For the inaugural episode of our new stats-driven podcast, Rotten Tomatoes’ By the Numbers, RT Editor Jacqueline Coley and RT Correspondent Mark Ellis sat down with stunt performer and actor, Lewis Tan. During our chat, the Into the Badlands and Deadpool 2 star talked about growing up in a stunt family and shared some love for his own action hero idols.

The conversation was just one segment of the podcast, which focused on everything Summer Action: We asked which landmarks get destroyed most often in action films, and which action stars have the highest Tomatometers. And we spoke about Tom Cruise running – because the guy runs a lot.
