Tom Cruise is scheduled to appear on the "The Oprah Winfrey Show" next week to coincide with
the 3rd anniversary of his couch-jumping incident the 25th anniversary of Cruise's break-through film "Risky Business" which made him a movie star.
His last appearance on the show, when he jumped on the couch to profess his love for Katie Holmes, spawned countless jokes and parodies about the incident.
Winfrey will interview Cruise from his home in Telluride, Colorado, for the first show on May 2, which will cover his "family, his life and the future," according to Oprah's Harpo Productions. Then on May 5, Cruise will appear in Winfrey's Chicago studio.
Cruise's last appearance on the show was something he'd rather forget. He became the butt of jokes after a May 2005 show where he repeatedly jumped up and down on the couch while grinning wildly, throwing his arms in the air, and pronouncing that his love for Katie was "beyond cool."
