Turns out, being a spy is as cool as it sounds. In this animated movie, Tom Holland’s character, Walter Beckett, is a scientist, who transforms the spy, Lance Sterling, into a pigeon. It only gets crazier from there. Lance Sterling is portrayed by the Academy-Award nominated actor, Will Smith. When Tom Holland was asked about voice acting with Will Smith, he explained that he hadn’t met him until they did an escape room.
“It was kind of crazy, you know, because we did an escape room together,” Holland said during an interview with Variety. “I’ve been a big Will Smith fan for a long time, and then all of a sudden I was locked in a room with him, trying to get us to escape. And I don’t know if I wanted to escape, I was enjoying myself in there with Will Smith.”

It amplifies the experience in a way. We can look at each other and say, ‘Holy crap, can you believe that this is happening right now?’”
