"I know some people think me and John are messing around all the time, but we can be serious. I'd make some authority for myself. I wouldn't just be a poser, I'd want to get stuff done. I'd full on be out there and make all the decisions, I wouldn't just be signing off on stuff."

The pair are fresh from a trip to Los Angeles where they were catching up with pal Tara Reid and filmed a cameo appearance for Sharknado 3.
