Answer to TriviaThis one might stump you as Carter is not one of the main characters in Game Night. But don't let his quick appearance fool you, John Francis Daley wore many hats during the making of the black comedy.
He and writing partner Jonathan Goldstein directed Game Night in exchange for reworking the script. John Francis Daley also worked with Jason Bateman in Horrible Bosses where he also played a character named Carter. He aslo wrote the script to that film as well.
John Francis Daley got his start as a TV actor playing Sam Weir in Freaks and Geeks and Sweets in Bones before he left TV to focus on writing. After he and Jonathan hit it big with Spider-Man: Homecoming, I think it's safe to say that he made the right move.
Game Night is now available on DVD and Blu-ray.
