Joe Keery worked closely with Waititi filming his new movie Free Guy.

Star of Free Guy, Joe Keery talks to ZM’s Fletch, Vaughn and Megan. Video / ZMStranger Things star Joe Keery has shared what it was like working with Taika Waititi.
The actor stars alongside the Mori filmmaker in the movie Free Guy.
Now playing in cinemas, Free Guy follows Guy (Ryan Reynolds) who discovers he’s a background character in an open world video game.
Keery plays Keys, and Killing Eve star Jodie Comer plays Milly, two coders who insert a buggy code into the game.
Waititi plays Antoine, the video game’s publisher.
Speaking on radio station ZM, Keery gushed about working with Waititi: “Oh my gosh, that handsome guy is amazing. He’s so, so talented. Every day I show up on set and be like, ‘are you sure I’m supposed to be doing all of these scenes’ because he’s amazing.
“That guy is not afraid really of anything, he has no fear on set and he’s down to try anything and every single take is different. You know, it’s really just like a learning experience about being confident on set and, yeah, I felt like I learned so much and picked up so much from him.”
The ZM hosts joked his answer was the perfect ploy to get him cast in Waititi’s next big project.
He added: “You guys know him, right?”
Known for his luscious locks, which he chopped off to the disappointment of his fans, Keery joked that he and Waititi bonded over their hair on set.
“We’d just sit across from each other in stools and pretty much just touch each other’s hair for a couple of hours just to get into character,” Keery says.
“I didn’t really want to do that but he was just sort of insistent,” he added.
