Ruben Fleischer thinks Tom Holland is the most dynamic actor in Hollywood
In a Zoom interview with PTI from Los Angeles, Fleischer described Holland as a “dynamic” actor who brought to life the role of Nathan Drake in the film, which is based on the PlayStation video game series of the same name by Naughty Dog.
Ruben said, “His image of Spider-Man never became a roadblock for me. He was involved before I was with the project, so when I read it, I read it with him in mind. I was just really excited because he is one of the most dynamic actors working today. He can do anything– comedy, action or drama”. He also said, “When I read the script, he was the only person I imagined in that role. While we have the video game characters reference point, I love this younger version of Nathan Drake that Tom has offered the world”.
The filmmaker also said that it was crucial Holland and the 50-year-old ‘Ted’ star have sizzling chemistry as their characters take on the heist job and navigate their ways of working together. He said, “I love their dynamics in the movie. Mark and Tom play off each other so well. They are both effortlessly funny. The banter between them is my favourite aspect of the movie. They are both just great comedians. You think of them as these big movie stars who have done these big action movies, but it needs to be recognized that Mark has been in some of the finest movies of all time”.
“Whether it is ‘The Other Guys’, ‘Ted’, every role he brings humour to, even ‘The Departed’ with Martin Scorsese, he makes me laugh really hard. We also had the video game to refer to, where Nate and Sully have this classic banter, so there was a template for the relationship”, he added.
