Actor

An “overnight sensation” in the now iconic “Risky Business,” Cruise has been nothing if not prolific as both leading man and action hero — well known for his do-it-yourself stunts — with the likes of “Rainman,” “Jerry Maguire,” “Edge of Tomorrow,”  “Jack Reacher” and, count ’em, six “Mission: Impossible” films. Now arguably one of Hollywood’s most popular — if polarizing — actors, he has shown he’s still got it in the latest “MI” installment, “Fallout,” which has hit nearly $800 million. Some 24 years after “Top Gun” made him a megastar, Cruise is filming its star-studded sequel, set for release in 2020. Underwhelming returns on the “Mummy” reboot and “American Made” haven’t done much to dent his reputation for strong openings, and he has been nominated for three Oscars.
