Funnyman Jamie Foxx faced the ultimate terror on the set of his new thriller COLLATERAL - he almost killed TOM CRUSE.

A car chase stunt almost turned deadly when Foxx lost control of the taxi cab his character was driving - and found himself hurtling towards Cruise's Mercedes.

Foxx recalls, "I hit the gas the cab goes straight head on into this Mercedes and the Mercedes lifts off the ground and goes off the set."

Cruise admits he was tossed around the car like a rag doll: "He just turns into it and my face was going up against the thing... I was hitting the roof, I was down on the ground."

Foxx quickly realised he wasn't the star of the film when cast and crew ran to check that Cruise was OK before rescuing him from his battered taxi.

He explains, "They were so worried that I had killed my man... Can you imagine all that money bouncing around in the back seat?"
