Sometimes, “Glee” guys just have to be guys. That’s why they channeled Tom Cruise for some performances in Season 4. Watch this exclusive video from the season’s DVD collection to see the “Top Gun” and “Risky Business” action.
In the clip, several of the guys talk about their inspiration in Tom Cruise, especially in the movies they’re emulating. This is fair, considering how iconic the actor’s roles in “Risky Business” and “Top Gun” were. Even without actual jet planes of any sort, anyone seeing the New Directions guys would know what movie that is.
And everyone obviously knows the white dress shirt/sunglasses slide from “Risky Business.”
Some of the guys — particularly Jacob Artist, apparently — were a little nervous to strip down on the bottom for their performances. But in the end it seemed to be very much worth it. What else could they do? There’s no “Risky Business” with pants on.
The “Glee” Season 4 DVD collection will be available on Tuesday, Oct. 1. New episodes of the show air Thursdays at 9 p.m. on FOX.
