Bautista and Notaro may share scenes together, but that's only the result of post-production movie magic.

Tig Notaro saved the day on Netflix and Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead” when the actress signed on to be digitally inserted in post-production to replace Chris D’Elia.

But curiously, adding Notaro after the fact meant the comedian had to perform in a vacuum (specifically in front of a green screen) and without the company of her fellow actors.

That remains a weird notion for one of the film’s most adored stars, Dave Bautista, who in the film technically shares scenes with Notaro, but as he explained to Vulture has alas never met his co-star.

“What really bothers me, when I watch this film — it bothers me that I don’t know Tig.

I want to meet her, and I want to hug her and tell her how amazing she was in the film.

I’ve been able to do that with all my other co-stars, and I haven’t been able to do it with Tig because I haven’t met her yet. »

When we consider the implications of this work, the old sayings 'you are what you eat' and 'gut feelings' take on new meaning.".
