  • -My first guest is a very talented actor

  • that you know from his work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

  • Now he is starring in the highly anticipated new film "Cherry,"

  • which hits select theaters Friday

  • and will be streaming on Apple TV Plus starting March 12th.

  • Here is Tom Holland.

  • Tom, ah, it's great -- -Hey, Jimmy.

  • -It's a pleasure to meet you.

  • Thank you so much. -Thank you, mate.

  • Nice to meet you, too. -I'm a big fan.

  • I wish you could be here in person.

  • But I hear that you've gotten very comfortable

  • doing virtual press, if you --

  • -Yes. -Maybe a little too --

  • Maybe a little too comfortable. I want to show you something.

  • You posted this photo recently of your virtual press look.

  • It made me laugh.

  • -Let's have a look. -[ Laughs ]

  • Oh, yeah.

  • -That's -- Yeah. It's only the waist up, man.

  • I thought that was -- I thought that was rad.

  • And then Joe Russo, who -- the Russo Brothers,

  • who has directed you in "The Avengers"

  • and your new film, "Cherry," decided to copy your look.

  • Can we take a look at that? -The thing that kills me

  • is that Joe's actually got nicer legs than I do.

  • -[ Laughs ] He does!

  • I looked at it, too. -Look at his legs.

  • -Does he shave his legs, you think?

  • -I don't know what he does. I don't have to shave my legs,

  • because I'm like a prepubescent teenager.

  • I haven't grown hair on my legs yet.

  • Here, look, I'll just give you a little glance.

  • -[ Laughing ] Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

  • Holy mackerel.

  • Oh, you're in big trouble already, man.

  • Hey, you know what's interesting?

  • I was noticing -- You don't wear pants,

  • but you do wear socks, though.

  • -Yeah, 'cause it's cold, and I --

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • Of course. Of course it is. Yeah, I totally get it.

  • -Because I got to wear this suit jacket,

  • and the suit jacket's too hot. -Yeah.

  • -But I have my legs out, 'cause it's nice and freeing,

  • but then my toes get cold, so I wear my socks.

  • [ Chuckling ] Toes get cold. Oh, my God.

  • I know that you're in Atlanta

  • shooting the new Spider-Man movie.

  • And I know you can't say much about it.

  • But there are a lot of rumors out there.

  • Some people are saying

  • that Jamie Foxx might be coming back as Electro.

  • No reaction.

  • There's also a fan theory that your Spider-Man predecessors,

  • Tobey Maguire

  • and Andrew Garfield... -Right.

  • -...might be making a cameo in this movie.

  • You can't confirm or deny.

  • -It would be amazing if they were,

  • because they haven't told me that yet.

  • And I am Spider-Man,

  • and I've read the script from the beginning to the end.

  • So it would be a miracle if they could have kept that from me.

  • -Yeah. -But at the moment,

  • there is no cameo from the two boys.

  • -But they do keep things from you, though, don't they?

  • -Yeah, and actually, it's getting to the point

  • where it's really frustrating. -Yeah.

  • -Because I feel like now I've progressed.

  • I'm a trustworthy member of the Avengers.

  • And I haven't really ever spoiled anything.

  • -Mm.

  • -Well, there's a few things,

  • but no big things. -Wait, you actually have.

  • You actually have. -We'll leave it at that.

  • -But there's one rumor that you can exclusively confirm tonight.

  • -Okay, go ahead. -This will be the first

  • Spider-Man movie with two Hollands in it.

  • -Yes. -Your little brother Harry

  • will be in the movie. Is this correct?

  • -Yes, this is correct, yeah.

  • -Who does he play, and has he shot his part yet?

  • -Yes, in "Cherry," he has a small cameo in "Cherry,"

  • and he plays a character called the shaky kid,

  • and he's a drug dealer.

  • So we kind of had this idea that in every film I would be in

  • that Harry would reprise his role as the shaky kid.

  • So he is back again

  • in his own sort of weird MCU Cinematic Universe cameo

  • as the ecstasy-dealing shaky kid.

  • Yeah. -Unbelievable.

  • He's already being typecast.

  • -I know. It's terrible. Bless him.

  • It must be really difficult for him.

  • -Is it fun, shooting with your brother?

  • Do you pick on each other?

  • How does it work?

  • -It's interesting. In the scene, he gets flipped upside-down.

  • Spider-Man webs him upside-down,

  • and then he's swinging back and forth

  • while I'm having an argument with someone,

  • and he's kind of swinging through frame.

  • And I've obviously done that for years.

  • Being upside-down is second nature to me now,

  • so I know how difficult it can be.

  • So at the beginning of the day, I was, like,

  • making the takes extra, extra long

  • just to see how long it would take before he blacked out.

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • -You're like, "Can we do that one more time?

  • Just keep him swinging. Keep him swinging back there."

  • -Yeah, I think I forgot my line.

  • Like [bleep] what was my line again?

  • Oh, that's right, "I'm Spider-Man." And then --

  • -That was the line. Sorry. My bad.

