Sports star Michael Jordan takes the challenge.
Standing in shades next to director Christopher McQuarrie of Mission: Impossible 5 , Cruise accepted the chilly challenge that came his way from Hugh Jackman and the cast and crew of Pan.
The man claimed to have no bucket, and hence may have used this small bucket of ice and cold water hitting him.
