Dano appeared in James Mangold's 2010 action comedy about a fleeing spy who befriends a classic automobile restorer

In a new GQ interview, he said that watching Cruise's careful stunts for the film taught him

Dano directed "Wildlife" based on Cruise's capacity to consider how his job will affect every part of the production

I had never seen an actor take into account the audience and how the stunt and camera cut would affect them

On set, there are a number of people, a certain temperature, and a certain vibration, and I always believe that the subject lends itself to the form

Dano is by no means the first co-star of Cruise to show admiration for the dedication of the "Top Gun" lead to realistic stunts

Simon Pegg recently admitted that despite having appeared alongside Cruise in four "Mission: Impossible" films, he is still frightened by Cruise's risk-taking stunts

When something is authentic, you get a thrill from the thought that this person is actually riding a motorcycle off a cliff
