Tom Cruise, Emilio Estevez and country star Randy Travis are among the extras gunned down in the finale of cult western Young Guns.

Cruise agreed to be part of the final battle scene when he visited pal Estevez on the set of the 1988 film and realised he had never taken a bullet on camera.

Travis appeared as a thank you for recording a song for the film that was never used.

And Estevez joined extras for the shoot-out because he was bored on the set. Ironically, the actor is one of the lead good guys in the film - and he's actually seen shooting at himself in the finale.
