George chose Daniel to play the younger version of JR Moehringer, the author of the 2005 memoir The Tender Bar is based on.

George stepped into the action, playfully grabbing Ranieri, who made a memorable appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! back in december.

The story follows the author through his early years in New York City as he searches for his father while getting close to his uncle and a group of locals at a nearby bar.

Development of The Tender Bar began in 2013 with Hidden Figures director Theodore Melfi set to helm the film before leaving the project.
