The director wore faded black jeans and black sneakers with a thick sole for navigating the snowy areas of the ski resort town.
The pair stopped by the Variety Studio presented by Audible to talk about their new film, Hit Man.
Glen stars as philosophy professor who moonlights as an undercover police officer with a talent for finding people who want to hire contract killers.
His sense of duty is challenged when he meets and falls in love with a woman, played by Adria Arjona, who wants her husband knocked off.
The plot is based on a true story that took place in Texas about 20 years ago, but Richard and Glen, who co-wrote the screenplay, have turned it into a romantic comedy.
Glen, who is stars in the rom-com Anyone But You with Sydney Sweeney, 26, defended the genre during a question and answer session.
The film has been a box office success, earning more than $100 million worldwide.
‘I’ve always been a fan of movies in general and I always find it silly when certain actors diminish certain genres,’ the leading man said.
‘At its best execution, it gives an audience such joy and such fun, and as an actor you do get to play a lot of gears. To kind of scoff at a genre and look down on it is kind of silly.’
‘For me, Anyone But You was such a treat to see audiences dance out of the theater and feel so happy after watching a movie,’ he explained.
‘To see the box office not just stick but grow has been such a cool lesson that sometimes the genres that have been forgotten are the ones audiences are craving the most.’
