“Very hard. That was probably the hardest part about the decision. I really formed a close bond with Woods, Swiss, and Breeze over the pandemic. The backstory is so funny because they all wanted to start producing more content since the pandemic started. They were like, ‘We want to start playing Uno, we need a fourth guy.’ I didn’t know this, but when I did the first episode, I was kind of on trial. That was my audition.” Cole said.
