HC: Was training a challenge?

JR: I love the idea of going to work and having to fight and learn a new skill set, whether it’s Muay Thai or Kali or Filipino Stick fighting. To me, it’s like college for life. You learn things from experts in the world, and maybe you continue it, maybe you hate it, but I looked at it as a great opportunity to kind of explore things I would never explore.

HC: Are there things you learned on “Mission Impossible” that you were able to bring with you to “Avengers” and “Bourne”?

JR: Absolutely. I got to work with all the same guys for all the movies. Robert Alonzo was my guy on “Mission”. I got to have pretty much all the same guys through all four of those action movies, from “Mission” to “Hansel and Gretel” to “Avengers” and then to “Bourne”. It ended up being almost two years of training with these guys. I just thought, “Wow, this is so great, and I just kept rolling into it. And then starting off doing the big action movie with Tom Cruise – he was such an amazing mentor to me, and just so supportive and being so excited that I was doing some of these things. He gave me some really great advice about how to treat your body, essentially, how to take care of yourself. I’d always been an athlete and physical, but he turned it into a whole  ‘nother thing about how seriously important it is that you don’t get injured. So he got me really headstrong about taking care of my body.

HC: Will we see you in a Hawkeye movie?

JR: I don’t know. I think there’s always a possibility of anything in the Marvel Universe. There’s gotta be a want from people to see something like that. I don’t know if there is. Maybe there is maybe there isn’t. But who knows? We’ll see
