He was joined by his The Front Runner co-star J. K. Simmons.

Also in attendance were climber/director Jimmy Chin, director Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, and climber Alex Honnold.

Free Solo follows Alex as he becomes the first person to ever free solo climb Yosemite’s 3,000ft high El Capitan Wall. With no ropes or safety gear, he completed arguably the greatest feat in rock climbing history.

ICYMI, watch Hugh give fans a preview of his upcoming world tour with a performance of “The Greatest Show” live on Today.
