Speaking to Variety, Jake opened up about what he brought to his role in the film.

“[My character] Gabe is a bit of an awkward fellow, but he doesn’t care,” he shares. “He still tries to be himself and crack jokes, and that’s a lot like me. When I talk to people, I don’t tend to care what people think of me. I like to make people feel comfortable and Gabe likes to do the same.”

Jake adds, “In the chicken nugget scene, he just wants Kayla to be comfortable. He’s very considerate, like Kayla, and recognized that Kayla is shy, nervous and as awkward as he is.
