English actor Tom Wilkinson has revealed the reasons behind his decision to work on the movie Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, claiming that one of the key reasons was that the pay was too good to say no. Tom also admitted that he was fond of Tom Cruise and his family and was looking forward to working with the actor.
Wilkinson explained, "To be honest the pay was too good to turn down and I liked Tom Cruise, I've worked with him a couple of times and I've got to know his wife and him the year before really quite well as I done a television programme with his wife, and I've worked with him and he wanted me to come over and do it. I was quite happy to do that." Tom then admitted that he now only takes roles that he thinks he will enjoy.
He added, "This past year I only had three, two really small roles and one just a couple of days work on Mission Impossible movie. I just look at it and think can I do this? Would it be fun to do, the answer is generally yes, if it is yes then you think I'll do it." Tom Wilkinson can be seen on the big screen in the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which is released in the UK on February 24 and in the US on May 4.