  • -I forgot. I thought I was Batman for a moment.

  • -I'm Spider-Man. That's exactly correct.

  • -But then towards the end of the day,

  • I really did start to get worried about him.

  • And I was sort of saying to the director,

  • like, "Listen, man, we got to move on now.

  • Look at him. He can hardly speak anymore."

  • -He's blue, yeah. -Yeah. Bless him.

  • It's a funny scene, though, and it was really fun for me

  • to get to share that moment with him.

  • I'm sure my mum and dad will be really proud.

  • -That's cool, bud.

  • One of the stages where you're shooting "Spider-Man 3"

  • is actually the same place that you originally auditioned

  • for the role of Spider-Man?

  • -Yeah. -And I was just going to --

  • What was that like, and in a weird way,

  • does it bring back flashbacks of auditioning and going like --

  • 'Cause I remember auditions, and I never liked them.

  • -Yeah, it's an interesting feeling because I walk on-stage,

  • and I have that moment of panic, of like, I haven't got my lines.

  • I'm going to ruin the audition. I'm not going to get the part.

  • And then I sort of look back at my trailer,

  • which is now way bigger than it used to be.

  • And I go, "Ah, I'm okay. I'm on the third one.

  • I'm fine. This is all good."

  • -Uh, yeah, exactly. It's all good.

  • I want to talk to you about your new film, "Cherry."

  • You're incredible in this.

  • -Thank you. -Congrats.

  • And it's already getting all sorts of awards buzz.

  • The movie is about a lot of things.

  • It's about war. It's about addiction. It's about PTSD.

  • Can you talk about why --

  • Why was it important for you to tell this story?

  • -I think firstly, you know,

  • I needed to sort of educate myself on the problem.

  • The opioid epidemic

  • wasn't something I knew particularly very much about.

  • And I think one of my favorite things about the film

  • is my character doesn't have a name.

  • And the reason he doesn't have a name

  • is because it's not the story of one person.

  • We're telling the story

  • of millions of people around the world

  • who are suffering from this problem

  • that is addiction and PTSD.

  • So, for me, I wanted to make this movie

  • because I wanted to help shed light

  • on a problem that is on everybody's doorstep.

  • It's seemingly invisible. The battle against addiction

  • is one that always seems to be fought in the shadows.

  • So I hope that people can watch this film

  • and feel more confident about opening up, seeking help.

  • I think seeking help

  • is something that people should be heralded for

  • and congratulated,

  • saying that, "You've recognized you've got a problem.

  • You're seeking help, and I'm really proud of you."

  • But unfortunately, that isn't the case.

  • So I hope that this film can really kind of

  • turn people's perspectives

  • on what it means to be an addict and suffering from PTSD.

  • -In this movie, you -- It follows your character

  • through lots of different phases,

  • including being a heroin addict.

  • And I read that you lost 30 pounds to do those scenes,

  • and I heard that it wasn't shot in order.

  • So you actually had to -- -No.

  • -Why? Why not shoot it in order?

  • -I think that's just the natural way

  • of doing an independent film.

  • You know, the schedule is always going to be complicated.

  • -Yeah. -The thing for me was that

  • we had a three-month period before we started shooting

  • where I could lose the weight.

  • We then shot for about eight weeks

  • where I was doing the dope life section of the movie

  • and obviously maintained that weight loss.

  • And as we then went into the chapters of him falling in love,

  • him joining the Army, him fighting in Iraq,

  • I could slowly put the weight back on.

  • But during that part of the film,

  • the Russos wrote this new section for dope life,

  • which is the section where my wife overdoses,

  • and I go to the car and have that awful scene in the car.

  • And I remember them pitching me the idea.

  • And I love the Russos. I would do anything for them.

  • But I genuinely felt like they were trying to kill me.

  • Like, "I finished that. I've put that to bed, man."

  • -You're like, "I just gained all the weight back.

  • You're joking, right?"

  • -Yeah, I was like, "Is this a joke?

  • Is someone filming me? Are you trying to get me to flip out?

  • What's going on here?"

  • But, yeah, no, so I had to start trying to lose weight again.

  • And then we filmed those three scenes.

  • And I'm really proud we did.

  • I think they really help the film.

  • I think they help the narrative of telling the story

  • of how tragic the lives of these people can be.

  • But it was tough. It was tough, to say the least.

  • -I want to show everyone a clip.

  • Here's Tom Holland in "Cherry." Take a look.

  • ♪♪

  • -Have you seen bad things?

  • ♪♪

  • -Yeah, a little.

  • -Are people getting killed?

  • Because I'm seeing on the news

  • that people are getting killed.

  • -[ Sobs quietly ] -Hello?

  • -Yeah, baby, I'm here.

  • -You're going to make it through this, okay?

  • I know that you're going to make it through this.

  • ♪♪

  • -Could you just talk about you for a second?

  • What's going on with you?

  • -Tom Holland, everybody. When we come back,

  • Tom and I are going head-to-head in a brand-new game.

  • It's gonna be fun. Stick around.
