EXCLUSIVE: The moment O'Shea Jackson Jnr discovers what his (and Ice Cube's) name means in Irish

"I don't know where my name came from. I think out of a hat."

We're pretty sure O'Shea Jackson Jnr got his name from O'Shea Jackson Snr, aka Ice Cube, but he had no idea that O'Shea is actually an Irish surname, and when we told him what it meant, well... let us just say he was overjoyed.

Aside from that, we actually travelled to Manhattan to chat to Jackson Jnr. and his Den Of Thieves co-star Pablo Schreiber to talk about their new action thriller, in which they co-star with 50 Cent and Gerard Butler (who we also interviewed, and you can check those chats out right here).

Schreiber plays an angry leprachaun in the hit TV series American Gods, and he asked what we thought of his accent, but we had to know who he based his character on. Once he told us though, it became all too obvious.

We also chatted about who was the best shot, and Jackson Jnr thinks that the only person in the cast who may or may not have actually shot someone in real life should be considered the best shot... cough cough...

Their next big projects - Skyscraper and Godzilla 2, respectively - and they gave us little snippets on what to expect from those two upcoming blockbusters.
