"That's why I have my son in it," he said. "I know he'll be nimble on the feet and light on the feet."

Conor, who made his film debut in the Road House remake, admitted to being a big fan of the original 1989 Road House movie and its star, the late Patrick Swayze—a dancer himself who showcased his smooth moves in Dirty Dancing. In the new film, Jake Gyllenhaal takes on the role of Dalton and the boxer thinks they couldn't have found a better successor to Patrick in the Brokeback Mountain alum, who previously showcased his own fighting moves in the 2015 film Southpaw.
