Tom Cruise tortured Simon Pegg for two days on the set of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

(NBC)

In the stifling heat of Morocco where he and Simon Pegg filmed much of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Tom Cruise executed the same prank over two days that had Pegg later realizing he was simply being kept alive so that Cruise could continue torturing him.

The Shaun of the Dead actor dropped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday to share that Cruise liked to sneakily turn on Pegg’s seat warmers while they were driving. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but the prank was genius in its simplicity — the way Pegg tells it, it seems as if he had been driven halfway to madness before he figured out what Cruise was up to.

Check out the rest of the interview below to find out how Cruise got his comeuppance.
