Since both Isaacs and Heche play FBI agents, they had to research and prepare to take on that kind of a role. Isaacs actually trained with the real FBI, while Heche…trained in a very different way. 

“I went and trained with the  FBI for months,” Isaacs said. “They give you a gun and you run around and look tough.” Heche added, “You know what I did? Paintball!”
