“I think that within the first five pages, I wanted to do the movie and it was because of my character,” Alden recently told Collider. “It was really because of the opening monologue. Thereâ€™s like narration and Richard [LaGravenese, director] has a really great understanding and knowledge of film in general and I felt a lot of the older films that Iâ€™ve grown up with, I felt that Ethan was a character out of some of those older films.
He added, “I liked this kind of Jimmy Stewart like get out of here and fight for it. Thatâ€™s the kind of element to it and thatâ€™s definitely why I wanted to do it. I just had that thing where you feel good and you just get itâ€“you get who the guy is.”
