With every new glimpse we get at Mission: Impossible - Fallout, it looks like Tom Cruise is doing more stunts than he's ever done in a single adventure as agent Ethan Hunt. Not only that, but it appears Cruise is actually pioneering this ultra-niche act when it comes to presenting it on the silver screen as an actor. It was almost a decade later that the Tom Cruise-led Mission: Impossible feature film would turn the small screen spy series into a hugely-successful cinematic franchise.
Cruise is well known for the fact that he insists on performing his own stunts, even when they end up putting him in the hospital.
