WEST hollywood – Cobie Smulders is to give credit where it is due.

The 37-year-old actress wasted no time in explaining to a crowd of reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, and just how influential Tom Cruise had on the ropes in the stunt world as she prepared for her role in the thrilling, high-action police drama in “Stumptown.”


“Yeah, I mean, when I worked with Tom [Cruise] to[Jack] Reacher,” that was when I learned the most I have had to add about training, about fighting, about character, about how to do it safely, because he was a pro, just doing it all properly and very good,” Smulders said about the acting other than the “Top Gun” franchise, stars in ” Jack Reacher: Never go Back.”

In the old Marvel mainstay, who portrayed S. H. I. E. L. D. agent Maria Hill in one of six Marvel Cinematic Universe films, starting with “Sir”, he said to her “Stumptown” was perfect for her, especially having regard to the character of Dex Parios, is a quick-witted army veteran-turned-private-investigator.

“Everything about her challenges me, but that’s what excites me,” Smulders told the crowd of reporters. “I’m not afraid of him. I mean, it was physically wearing, but you’re not really getting hurt. If you are injured, a person who does not do a good job.”

Smulders, 37, one of which is the man, comedian and actor Taran Killam, 37, was a series regular on a fellow NBC show, “Single Parents,” she said, as she was even more attracted to X, because of her willingness to be unafraid to say what’s on her mind.

“I just love her. I love the way she rolls, but she can feel it, you know,” Smulders explained. “I like to play a sort of sexually ambiguous woman on television. I think they are some kind of your own boss. I think that they just can’t be real – there are no rules for it. So, that’s how I found it.”

The “How I met Your Mother” alum went on to say, “We’re still trying to figure out the tone of this is right, because there’s a certain, you know, the P. I.’s way of talking, you know. Kind of like this cheeky one-liner, which I don’t think that kind of, sort of – it doesn’t fit quite right, but there is a time and a place for it to be taken that the rhythm and cycles.”

“So, it’s mostly her sense of humor is situational. However, I do think that there are opportunities as well. There’s a lot of physical comedy, but this is just really funny lines,” she added.

But as for Smulders, it was a quality of life that they sought, and, in becoming an executive producer of the graphic novel-to-series that, Smulders is happy that she can spend more time with her family.


“First of all, it is a blessing that I was on ‘How I met Your Mother’ for a long time, and that it was recorded in Los Angeles, and I was allowed to have a life to live in the city,” she said. “And I have been now for five years, and the travel is so much fun, I just feel that it will be a hit with the family. But it is so much fun – there is a very, very long hours, and it’s going to be really physically draining, but I’ll get to go to sleep in my own bed, my child, you will most likely come in at around 6 hours in that room.”

Smulders told reporters she is looking forward to her daughter Shaelyn, 10, and Janita, and 4, in order to bear witness to their mother’s in her element, and even said that they have to learn how to perform stunts on their own, and in the case of the rough-housing gets a little bit out of hand.

“There are definitely sacrifices, but it’s fascinating to me that I have two little girls, and it’s exciting for them to see their mother with a career and have dreams and fulfill them,” she said. “That’s what I told myself and still sleep at night. You are doing the best you can, and I’m a very hands-on parents, and everyone who was involved in this project and know that it has been very good so far.”

When asked how her daughter is usually responding to the sight of their mother, fake-its battered and bruised after the intense battle scenes, Smulders added: “I have to walk them through how to do it, stunts it, what it really is, but it’s not real.”


“Quite frankly, they don’t watch a lot of tv,” she continued. “I don’t think I’ve seen it in an episode of ‘How I met Your Mother’ and ‘the Avengers.’ They are very small and they do not see that to me in person. So, I will try to give you a sort of choreography involved, and that’s actually kind of like it’s fun to be one of them.”

“Stumptown,” which also stars Michael Ealy as That. Miles Hoffman, and Smulders’ love interest, will begin on Wednesday at 10 p.m. EST on ABC.
