The "Men in Black" star was unable to reprise his role in "Independence Day: Resurgence" and said he was saddened when he learned Colonel Steven Hiller's fate in the trailer, which suggests he died while testing a new alien hybrid fighter.
"I was working on Suicide Squad during that time. (Independence Day director) Roland (Emmerich) and I had talked about it.
"The trailer looks really cool. I'm going to be sitting around with tears in my eyes when that one comes out... It was terrible when I found out my character died," he said.
