Talking about his "golf buddy" Don Cheadle, the actor seemed to be truly excited.
“Don, Don Cheadle,” he said. “I got Don, that’s my golf buddy. I didn’t realize it, but til we did this thing, I was like, ‘We’ve never worked together.’ We just kinda know each other, hang out and laugh… but we’d never worked together and we finally [got to work together].”

When asked about potential crossovers with other characters, the actor replied he couldn't say anything, but jokingly said that Captain Marvel 2 (The Marvels), Ant-Man 3 (Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantummania) and his series were all shooting at the same time in the same place, so... Who knows?
