Turns out that when it was time for Shep Rose to make his big-screen debut, he took the part of an ambulance driver very seriously. Well, at least he took joking about how serious he took it all rather seriously.
Shep, along with his Southern Charm pal Craig Conover, are slated to make cameos in the upcoming Bruce Willis flick Reprisal. "I mean I actually spent time with an ambulance driver for a year just to get into the role," he told The Daily Dish with a laugh. "I'm just kidding. Deep cover. I'm a really method actor. Craig's never been a cop."
The fellas shot the flick back in August in Cincinnati and Shep shed some more light on the once-in-a-lifetime experience. "Craig plays a cop and I play an ambulance driver. We met this producer [who is] a fan of the show, Randall Emmett, and he was like 'Y'all want to be in this movie.' Of course, we put it on social media. Maybe that'll get some interest in the movie. He was really funny; the whole experience was goddamn funny as hell. And I'm really happy that I did it."
Shep also talked about the film a bit more and about that time he fell on his face in front of Andy Cohen on The Daily Dish podcast.
