Tom Cruise takes James Corden on a sky-diving adventure
Hollywood action star Tom Cruise is famous for insisting on doing his own stunts, and when he went on the "The Late Late Show," he challenged host James Corden to take a leap of faith - thousands of feet up in the air from an airplane.

The two men's whole up-in-the-air adventure was posted on Youtube on the 26th of July 2018.

The action star jumped solo, but Corden needed help
Corden was nervous and doubtful of Danny's abilities even after the man told him he had jumped 7.000 times.
The video is hilarious, especially because Corden is so nervous, and uses his zany wit to disguise it.

Cruise proved that the mission was possible
The video was shown in front of Corden's live audience, who loved it and laughed uproariously at the hosts fumbling attempts at getting out of the challenge.
Corden quips that if things go wrong, the next day the news would be: "Tom Cruise killed tragically, and some other man died too."
