Tom Cruise and James Corden have epic comedic timing, literally. The pair were able to act out Tom’s film career, in its ENTIRETY, in under ten minutes on the Oct. 19 episode of ‘The Late Late Show’ and it was everything. Check out Tom and James doing every film, from ‘Risky Business’ to ‘Top Gun’ to ‘Jerry Maguire,’ after the jump!
Tom Cruise, 54, has had one amazing career that spans several decades now. So, it doesn’t seem possible that it could all be condensed into just nine minutes. But, when Tom came on The Late Late Show on Oct. 19, James Corden, 38, was so excited to have him there that he decided they should give it a try. And OMG are we so glad they did because the 10 minutes they spent acting out all of Tom’s films were nothing short of brilliant.
Tom and James went through everything from the classics, like Top Gun, Cocktail, Risky Business, Mission Impossible and Jerry Maguire, to the bizarre cameos, i.e. Tropic Thunder. It was hysterical watching James and Tom throw on costumes and tear them off, grab props from off stage and throw them back, and have the scenery change behind them faster than you can say Born on the Fourth of July. We could not have been more impressed. Oscars all around!
At the end, James turned to Tom while they happened to be acting out Jack Reacher and said the first film had been so good, they should make a sequel. That’s when Tom hilariously turn to the camera and told us that they had in fact made a sequel and it would be coming out on Oct. 21. It was so perfect! We have to say, only A Few Good Men, like Tom and James, could have handled such an intense comedic task. Great job guys!
