Tom Cruise has been in some great movies. Like, a lot of them. If somehow you don't believe that, check out every single one. The actor took some time to blitz through all of his most famous parts with late night's James Corden. It's entertaining and hilarious and has more than a few surprises along the way. Check it out.
The career of Tom Cruise has been one of the most memorable in recent history. He's done everything from action to comedy as well as dramatic movies. As a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the host and the actor joined up to do a run through pretty much the guy's entire career. They opened with Cruise's biggest movie Top Gun and closed with the movie that brought the actor to the attention of Hollywood and the audience Risky Business, everybody remained clothed for that one.
The highlights, as per usual, were when the two went off script, or apparently so. The Edge of Tomorrow bit where James Cordon just repeatedly shoots Tom Cruise in the face was great. Following the Interview with the Vampire scene, Cruise forgot to remove his wig, meaning he started his A Few Good Men cross-examination with Lestat hair. The best part, however, was when one of Cruise's co-stars showed up to do his lines himself. There really is nobody who can do "Show me the money" quite like Cuba Gooding Jr.
Tom Cruise even gets to take a minute to plug his sequel to Jack Reacher, after kicking James Corden in the junk. Of course, you also get reenactments of all the best stunts from the Mission: Impossible franchise.
Not every movie in the sketch is a classic. Cocktail is famous for being one of Tom Cruise's worst films, though it does make for an entertaining scene to be sure. The same is the case for Rock of Ages. Tom Cruise himself is great in the film, but the movie is not going to go down as a classic. Not without the word "cult" stuck in front of it at the very least.
