Jackson, Jr. and Mitchell, who star as Ice Cube and Eazy-E of pioneering rap band N.W.A. in the new biopic, met Anthony Sadler, Spencer Stone and Alek Skarlatos in a street in the French capital on Sunday night (23Aug15).

It came just days after the trio helped to restrain a gunman as he prepared to open fire on a train from Amsterdam, Netherlands, to Paris on Friday (21Aug15), and the actors showed their appreciation for the men's bravery by inviting them to the screening on Monday night (24Aug15).

Sadler was later pictured attending the premiere but it is not known if Stone and Skarlatos joined him, according to TMZ.com.
