The former House actor stars alongside Clooney in the new Disney adventure film, about a reclusive inventor who returns to another dimension to change Earth's fate and comes face-to-face with Laurie's villain character.

The pair had to train for their fight scene and Laurie reveals they got to know each other a bit more than he expected.

He says during an onstage interview at the film's premiere in London on Sunday (17May15), "That (scene) was very exciting. We trained for that, we got into unseemly clothing and practiced on judo mats for a while so I've seen parts of George Clooney that other people might necessarily enjoy. I treasure that memory."

Tomorrowland is due for release in U.K. and U.S. cinemas on Friday (22May15).
