Ageless Tom Cruise Fights Hard in new Jack Reacher: Never Go Back TV Spot

He might technically be 54, but you wouldn't know it by watching his films. If anything, the stunts and action that Tom Cruise regularly pulls off these days, from his Mission: Impossible films to Edge of Tomorrow to the most recent Jack Reacher: Never Go Backthe man seems to be getting younger as he ages. Don't take our word for it; we interviewed stunt coordinator Wade Eastwood, a man who worked with Cruise on Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, and was more than happy to explain to us how hard Cruise works. Heck, you don't even have to take Eastwood's word for it; just watch this:

In Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Cruise is back to his incredibly intense stunt work. Granted, he might not be hanging off the side of a plane, but make no mistake about how hard these hand-to-hand combat scenes are to film, let alone all the running, jumping, and crashing into, over and through stuff is. On October 21, you'll have a chance to watch a 54 year old man remind you that you're only as old as your willingness to do crazy things to your body is.
