NEW YORK — It's no secret that Tom Holland has been spotted around Cleveland while filming "Cherry" with the Russo brothers.

It's also no secret that Cleveland rocks.

Holland confirmed that sentiment to Jimmy Kimmel during an interview with the talk show host Wednesday night.

"I love Cleveland," Holland said. "I think Cleveland's great."

Kimmel backed him up.

"Cleveland is an underrated city," Kimmel said. "For some reason, someone decided every time we make fun of a city in America, it's going to be Cleveland."

Holland also noted that he may deserve credit for the Cleveland Browns' three-game win streak. He said Joe and Anthony Russo, who are Cleveland natives, took him to a few Browns games during their stay.

"Ever since we've been going, they started winning," Holland said, adding that he didn't attend the Browns' loss in Pittsburgh last weekend. He also pointed out that he doesn't actually fully understand the rules of American football.

"Cherry" has been filming around Cleveland since October. Crews have been spotted in Cleveland's Gordon Square neighborhood, while Holland also made the trek south to Mansfield, where he and Joe Russo spent a night off to visit the Ohio State Reformatory's "Blood Prison" haunted house.

According to IMDB, "Cherry" tells the story of an Army veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder who robs banks to dig himself out of debt caused by drug addiction. It also stars Bill Skarsgard, Jack Reynor and Ciara Bravo.
