James Corden helps Tom Cruise act out his most memorable scenes

If you ever wanted to check out Tom Cruise's movie career all at once, you can get it done in under 10 minutes.

Cruise, as usual, spent an hour meeting fans on the red carpet taking selfies and signing autographs and when explaining what he believes he and the all-action ex-military man Reacher have in common he mused it is their total commitment to their work.

Tom Cruise reenacted his filmography-half of it, at least-in a segment for the The Late Late Show with James Corden.

The duo donned aviators to start out the montage with Top Gun, moving into films like Days of Thunder and War of the Worlds.

Lou not suprised at Nobel for Bob Dylan
President Barack Obama has offered his congratulations to Bob Dylan for being awarded the Nobel Prize in literature. His most listened to song was "Like a Rolling Stone", which was streamed at a 258 percent increase.


The Mission Impossible series was a coordinated string of stunts put together, including hanging off of a building.

More than 20 movies were featured with Cruise and Corden acting out the parts in front of a green screen and with make-shift props, but one of the highlights came when Cuba Gooding Jr., stepped in for Corden during the Jerry Maguire scene. Cruise is totally at home in this role, which requires him to run about, punch and shoot people and drive fast for most of the movie.

Cruise's new film Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is already out in the United Kingdom and will be released in the U.S. on October 21. It sees Cruise reprise his role in the sequel to the 2012 film Jack Reacher playing a former U.S. military officer turned fugitive, on a mission to uncover a conspiracy that has accused his colleague, Major Susan Turner, of espionage.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back has been directed by Edward Zwick who worked with Cruise on 2003's The Last Samurai and said that the two had developed a trust and simply "took up where we left off".
