During a Q&A for The Los Angeles Times' The Envelope Screening Series, in association with EPIX, Leo said, "You know where Jake really learned to be such a good detective? When he was 7 years old, he was on Homicide and I was playing the homicide detective!"

"I was watching her like a hawk," Gyllenhaal laughs. "And everything that Loki is is based on all the work I watched Melissa do in the three days I worked with her when I was 7 years old."
