Tom Cruise Talks Rock of Ages, Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol, to Access Hollywood

Working on the upcoming movies Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and Rock of Ages, Tom Cruise took a break to catch up with the good folks at Access Hollywood to update fans on the movie magic! The actor has been hard at work filming the fourth installment in the Mission: Impossible film series before quickly shifting gears for the rock musical adapted to film from the hit Broadway show!

That’s dedication to the craft of acting! Covering all the bases for fans, Tom’s been hustling to keep the stunts incredible while quickly learning songs and singing. It’s got to be a challenging change of pace.

We’re out of breath just writing about it. ;)

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is in post-production under the watch of director Brad Bird following shoots in locales as diverse as Prague, Dubai and Vancouver. Tom returns as super agent Ethan Hunt, joined by Simon Pegg in a reprisal of his role as technician Benji Dunn. The crew now includes Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner. The story was written and co-produced by Misson: Impossible III director J.J. Abrams.

And after walking away from that shoot, Tom’s now in training to play rocker Stacee Jaxx in the film adaptation of the musical, Rock of Ages. Joining director Adam Shankman, Tom expands his experience to include singing and playing guitar on rock hits from the 1980s. Rock of Ages tells the tale of a fictional rock club from the era’s infamous Sunset Strip. Movie fans can expect their fill of fantastic songs, lyrics and music-laden story.

Tom gives his take on Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and Rock of Ages in the video from Hulu above. :)

So what do you think about the upcoming Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol? Are you just as excited or more so for Rock of Ages? Or are you ready to see both!? Let us know in the comments section.

    Hi, guys. Can any of you tell me why the official facebook profile appears as not available? It’s been “erased” from my list of favorite sites and I haven’t been able to read any of your posts during this week. Any suggestions about why this is going on?
