While attending the 2017 Sundance Film Festival premiere of his latest film Marjorie Prime at the Eccles Center Theatre on Monday (January 23), the 45-year-old talked about reuniting with Sam after 15 years at the festival’s Cinema Cafe panel.
“He was in the first movie I ever did. I made sure to keep my mouth shut and my eyes open when I was around Sam because he taught me a lot about being a professional actor,” Jon told The Associated Press. “A lot about behaving on set, a lot about being prepared and a lot about life. I got to see him for the first time since we shot that movie and he looks great and it was really great to see him again. It was moving and really nice to reconnect with someone that cool.”
Jon was joined at the Marjorie Prime premiere by his co-stars Tim Robbins, Lois Smith and Geena Davis, who all also stopped by The IMDb Studio featuring the Filmmaker Discovery Lounge, presented by Amazon Video Direct to promote the flick.
