The others heard it too but Joe insisted on continuing with the scene. He refused to go to seek medical help insisting that they continue with the scene. He explained that his arm would be immovable so they should better shoot the scene until the injury sat in.
Gregory Jacobs said while speaking at the European premiere of the film (via Xpose) at the Vue cinema in London's Leicester Square on Tuesday night that Joe got injured, pretty bad. One of the women he was working with sort of moved the wrong way and he hurt his arm. But he powered through, he's a great athlete. He got back on the horse.
Joe elaborated that they had rehearsed and rehearsed and rehearsed but at the spur of the moment when his dance partner just made an unrehearsed move which resulted in an injury in his bicep. He added that he knew his arm was not gonna move the next day so he thought they should get it over with while it could.
It was also noted that when Joe got his injury, the rest of his co-stars checked up on him immediately. Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Kevin Nash and Adam Rodriguez were all by his side as soon as they realized that he had sustained the injury.
Jacobs said that the camaraderie between the men is very much real behind the scenes as well as on-screen which contributes to it appearing very real on-screen. The movie is on the format of a road trip which explores the men to men to women relationship. For that the chemistry between the stars is really great.
