The mission…since James Corden chose to accept it…was to go skydiving with Tom Cruise. Thankfully, after some protest, the ‘Late Late Show’ host joined the ‘Mission Impossible’ star for an epic plunge out of an airplane!
“I’m here and I’m terrified,” James Corden, 39, said as he met Tom Cruise, 56, on the tarmac of a Perris Valley, California airport. Tom, who does all his own stunts in the Mission: Impossible series (including a 5-mile skydive in Mission: Impossible – Fallout) challenged the Late Late Show host to a death-defying stunt, which James accepted….sorta. “I’ve actually been trying to get a hold of Tom the last couple of days to cancel but I had his number saved wrong in my phone,” Corden said during the July 26 skit.
