He plays Neil Armstrong, the man who invented the moon walk in 1969 as the first human being to set foot on a cosmic body beyond the planet Earth.

The film focuses on the the eight year lead-up to the historic moon landing, including the grueling training process that early astronauts endured, tragic setbacks, and the support of family throughout this monumental exercise.
