With Rhys featuring in the July issue of Esquire, we got the man himself to name five spy movies that every man should watch.

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002)
"Sam Rockwell is an absolute hero of mine and his performance in this is proof why."

 

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997)
"For the three-point turn. That still makes me laugh."

 

The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
