When you go up against agent Ethan Hunt in a mission, you know for sure who will win it, even if it’s a lip sync battle.
Having showed off his singing talent in 2012’s “Rock of Ages” and his smooth dance moves in 2008’s “Tropic Thunder”, Tom Cruise once again proved to us that he’s one multitalented actor through his appearance on the recent episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon“.
The 53-year-old actor, who is starring in the latest instalment of the “Mission Impossible” film series, appeared on “The Tonight Show” for the lip sync battle against Jimmy Fallon.
Titled “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation“, the movie sees Cruise reprising his role as IMF Agent Ethan Hunt. In an effort to promote the film, he showed that he’s a force to be reckoned with, with his lip-syncing skills on the show. Needless to say, he slayed the TV host with his renditions of The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face”, Meatloaf’s “Paradise By the Dashboard Light”, and the Righteous Brothers’ “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling”.
Watch the epic lip sync battle below:
We must admit, we aren’t surprised that he’s a karaoke champ. The lad practically invented lip-syncing in 1983’s “Ricky Business”. It’s a shame that he didn’t perform “Old Time Rock And Roll” during the battle though.
Cruise’s upcoming espionage film is currently slated for release on 31st July 2015. Don’t forget to check out Viacom’s “Lip Sync Battle” every Thursday on Comedy Central at 7:30pm (TH/WIB), 8:30pm (HK/PH/SG/TW) and 9:30pm (MY).
