Jake Gyllenhaal and the director of the movie Southpaw, Antoine Fuqua, talked about working with Eminem and his music:
“It’s incredible to have Eminem’s music in the movie. I mean, it was motivating for me as a character, even in training. I was listening to his music, his older albums and pretty much every other song” says Jake Gyllenhaal.
“The script was written for Eminem…Eminem was gonna play Billy Hope…He was the odd man out for a while, he was the white rapper who came into the game with just fire.” says Antoine Fuqua
