Many of the Breakout Kings cast members and guest stars actually perform their own stunts. In this episode, Serinda Swan (Erica Reed) and her stunt double shared danger duties when chasing down fugitive Max Morris (Michael Filipowich).
In the scene, Max tries to make a quick getaway in a pick-up truck, but Erica spots him and chases him down. The stunt double carried out the dangerous leap onto the moving truck, but Serinda took care of knocking out the back window with a tire iron herself, as well as the bit where she climbed inside and beat Max up
Serinda actually cut her hand on the glass filming the scene, but handled it like a champ.
According to the crew, Domenick Lombardozzi (Ray Zancanelli) has a habit of getting hung up on words or phrases he finds entertaining. In the case of this episode, the phrase in question was the character named Kurt Peebles.
Apparently, Dom got hung up on the PEEBLES bit, deciding to pronounce it PEBBLES (like the tiny rocks) instead. Like any good, silly joke, it had the crew in stitches, and since Jimmi Simpson (Lloyd Lowery) couldn't stop laughing, it took 10 takes for them to get the scene right.
Jimmi Simpson is rarely seen without his faithful doggy companion, Mouse. Crew members would sometimes have trouble finding Mouse when stopping in to check on the pooch, as he likes to play "Hide and Sleep." Some of his favorite napping spots are in showers, cabinets, and empty garbage cans.
Beware of Mouse!
