Tom Cruise feels the need, the need, for silly wordplay. On Monday’s “Tonight Show,” the “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” star played a little “Mad Lib Theater” with Jimmy Fallon.

Considering the man behind big-screen IMF agent Ethan Hunt barely got through a line of the sketch without breaking, it’s probably best that Cruise stick to action flicks. Leave the comedy to Fallon, who proves time and time again that maybe drama is a step too far for his own chops.

Watch the two play secret agents with a very confusing mission via the video above.
