Hunks Who Got Their Start in Fantasy Films
Tom Cruise – Legend
Remember that internet meme of Tom Cruise leaping onto Oprah’s couch and zapping her with finger-tip lightning bolts like the Old Dude from Star Wars? We’ll call that his second journey into sci-fi / fantasy. His first was Ridley Scott’s Legend back in 1985, one year before Top Gun propelled him into the stratosphere of Hollywood hunkery. There was a unicorn; he used a sword. More people probably saw the meme.
