According to The Sun, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz will take to the infamous Top Gear track in an attempt to topple the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car leader board. Evidently, Cruise contacted the show about a stint behind the wheel of the infamous Kia c'eed while in the UK. Both he and Diaz were in country for the debut of their new film "Knight and Day."

So far, we don't know how either of the two stars did on track, but we're betting Cruise managed to hold his own. It's no secret that the guy has a penchant for sports cars of just about every flavor. Besides, he starred in Days of Thunder.

The crew at Top Gear hasn't said exactly when we can expect to see the two go around the track, but we're betting it won't be too long before the segments air, possibly this Sunday.

      Cruise just wants to be able to upstage Gere in the hamster-lovin dept.

      "Look, I can fit a bigger hamster inside me"

      This should be interesting, considering Jezza's previous remarks about religions and his straightforwardness...
      • 4 Years Ago
      also...that is an Aprilia SXV disguised as a Ducati Hypermotard...
      • 4 Years Ago
      I thought you can not operate a vehicle if you are 4'2 or shorter.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Seriously. I wonder how they are going to modify the car, considering Diaz is a foot taller than him.

      One thing I do know is that after he befriended Paul Newman he got into cars big time, so I look forward to a pretty quick lap.
      I'd also love to see Eric Bana behind the wheel, another consummate gearhead.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Bana was on the show last series.

      Tom Cruise who.... yawn....
      • 4 Years Ago
      Is it just me or do Cameron's arms bend at really weird places?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Lol! That's actually just a doll used for the on film stunt.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Also -- she has no face.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's not a real person on the back. Nor is that really a Ducati. It's an Aprilia.
        • 4 Years Ago
        LOL check out her feet, totally deflated.
      • 4 Years Ago
      It's Cee'd....
      • 4 Years Ago
      That can't be Diaz on the bike, she's much taller than Cruise. Probably a stunt double.

      Jeremy Clarkson posted on Facebook today that this episode would be airing on Sunday. He also mentioned that this week we'd see James in the Veyron Super Sports, Hamster doing some sort of extreme competition piece and Jezza doing a fairly serious piece on Senna. He also said that having Cruise on was kind of the fulfillment of a bizarre ambition they'd had when they rebooted everything back in '02.

      The BBC (can't get much more authoritative than that) confirms both will be present on this Sunday's show:

      It's always a double-edged sword when a huge Hollywood star comes on the show, with a few exceptions.

      Usually, when Clarkson interviews some British dude I've never heard of, it's rather dull because I don't care, but the banter flows more earnestly and naturally and it ends up being entertaining. When Hollywood stars come on, Clarkson takes on a certain forced cordiality and is far more awkwardly modest than he'd be with say, Gambon or Boris Johnson.

      There's also the disconnect between British and American humor; they tend to grate against each other...though to his credit, Jezza has never had a train wreck interview anywhere near as cringe-worthy as Meg Ryan's on "Parkinson."

      I'll also say it's really annoying when instead of setting up a specific scene and then playing that clip from the Hollywood film, they play the same readily-accessible preview you'd see during TV commercials or online, with no further comment. Which is, well...lame. Maybe the BBC doesn't have the rights to play specific clips, but playing the generic preview adds nothing to the interview.

        I noticed that when Jay Leno was on.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @ Sea Urchin,

        I thought the Jay Leno interview went quite well but the one with Mark Wahlberg I thought was a total disaster.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I too always feel a sense of at least slight awkwardness whenever there is an American on the show. Not sure why.
