Tom Cruise has revealed his ambition is to star in a Broadway musical
Tom Cruise wants to star in a Broadway musical.
The 46-year-old actor is desperate to follow in the footsteps of his wife Katie Holmes - who is currently appearing in a play on New York's famous theatre district - by treading the boards in a singing production.
Tom, who was appearing as a guest on 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno', said: "I would like to do a musical. I like making movies but I'm not saying 'no' to Broadway."
Tom then tried to convince host Jay to let him debut his singing voice on the programme, saying: "We should do that right now!"
The Hollywood star then got up and started impersonating Elvis Presley, singing his famous hit 'Blue Suede Shoes', and leaped from the couch to perform some Elvis-style dance moves.
Tom also took the opportunity to talk about his family, showing off a picture of himself dressed as Santa Claus with Katie and their two-year-old daughter Suri.
He said: "Mrs. Claus is looking very hot!"
