DeepTomCruise’s de-aging technology is making its way to Hollywood

Side-by-side image showing Miles Fisher and a virtual Tom Cruise


You may or may not have heard of DeepTomCruise, but TikTok sure has. At the time of writing, the Metaphysic-owned parody account, which features actor Miles Fisher digitally transformed into none other than Tom Cruise himself, had 5 million followers, making it one of the social media platform’s most popular viral hits.

DeepTomCruise uses controversial deep fake technology to capture a virtual likeness of the Top Gun: Maverick star doing decidedly un-Cruise-like things, and the same visual sorcery was employed to bring Elvis back to life during last year’s edition of America’s Got Talent.
