Tom Cruise is back in our lives this week with a new film coming out this weekend — “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.”
Now, whenever I think of Cruise, three things come to mind first:
1) The “Mission Impossible” films, of course
2) “Show me the money, Jerry!”
3) The “Risky Business” living-room, lip-sync scene
The third one came rushing back to mind Monday night as Cruise appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and engaged in an incredible lip-sync battle with the host.
Cruise starts off with “Can’t Feel My Face” before Fallon hits him with some Rolling Stones. Around the 4:35 mark, Cruise hints at playing “Old Time Rock and Roll” with his second song, but that “would be unfair,” he says. The battle ends with the two guys singing “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” and serenading some poor woman in the front row. It’s an amazing performance.
Here’s the full video — enjoy. Tom Cruise has still got it.
