    The scene in question featured Jon's character Roy Tillman in a hot tub where he shows his bare butt, while also exposing himself as an intimidation tactic for two FBI agents.

    Jon joked about the alleged rider (a document that adds conditions/details to a contract) he thought he put in place for any full-frontal nude scenes he shoots.

    “I thought I had a rider in my contract [that said] naked’s fine, cold naked is not great. I’m more of a warm naked [guy],” Jon said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday.

    They filmed in Alberta, Canada which Jon revealed was "freezing cold." And apparently, "freezing" in America doesn't compare to "freezing" in Canada.

    Now, as far as what the cast and crew actually saw at that moment when they were filming the scene, well, that's a different story. They saw flesh...and a little something extra.

    “The glory of God’s creation," Jon added. "Well, that and a flesh-colored sock which is cinched around. It’s not pleasant. None of it’s pleasant. They call it a cock sock."

    “If there is, I did not use one," Jon said about whether or not there was a handler on set. "I was hands on for that…[it’s cinched on] tight enough, tight enough so it’s not going anywhere.”

    And Jimmy couldn't let Jon go without asking about those nipple rings his character was wearing either. Jon revealed he was also wearing prosthetic nipples.

    “They were real nipple rings pierced through fake nipples. Magic doesn’t happen by itself, Jimmy."
