Jerry O’Connell Reveals ‘Stand By Me ‘full circle moment’

Monday on “The Talk” Jerry O’Connell shares a full circle moment from his film “Stand By Me” when director Rob Reiner stopped a fight scene that O’Connell was in with no lines. “He came up to me and went, ‘What are you doing in the scene?’ And I went, ‘Nothing, I don’t have any lines.’” He adds, then Reiner responded, “Everyone is in the scene. You have to listen. You’re as important as people saying the lines,’ and literally, in my 11-year-old head, a light bulb went off. Oh, an actor is always part of the scene.” Cut to 30 years later, O’Connell shares how he was directing a scene of “Andi Mack” where one of the actresses wasn’t paying attention during a scene where she had no lines. “A thunderbolt hit me and I said [to her], ‘You’re as much a part of the scene as they are’…and I saw a light bulb go off in her head and I started shaking...I had a full circle moment. It’s amazing when these things happen.”
