“We were going through the scenes and they’re like, ‘We just want to see how you guys are going to be together, how you’re gonna play, so could you wrestle or something? Could you wrestle around?’ ” Duque, who added that the film made for his first movie role, told Fallon. “E eu sou como, 'OK, tudo bem. If that’s gonna get me this job I’m gonna wrestle.’ ”
“I got in there, e eu, gostar, crouched down and the first thing that happened was my pants split open,” Duque, 38, told Fallon, making both the 48-year-old talk show host and his audience laugh.
“I tell you, I have the best things happen to me,” ele adicionou. “I tell you, God has a sense of humor, that is the one thing I can confirm, and I’m like — I’m one of his favorites.”
“Oh, we saw it,” Duke explained to Fallon when asked “how he knew” that his pants had ripped open.
Despite the embarrassing detail of his final audition, Duke implied during his Show de hoje à noite appearance that the gaffe may have helped him win the role of M’Baku in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise.
“I’ve always adopted this thing when it comes to auditions, Eu era como, 'Você sabe o que? I don’t have to book the job, I just have to win the room. If I know I win the room, they’ll invite me back someday,’ ” Duke told Fallon. “So I always go in places and I say, ‘I need to win the room,’ and when I split my pants I was like, ‘I’m winning.’ ”
“No one else did this!” Duke added. “eu disse, pelo menos, if I don’t get this job, and I said that to them right then and there, ‘You guys are going to have to buy me new pants.’ ”
