Greg McCambley and I have long thought about doing the Mission: Impossible films as live tweets. There’s a bunch of them and for the most part, they’re all pretty damn entertaining. With the 20th anniversary of the first appearance of Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt approaching in May, we thought what better time than the now? But but but we thought… Tom Cruise has appeared in a bunch of movies that would make some goddamn great live tweets. They’d be off the #Bond_age_ reservation, but, hey, why the hell not?

Tom Cruising: Volume 1

To whet your appetite here’s Tom Cruise stopping by The Tonight Show for a Lip Sync Battle with Jimmy Fallon. He might have busted out the Risky Business big guns.
