Jake Johnson’s ‘Weird Ride’ From Stoner Bro to Action Star and Back Again

Jake Johnson has run from dinosaurs with Chris Pratt, fought off mummies with Tom Cruise and embodied an alternate universe Spiderman. But for his latest project ‘Ride the Eagle,’ the actor has scaled things way back, teaming up with ‘New Girl’ director Trent O’Donnell to see if they could create a movie that is both safe to shoot during the pandemic and satisfying from a storytelling perspective.

Parker character from ‘Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse’
