Hold onto those sofa cushions: Tom Cruise is coming back to The Oprah Winfrey Show.

“Tom will be doing the Oprah show,” Cruise’s rep Julie Polkes tells PEOPLE. “He is really looking forward to it.”

The show, which will appear in two parts during May sweeps, will celebrate Cruise’s career since his breakout role 25 years ago in Risky Business.

One part will be shot in-studio before a live audience. In the other, Cruise will show Winfrey around his Telluride mountain retreat and do a portion of the interview at the home.

In May 2005, Cruise memorably jumped up and down on Winfrey’s sofa and proclaimed, “I’m in love!” with his then-girlfriend Katie Holmes, whom he later married.

Cruise’s return to The Oprah Winfrey Show was first reported by — Elizabeth Leonard and Mike Fleeman
