Don’t look now but the 57 year-old actor known for doing his own stunts is trying to get himself killed again.
Nevermind that he already broke his ankle showing off for us while filming Mission Impossible: Fallout.
Nevermind that he’s already shown us how to cling to the side of 110 story building with no harness and the right way to hitch a ride on the outside of plane , now he’s going to 25,000 feet to do a HALO jump.
HALO (High Altitude Low Open) parachuting is used by special operations forces to clandestinely infiltrate hostile territory. You basically jump out of a plane that is both out of radar range and high enough to give you a decent amount of time in freefall. Then you vector your glide path to the landing zone.
It’s easily the most dangerous way a person can jump out of a plane, unless you consider jumping out without a parachute a way.
Do I need to say it? This is 110% A-Game with no phoning it in:
100 practice jumps? OK, we get it, Tom: You’re cool, you’re badass, blah, blah, blah.
And you just sold about another two million tickets worldwide.
