(Newser) – Tom Cruise in a musical? After prodding from Jay Leno last night, the star says he wouldn't mind following wife Katie onto the stage, Broadway World reports. "Yes, I do movies and everything, but I wouldn't say no to Broadway," said Cruise. Turns out, he got his start in showbiz by starring in his school’s production of Guys and Dolls. Later, Cruise broke out into “Blue Suede Shoes” to remind us that he can, in fact, sing.

The actor got more detailed on Entertainment Tonight Canada, reports People: “I always wanted to do a musical, and I'm glad musicals are now back in vogue. I gotta sing, I gotta dance and I'm going to figure all that out.”
