The pair actually met through James Corden, who got to know the The Miramax studios founder while he was filming 'One Chance', a movie based on the tale of Britian's Got Talent winner Paul Potts. 

A source told The Sun: “Harvey thought Jack was hilarious. He’s spent a lot of time in England over the years, so he gets our sense of humour. He reckons Jack has got the whole package - looks, wit and acting ability.
