Regina King and Zazie Beetz might play sworn enemies in their new Netflix film The Harder They Fall, but rest assured they make one hell of a team, IRL.

Ahead of the release of their new Western film, which is directed by Jeymes Samuel and produced by Jay-Z, the actors joined ELLE UK for a game of Knowing Me Knowing You so we could find out just how much they know about their co-stars.  

While the pair correctly guessed that Idris Elba DJ'd at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's nuptials in 2018, King revealed that it was up to her she would play something 'raunchy' at a royal wedding to get the Windsors up and dancing.

'I don't know, maybe something like doing "Da Butt" (by E.U.) so I could see some of the royal family dropping it and doing "Da Butt",' she joked when quizzed on what she'd play.

On meeting their new film's producer Jay-Z for the first time it sounds like King and Beetz had a similar experience.

After Beetz said she had a dance with the musician/producer at the Oscars, King explained that she met the rapper at a mutual friend's wedding years ago. 'I did a little shoulder shimmy. So the next time he saw him he went like this...' she noted, before mimicking Jay-Z's shoulder moves.

'Jay-Z likes to dance,' she added before her and King imitated the father-of-three's subtle yet oh so smooth moves.

The Harder They Fall sees Nat Love (played by Jonathan Majors) team up with his former gang, which includes the likes of Stagecoach Mary (Beetz), Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and Jim Beckwourth (R.J. Cyler) to seek vengeance on his enemy Rufus Buck (Elba), who killed his parents. 

Unfortunately for Love, Buck also has his own loyal team of outlaws including Trudy Smith (King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and let’s just say they’re not going down without a fight.

From guessing who played a vampire in Twilight, to who wanted to be a dentist as a child, the Oscar winner and Batman star are certainly forces to be reckoned with when grilled on their fellow The Harder They Fall actors.
