Wilford Brimley turned 77-years old on Tuesday, which led to a lot of people around Moviefone HQ asking, "Wait, Wilford Brimley is only 77-years old?" He is. And what's actually quite interesting about Brimley's age is that Tom Cruise -- who will once again play super agent Ethan Hunt in December's 'Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol' -- is the same age that Brimley was when the Quaker Oats pitchman filmed 'Cocoon.' Let me repeat for effect: Tom Cruise -- starring in 'Mission Impossible 4' -- is the same age that Wilford Brimley was in 'Cocoon.'
