Director Clark Gregg has revealed that his Choke stars Anjelica Huston and Sam Rockwell made an instant connection.

Gregg told Digital Spy that he found it "bizarre" how quickly his two lead actors, who portray mother and son in the Chuck Palahniuk adaptation, became close.

He said: "They really did, it was bizarre. We had Sam and Anjelica and Brad William Henke in Los Angeles for a couple of days to read the script and it was one of those rare moments where they hit it off... they couldn't stop hugging. It was like they were mother and son.

"We brought in Ms. Huston and read her scenes quickly to cut her loose and she didn't want to leave. She wanted to stay and read the parts of all the other female sex addicts, hookers and everybody else just to stay and play with these two great actors."
