During filming “Sully” (the story of a real-life feat of heroism in which his character, Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, safely landed an endangered plane New York’s Hudson river in 200) veteran actor Tom Hanks had faces some new experiences. It was his first time collaboration with director Clint Eastwood and he has likened Clint Eastwood’s directorial style to wrangling animals. Hanks told the Graham Norton Show, “You certainly don’t want one of those Eastwood looks.
“He treats his actors like horses because when he did the 60s series Rawhide, the director would shout ‘Action!’ and all the horses bolted. So when he’s in charge, he says in a really quiet soft voice, ‘All right, go ahead,’ and instead of shouting ‘Cut!’ he says ‘That’s enough of that.’ It’s intimidating as hell!”
Hanks also said that the real Sullenberger made for a strong presence on set, even criticizing Eastwood for his lack of punctuality when he was 20 minutes late.
