While talking about the game with Bateman and co, he explained how the player has to go through various stages. First one has to do the Wordle, then the Quordle, and then comes the Octordle. One has to gather their scores following the winner with the lowest score. It also has different versions as well. One of which is specifically made for Taylor Swift fans. The name of the game is Taylordle.

Airportle is also another version of the game for the lover of airports as well. When the actor first joined the group, he was sure he would fair well, but he was in for a rude awakening.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the same interview, the actor touched upon why he was not on Instagram, unlike his wife Jennifer Lopez.
