Tom Cruise did his own trick shots for the film, except for one, in which he had to jump two balls to sink another. Scorsese said he could have let Cruise learn the shot, but it would have taken two extra days of practice, holding up production and costing thousands of dollars. The shot was instead performed by professional player Mike Sigel.
Thanks to Zach Murphy
The Balabushka that was given to Tom Cruise was in fact a modified Joss J-18 cue as the director was afraid of damaging a Balabushka when Cruise was twirling it around in one of the scenes. The major difference between the J-18 and the cue in the movie is there are no diamond inlays in the cue in the movie. You can see this in the scene where Eddie first gives Vincent the cue and the pan accross the cue it shows no diamond inlays. Joss re-released the cue as N-07 in the late 90's.
