Tom Cruise appeared on the "Tonight Show" Thursday to promote his WWII drama "Valkyrie," but wound up sharing his musical ambitions and Elvis impersonation in the process. When host Jay Leno asked Cruise if he'd ever consider doing Broadway and musicals, he replied, "Yes, I'd like to do a musical," then confessed he had enjoyed performing in "Guys and Dolls" in high school (which prompted Leno to shout "Broadway is my LIFE!").
Leno then asked Cruise if he'd ever sung on television, and he answered "No, I haven't...we should do that now," before breaking into Elvis's "Blue Suede Shoes"-- tentatively at first, but as the audience egged him on he picked up momentum. Finally, he jumped off the couch to do a little hip gyration as Leno shouted "Yeah! Yeah!"
