Producer/director Randall Emmett is gushing over the intense passion that his film’s stars Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly have for each other. He says their chemistry is ‘second to none.’
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly have movie producer Randall Emmett to thank for playing accidental cupid in their red hot romance. He cast them opposite each other in his directorial debut Midnight in the Switchgrass, and the pair has become one of the sexiest new couples of 2020. Randall, 49, says that when he and fiancee Lala Kent, 30, go out to dinner with Megan and MGK — real name Colson Baker — half the time the lovebirds don’t even realize anyone else exists outside of their own romantic world.
“Let me tell you the joke I make about our double dates, and they know I say this to their face: Going on a double date with Megan and Colson, it’s like an individual date and a double date,” Randall told Entertainment Tonight in an Aug. 6 interview. “The first half is very ‘double date.’ Everybody is conversing, we’re having fun, we’re laughing. The second half, they don’t even know our name. They’re just glued to each other!”
Randall explained that, “They’re very passionate about one another and very happy, and I mean, it’s really sweet to see that I had a little hand in that,” he explained. “The chemistry was second to none, but I just thought, I’m a great director! I didn’t know there were these undertones and all that, and now, we spend a lot of time with them since they’ve been together and it’s really sweet and beautiful, and I’m really happy for both of them.”
When Megan, 34, and Colson, 30, chose to do their first interview as a couple, they did it on Randall and Lala’s podcast Give Them Lala…and Randall on July 22. The Transformers star recalled how when she found out Colson would be her co-star, she knew they would had some kind of future together.
Megan revealed, “I was like, ‘Who is going to play this role?’ And he (Randall) was like, ‘Oh, we just got Machine Gun Kelly,’ and immediately, I was like, ‘Uh oh.’ Because I knew – I could feel that some wild s**t was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn’t yet sure what. I just felt it like, deep in my soul – that something was going to come from that.”
The pair was so smi
