It seems that Tom Cruise is one of the few actors that is not exaggerating when he says he does his own stunts. As the video below shows, the actor is performing a stunt on the Burj Khalifa for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Called "the world's tallest building" the stunt seems to involve his character of Ethan Hunt has he runs and walks along the outside of the building. (via AICN)

It looks like JJ Abrams producing plate just got a little bit lighter as Undercovers was officially canceled by NBC for bad ratings. Three episodes remains, probably burned off on Saturday after November sweeps ends. Not really sure why the show was given a shot on a different night but NBC's inability to schedule has been a major issue for the network for years now.
NBC is pulling the plug on J.J. Abrams' spy series Undercovers.
The network is declining to pick up a full season of the show.
Undercovers will air three more episodes in the coming weeks. The addition three episodes in the can "will likely" air at some point, but there's no date set.
Undercovers broke the mold by casting two black leads as the show's main characters. But middling reviews and declining ratings made the show increasingly destined for the chopping block. Last night's airing only delivered 5.8 million viewers and a 1.3 adult demo rating.
