Jake Johnson said he decided to come on board Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy as it was an action-adventure film and featured Tom Cruise.

In a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter, the 39- year-old actor said he was not really aware of the popular horror-adventure film series while growing up. “There wasn’t even a script at the time. I just loved the idea of being in an action-adventure with Tom Cruise. I felt like I was like 10 and I had an awesome coach. It was honestly the connection with Tom that made it work for me. Everything I did in the action is all with Tom, and I was never doing something alone, I never jumped off a building when Tom wasn’t on set,” he said.

Johnson said Cruise “guided” him throughout the shoot.
