High-speed train Actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson says co-star Brad Pitt has a “good” list and a “shit” list of actors he will and won’t work with.
The couple star in the latest film by John Wick director David Leitch. It follows five assassins caught up in interconnected missions aboard a Japanese bullet train.
While promoting the film at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland, Taylor-Johnson was asked about his collaboration with the iconic actor.
“He’s in a new chapter in his life, I think,” Taylor-Johnson told reporters, per Varietyat the festival, describing Pitt as a “humble and gracious human being”.
The Kick ass The star continued: “He just wants to bring light and joy into the world and be around people who are there to have a good time.
“You work with a lot of actors and after a while you start taking notes: ‘I will definitely never work with that person again.’ Brad also has this list: the “good” list and the “s***” list.
During High-speed trains Premiering in Los Angeles on Monday (August 1), Taylor-Johnson detailed a horrific injury he suffered while filming the new action flick.
“We were in a fight sequence and I get kicked across the room,” the actor explained.
“The one sharp piece in the corner where there was no padding ripped a piece out of my hand. And I literally went wham, passed out,” he said.
Along with Pitt and Taylor-Johnson, High-speed train features an ensemble cast that includes Sandra Bullock, Joey King, Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz, Michael Shannon, Andrew Koji and musical artist Bad Bunny.
In his two-star review for The Independent, Clarisse Loughrey said Pitt’s goofball energy is wasted on the “extremely sufficient” action comedy.
High-speed train is currently in theaters.
