Entourage star: Ronda Rousey warned she could break my ribs
Entourage star Jerry Ferrara was on Thursday's SI Now and talked about filming with MMA fighter Rounda Rousey.
At one point in the movie, Ferrara and Rousey's characters fight in the ring. Fighting Ronda Rousey seems like a daunting task even when it's staged, so while Ferrara said he felt safe on set, he also realizes stunt filming doesn't always go smoothly.
Ferrara explained how he does a lot of his own stunts in the movie, but there was one move when it was decided it was probably for the best that he sit that one out.
"There is a moment when Ronda flips me onto my back," he said. "And she actually suggested, she was like 'Why don't you the let the double do that? Because I've broken guy's ribs before and they're a lot bigger than you' ... In my mind I see my double has coffee and stuff and I was like 'You give me that coffee!' And we switched and tagged out."
Entourage hits theaters on June 5 and contains cameos from other athletes like Rob Gronkowski, Tom Brady and Russell Wilson.
