The 60-year-old actor on working in Mission Impossible “It was very exciting,”
Blitzer tells ComicBook.com
“I didn’t even appreciate the scene until I actually saw the film, which was a year after we filmed it.”
When asked what it felt like to work with Tom Cruise, this was his answer.
For me, it was really exciting because I grew up watching Mission: Impossible when it was a TV show, and then it became a motion picture, and of course, I’ve been watching Tom Cruise for so many years. He’s a gentleman; he’s so nice, friendly, and welcoming. He’s a great actor, and he does all of these amazing stunts, and he really does them himself.”
The comments on his performance in the movie are positive likewise.
