Tom Cruise is an American actor and producer. One of the highest-paid actors, Cruise has earned many awards throughout his career including the three Golden Globe Awards, in addition to nominations for the British Academy Film Award and three Academy Awards. The films he has made have earned him more than four billion dollars within North America and over $10.1 billion globally which makes him one of the top-grossing box office actors ever.
There’s a lookalike of him TikTok and many people are asking; “Who is the Tom Cruise look alike on TikTok?”
Who is the Tom Cruise look alike on TikTok?
Actor Miles Fisher is the Tom Cruise look alike on TikTok. He uses AI technology to doppelgänger of Tom Cruise on TikTok.
He shared another video today, 15th April which is currently in the trends.
Is deepfake legal?
The direct answer is No!. For instance; “If a man creates a pornographic deepfake of a woman and does not post it anywhere online or even show it to anyone else, he is still violating the woman’s consent by manipulating her image sexually without permission to do so”(Via Yake cyber leadership forum)
How a deepfake Tom Cruise on TikTok turned into a very real AI company
Earlier this year, videos of Tom Cruise started popping up on TikTok of the actor doing some surprisingly un-Tom-Cruise-like stuff: goofing around in an upscale men’s clothing store; showing off a coin trick; growling playfully during a short rendition of Dave Matthews Band’s “Crash Into Me.”
In one video, he bites into a lollipop and is amazed to find gum in the center. “Mmmmm,” he says to the camera. “That is incredible. How come nobody ever told me there’s bubblegum? Incredible!”
Despite the movie star hair, the eye-squinting and that trademark teeth-baring cackle, it wasn’t really Cruise. The 10 videos, which were posted between February and June, featured an artificial intelligence-generated doppelganger meant to look and sound like him. The deepfakes — a combination of the terms “deep learning” and “fake” — were created by visual and AI effects artist Chris Umé with the help of a Cruise stand-in, actor Miles Fisher.
This ersatz Cruise was so popular, racking up tens of millions of views on TikTok, that it inspired Umé to join up with others to launch a company called Metaphysic in June. It uses the same deepfake technology to make otherwise impossible ads and restore old film.
Metaphysic’s deepfake projects for clients have included a Gillette razor campaign that recreated a young Deion Sanders along with his 1989 draft-day look and a campaign for the Belgian Football Association that brought two deceased Belgium team managers back to life.
Much attention has been placed on the potential for using deepfakes for nefarious purposes, and for good reason. The first-known examples of deepfake videos, posted to Reddit in 2017, featured celebrities’ faces swapped with those of porn stars. Since then, the technology has often been used for creating non-consenual pornography.
Lawmakers have also warned that deepfakes could be used to mislead the American public.
Yet Umé and his cofounders are among a growing number of people who are convinced that the technology can also be fun and accomplish incredible feats for movies, ads, and other forms of media that were previously unthinkable even with the best special effects.
The Metaphysic founders envision using deepfakes to do everything from making older entertainers appear younger to creating video doubles of famous people that can be used to make commercials — or any type of content — without needing them to be physically on set. But as a recent controversy over the use of an AI-generated voice of the late chef and TV personality Anthony Bourdain shows, even entertainment uses of such controversial technology can raise eyebrows and ethical concerns.
“The technology is moving forward, whether anybody likes it, really,” Metaphysic cofounder Tom Graham, a tech entrepreneur who’s based in London, told CNN Business. The company’s goal, he said, is to “really, really focus on trying to develop our product in a way” that avoids adding to the harmful deepfakes already being created by others.
Umé, who previously worked on the pilot episode of deepfake web series “Sassy Justice” (from the creators of “South Park”), thinks the technology’s future is actually bright. “It’s a future where you have more freedom and more creative possibilities,” he said. (Via CNN)
