    Anthony Mackie found shooting 'Synchronic' in Louisiana to be a bittersweet experience

    The 42-year-old actor stars alongside Jamie Dornan in the sci-fi horror film, but he's jokingly described filming the movie in his home state as "the worst experience you could ever have"


    He explained on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon': "When I'm shooting a movie in New Orleans, I'm the rich cousin, and I'm the youngest cousin, so when my cousins pull up they pull up.

    "So we're shooting one night on the river and my cousin pull up with his barbecue grill on the back of his truck fully going. And you know, in New Orleans, you can't tell people, ‘Aye bro, you gotta go, I'm working.' They're like, ‘Nah, go'head and work. I'll be here when you done.'

    "Next thing you know, he's selling plates to the crew! Dude, I'm at work. He's like, ‘I'm at work too, bro, go'head!'"

    Anthony also discussed the origins of his friendship with fellow 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' star Sebastian Stan.

    The Hollywood duo both appeared in the 2014 Marvel movie and they've remained close friends ever since.

    Anthony - who played Falcon in the money-spinning film franchise - recalled: "When we were shooting 'Winter Soldier', he had this awful wig on and literally in the middle of scenes they would have to cut because the wig would like fall off or fall down.

    "So I would make fun of his wig and he would make fun of my calves because that's my bone of contention like growing my calves, you know. So once I realised I can give him junk and he give me junk, and we were cool, it was great."
