Among the biggest challenges the actor encountered when he was selected for the role is the fact that he had to change his diet.

For several years, Murphy was a vegetarian, but in order to gain more muscle mass, he was forced to re-incorporate meat into his menu. Likewise, he had to follow a daily exercise routine in the gym and, on the other hand, his tone of voice was also affected. This is because the Shelbys are a family group that commands respect and a little fear, so his way of speaking was fundamental and, according to what he said in several interviews, this was necessary to sound more intimidating.
