Prank master Tom Cruise is making the rounds in late-night this week plugging his latest "Mission Impossible" film, "Rouge Nation."  Tuesday night, he stopped by "The Daily Show" to have a chat with Jon Stewart, number-one fan of the movie franchise. While Stewart agreed that hanging off of planes and shooting aliens is super cool (especially for a 53-year-old with a full head of hair, to be doing) he also mourned the loss of the "old" Cruise. "Remember yearning Tom Cruise, vulnerable Tom Cruise, 'You complete me' Tom Cruise? Remember that guy? Where's that guy?" Stewart asked the actor.
