While filming a scene, if the director is not satisfied with the actor’s performance, they would retake the shot with the suggested changes to the actors. During his conversation with Josh Horowitz on Happy, Sad, Confused, Harbour once revealed that was a strangely worst note he ever received from a director. Now, the Critics’ Choice Television Awards winner admitted directors would ask him to be a little funnier.

Explaining his comment, Harbour revealed whenever he would do a serious scene, he would be funny. However, the directors on the sets would not see that. Therefore, they would often ask the actor to be lighter. “But it’s always the worst note,” admitted Harbour. The reason was the director would always use the other shot. Yet, they would make him re-do the shot. Despite the Sleepless actor knowing the director would hate it, he would do it for them.
