Tom Cruise, Cuba Gooding Jr., Corden Recreate Jerry Maguire, Top Gun, Mission: Impossible and More

James Corden endured some Risky Business on Wednesday, acting alongside Tom Cruise in a live-to-tape, rapid-fire recreation of some of his most iconic roles.

Cruise, who’s currently promoting Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, partook in The Late Late Show’s signature “Role Call” segment, which calls on A-list talent to relive their filmography via green-screen-enhanced reenactments all shot in one take. He even got an assist from Cuba Gooding Jr., who made a surprise cameo when it came time to revive Jerry Maguire.

In total, Cruise and Corden reenacted scenes from 22 (!) films: Top Gun, Days of Thunder, Rain Man, Tropic Thunder, War of the Worlds, Minority Report, all five Mission: Impossibles, Born on the Fourth of July, Rock of Ages, Interview With the Vampire, A Few Good Men, Cocktail, The Last Samurai, Vanilla Sky, Jack Reacher, Edge of Tomorrow and the aforementioned Jerry Maguire and Risky Business. Previous “Role Call” participants have included Tom HanksMatt Damon and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    This was so awesome, I’ve seen every Cruise movie he’s ever done so I enjoyed this a lot. Jack Reacher 2 is gonna be great.

    SHOW…ME…THE…CORDEN!! Also Mr. Cruise literally forgot to take off the wig going from Eyes Wide Shut to A Few Good Men and kudos to Cuba Gooding Jr. dropping in as well. Overall it’s one of the best Late Late Show theater in recent memory.
