In the film, Gyllenhaal’s character, Joe Baylor, is confined to a room, specifically a chair. And according to an interview with USA Today, Gyllenhaal’s main co-stars have only worked with him on the phone.

“We put together an amazing cast in part because everyone is home and they weren’t working at the time. So when a call came in they would ring and look real. The performances were real. All I really had to do was listen and open my heart to the situation and try to get through it. I was constantly surprised and projected, in the best possible way.

The actor also compared this experience with his recent Broadway production, Sea wall / A life, where he is alone on stage. However, Gyllenhaal admitted that he “had used up his time alone as an actor” and wanted to be around people again.
