Slumdog may have swept last night's Oscars, but it took a TomKat to really kill. And we really do mean kill.
What Jimmy Kimmel Live's annual Oscar night special lacked in X-rated Matt Damon and Ben Affleck musical montages, it made up for with 30 of the arguably most entertaining seconds of the night, a tall order given Hugh Jackman's mostly rave reviews.
During the Academy Awards, Kimmel aired an action-packed promo for his late-night yukfest featuring none other than Tom Cruise—a vengeful, cat-fabricating, newly homeless Tom Cruise. In Kimmel's post-Oscar telecast, Cruise delved deeper into what went into crafting the would-be YouTube hit (hint: "Jimmy kept calling and calling…begging") in Behind the Scenes of the Jimmy Kimmel Live Thirty Second Promo.
Apparently, the encounter wasn't quite the mutual admiration society Kimmel may have been hoping for.
"I've worked with so many great actors in my career," Cruise said. "This is a nice change.
"I dig your stuff, too…the Top 10 list? That's hilarious. And the Jay-walking, I love that stuff."
