Today is Tom Cruise's birthday.
If you don't know who Tom Cruise is, then you've probably never been to the movies. The prolific actor has been one of Hollywood's biggest names since the eighties, headlining action hits, science fiction thrillers, and memorable dramas. Highlights on Cruise's lengthy resume include the entire Mission: Impossible franchise (now entering its sixth installment), Jack Reacher, Minority Report, War of The Worlds, Jerry Maguire, and Top Gun. Cruise's entire list is—well—much longer than that, but start here.
Cruise is on a bit of a sequel binge with his upcoming films Mission: Impossible 6, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, and the recently announced Top Gun 2. He's also starring in The Mummy reboot, as well as the Doug Liman Directed Mena.
Born in Syracuse, New York, Cruise turns 54 today. Happy Birthday, Tom Cruise.
