From Yahoo! Entertainment :

It's the most hotly-awaited flick of 2006, and now ET has a sneak peek at some of the spectacular stunts in Tom Cruise's highly anticipated 'Mission: Impossible III,' in theaters May 5!

"This film is going to give the audience that 'Mission' ride," says Tom. "There's more stunts and bigger sequences; more than I've done in any movie, ever."

Keri Russell, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Laurence Fishburn, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and, of course, the returning Ving Rhames round out the all-star cast, and the movie's plot is being kept tightly under wraps, but the director, "Lost" mastermind J.J. Abrams, can't stop talking about the spectacular stunts!

"All the things that happen in this movie, Tom did every single one of those things," he says, "like having trucks driving over him, or sliding down things, or big fight sequences, or jumping off the building."

"For me it's part of the challenge of making these movies," explains Tom. "I can't help but look at something and think, 'Can I climb that? Can I jump from that?' I hope that an audience will be thrilled, and so that when you have that action it's just going to just send them."


Long after his difficult and dangerous movie stunts are forgotten, Tom will be remembered for his spectacular leap onto Oprah's couch.

Now that's a stunt! He'll never be able to top that. Or live it down.
