Tom also shared his passion for the cinema and the importance of making action-adventure blockbusters like M: I — Dead Reckoning. "I grew up seeing movies on the big screen," he explained. "That’s how I make them, and I like that experience -- it’s immersive. And to have that as a community and an industry, it’s important. I still go to the movies."

It's true. He still goes to the movies. Look how cute Tom looks, representing Harrison's 42-year legacy as Indiana Jones with M: I director Christopher McQuarrie.
In June, Tom told Entertainment Tonight he's not sure when he'll stop playing the unstoppable IMF agent Ethan Hunt. "You know, I can't tell you right now," he said. "I want to enjoy this moment right now, and it's Part One and Part 2. This is a big action-adventure movie for everyone and I look forward to seeing it."
