When you make a movie with Tom Cruise, you’re not just getting an actor. On most of his projects, he doubles as a producer, a stuntman, and numerous other roles behind the camera. While some trade papers ran stories blasting Cruise for the amount of creative control he exercised on The Mummy, we can tell you from personal experience that Cruise is passionate about making the best possible movie he can. (And his track record shows that he’s successful far more often than he isn’t.) He told us that, in making the new drama American Made, his passions once again pushed him into uncharted territory, and that excites him. (Click on the media bar below to hear Tom Cruise)
