting directors: If you need some proof Ryan is a great actor, Ben Still have provided a great testimonial. Plus you can check out how great he looks in a suit, below.
