Tom Cruise has made it a professional point of pride that he does all of his own stunts. 54 years old, still ripped, and with nothing to lose, he’s made headlines and earned respect by jumping out of every structure imaginable, developing proficiency with various firearms, and most recently and notably, clinging to the side of a aircraft in active flight like a little gecko with a death wish. It would appear there’s nothing the man won’t do (aside from keep his shirt on for the full duration of a studio film), and a special report from the set of his upcoming thriller American Made has raised the bar even higher.
A new Tom Cruise movie opens in theaters this Friday (that would be The Mummy) and so it’s time to look ahead to the next Tom Cruise movie, the fall’s American Made. There must always be a Tom Cruise movie in impending release or Hollywood collapses.
