Henry Cavill as the ‘hammer’ in Mission: Impossible – Fallout
Super hit franchise, the Mission Impossible series have added another chapter to their fast paced, action-packed daredevilry with actor, Henry Cavill! The actor plays the role of a CIA agent out to get Ethan Hunt in the sixth installment, Mission: Impossible – Fallout.
Commenting on the same, producer McQuarrie says, “He’s something of a wild card in our story, there’s a great deal of friction between him and Ethan, which comes to a boil over the course of the movie.”
Tom Cruise believed Henry was a wonderful addition to the star cast. He said, “He is very powerful; he’s athletic, charismatic and holds the screen. People will see that he is not pulling any punches. McQ wrote a unique role for him; he is just a great antagonist.”
Henry Cavill, for his character, ‘Hammer’ was required to brave unfavorable weather conditions in the blistering cold! According to McQuarrie, “He had the utterly thankless job of being in every freezing-cold, horrible, punishing environment imaginable with very little protective clothing. From being in an open helicopter traveling at 100 miles an hour 7,000 feet over a glacier in the dead of New Zealand winter to hanging off a 2,000-foot cliff in Norway. He was always positive, always diving in headfirst. Henry is an absolute gentleman and a fantastic actor. He was a joy to work with and had a great sense of humor.”
Well, it would be interesting to watch Man of Steel meet Ethan Hunt!
