CATEGORIES Movie NewsOn Thursday, Moviefone's Mike Ryan pointed out that Tom Cruise is the same age Wilford Brimley was when he starred in 'Cocoon.' Of course, that doesn't mean the 49-year-old Cruise plans on -- or can even pull off -- playing an elderly man in the near future. In fact, quite the opposite. After all, the next 'Mission Impossible' sequel will be out by the end of the year. And then there's 'One Shot.'
In the upcoming film, Cruise plays Jack Reacher, a former military officer-turned-drifter who investigates a sniper shooting. (It's based on the book series by Lee Child, where Reacher is described as being six-foot-five; movie magic, Tom!) New pics from the set of 'One Shot' have surfaced, showing Cruise getting into the seat of a red 1970 Chevelle. From the looks of it, Tom is still a long way off from Brimley. Must be the Quaker Oats.
