Lovitz described his character as a "psycho cop" who is completely "unrecognizable" in the film. The actor had to do a scene where he has to intimidate Dwayne The Rock Johnson. Lovitz said the only way he could do that was if he tried to act "insane." When the actor asked Kelly what he should tell people the film is about, Kelly told him "tell them it's about the end of the world." Lovitz adds, "It's a bunch of stories and we see how they're all connected."
