With Universal’s The Mummy hitting theaters on Friday, Jake Johnson (who plays Chris Vail in the film) took part in a round of “Co-star Crush” on EW: The Show in order to share the love for his fellow cast-mates, and there was a lot to go around.

About the film’s leading man Tom Cruise, Johnson said he’s “the hardest working man I’ve ever worked with,” adding the action star is also “willing to get hurt for your entertainment.” (Apparently, according to costar Annabelle Wallis, Cruise is willing to almost get vomited upon, as well).

To see what Johnson had to say about Wallis, Russell Crowe, Sofia Boutella, Courtney B. Vance, and director Alex Kurtzman, watch the full video above.

The Mummy is now in theaters.
