Aaron Tague Talks About Working with Tom Cruise

 
Aaron Tague Talks About Working with Tom Cruise
 
January 25, 2011 -  Five Ten    
 

I'm sure you have all seen the famous shots of Tom Cruise scaling the side of a Dubai skyscraper in the latest Mission Impossible movie. Well did you also know that Five Ten designed a custom shoe with a specially formulated rubber for Tom to use in this scene?

Also on the set was Five Ten athlete Aaron Tague who consulted Tom Cruise, or "TC" as they call him on set. Backpacker.com caught up with Aaron at the recent OR Winter show in Salt Lake City to ask him a few questions about Five Ten's new rubber and what it was like working with Tom Cruise.

 

"Tom asked me to climb this wall that had been set up. He really wants the climbing community to buy into this scene, and he was analyzing everything. The way I roll my pants before I climb. My hip movement. Then, as I'm climbing, TC starts asking me to show more emotion. He's getting really amped and says again Show More Emotion! I'm getting kinda annoyed, and I stop and say I'm Not An Actor! Then TC lightens up and says 'I like this guy. We're keeping him'."
