Top actors have a way of becoming their characters that allows us to forget they are movie stars for a little while. How they inhabit someone else’s skin can be a real wonder, at least to those of us who will never have that skill. Each actor has their own way of preparing for a role, and sometimes they end up preparing in a way you’d never guess in a million years. Take, for instance, Tom Cruise in the 2004 film Collateral.
You might not remember this film but that’s okay because it really kind of flew under the radar for the most part. To prepare for the part of the unknown assassin though Tom Cruise actually delivered for the UPS for a short while to get the feel of being able to get into and get out of a place without being recognized. That was the whole point of the movie to be quite honest, to go unnoticed until it was too late.
