Tom Cruise and Jimmy Fallon try to save the world in comedy skit

Tom Cruise showed off his funny side last night when appearing on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon in a hilarious skit with the host.

The actor - who was promoting his latest film ‘Mission Impossible — Fallout’ - swapped secret messages with the TV host on a train while pretending to be two spies.
