Tom wore a fitted, black long-sleeved button down as he arrived, sporting the sleeves rolled up to his elbows.

He coupled the shirt with a pair of fitted black trousers, finishing off the look with shiny, black dress shoes.

In a move reminiscent of another one of the actor's classic films - Top Gun, 1986 - he hid his eyes behind a pair of Aviator sunglasses.

He wore his tousled, brown hair in a center part, with wisps falling onto his face as he leaned over to sign autographs.

Tom was appearing on the show to promote upcoming film Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, which has already been getting great reviews.

Deadline's Pete Hammond gushed, 'I thought it would be hard to top Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, but this franchise just keeps getting better.'

'The latest edition, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is not just the best movie of the summer, it is the best summer movie of the summer, with its smart script and direction from Christopher McQuarrie, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Usual Suspects who has a long-standing relationship with star Tom Cruise having penned Valkyrie, Edge Of Tomorrow and Jack Reacher (which he also directed).'

The writer added, 'This fifth go-around for the IMF squad doesn’t just rely on trying to top itself with one outrageous stunt after another like many of these franchises attempt.'

'There are plenty of mind-blowing action sequences here beginning with the James Bond-like pre-credits sequence in which Cruise hangs from a plane as it rolls down the runway and takes off. (That has been much publicized for the fact Cruise did it himself with no green-screen help.)'

'But for me, it is the cat-and-mouse games and verbal sparring that really sets this film apart from others in the genre.' 

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, which also stars Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, and Rebecca Ferguson, hits theaters on July 31.
