Tom Cruise Birthday Special: Need a Break From Ethan Hunt? Here’re 5 Amazing Performances Where We Saw the Acting Brilliance of Mission Impossible Star!



Tom Cruise is a walking-talking lesson when it comes to age being just a number. Just look at his face, or check the death-defying stunts that he has done in the recent years, and can you tell if he is someone nearing 60! Tom Cruise, the global superstar, is popularly known for his role of Agent Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible series. He will also be reprising the role of Maverick in the Top Gun sequel, that sees him piloting an actual fight jet, something he let the real pilots do in the first film, when he was younger and more of a teen sensation. Tom Cruise’s Vintage Pictures Take the Internet by Storm on His 58th Birthday!

Having begun his acting career in bit parts and in supporting roles in films like The Outsiders, Tom Cruise achieved his breakout success as a lead in the 1983 film Risky Business. Top Gun‘s mega success in 1986 cemented his superstar status, while his roles in  The Color of Money (1986), Rain Man (1988), and Born on the Fourth of July (1989) gave him more notice as an actor. With Mission: Impossible saga launching off in 1996, his global reign began. Tom Cruise to Get Back in Action, Will Resume the Shooting of Mission Impossible 7 in September.

On the occasion of his birthday, let’s give his action roles a break and look at the seven times Tom Cruise impressed us as an actor.

Born on the Fourth of July

This Oliver Stone film had Tom Cruise transition from a teenage sensation to being seen as an actor with serious dexterity. He plays a paralysed ex-army veteran who uses his post-war life in anti-war activism. It is a brilliant performance that got Tom his first Oscar nomination.

A Few Good Men

Considered as one of the best legal dramas in Hollywood, also remade in Bollywood as Shaurya, A Few Good Men is about a scandal that happens in the US Marine Department. Cruise plays an inexperienced lawyer given charge of finding the guilty. While the movie is most notable for Jack Nicholson’s final monologue, Cruise also gives a very powerful performance in the courtroom scenes.

Interview with the Vampire

An interesting trivia – author Anne Rice, on whose book this movie is based on, wasn’t very interested in Tom Cruise playing the vampire Lestat. But after seeing his performance in the film, she admitted she was wrong in her initial apprehension and said, “From the moment he appeared, Tom was Lestat for me.” And we totally agree with her!

Jerry Maguire

Think Leonardo DiCaprio was unlucky when it came to Oscars, before finally winning one for The Revenant? Tom Cruise hasn’t gotten one yet, even though he has been nominated a few times, and his amazing performance as a beleaguered sports agent in Jerry Maguire getting overlooked makes you wonder why the injustice!


Tom Cruise in Magnolia

Paul Thomas Anderson’s ensemble drama features an array of popular names like Philip Baker Hall, Philip Seymour Hoffman, William H Macy, Alfred Molina, Julianne Moore, John C Reilly et al. But amidst those wonderful actors, Cruise stood out as Frank Macke, a motivational speaker going through a personal crisis. He earned another Academy Award nominations for his performance.


Tom Cruise in Collateral

Why doesn’t Tom Cruise do more negative roles? He is just so good at it! In this Michael Mann crime thriller, he plays a diligent assassin who gets his job of killing people done, no matter what’s at stake. The movie was later remade in Bollywood as The Killer, with the late Irrfan Khan stepping into his shoes.

Tropic Thunder

Imagine you have never heard of this action comedy, directed by Ben Stiller, and just started watching it on a whim. Would you have recognised that the bald, paunchy, hairy, foul-mouthed producer Les Grossman was errr… Tom Cruise? One of the best cameos ever done, Cruise was so unrecognisable in the role, both in the makeup and his performance, that people actually went back to watching the film again to see how they missed not recognising the actor. Seriously, why doesn’t Cruise do more comic roles too?
