Paramount Dumps Tom Cruise

Postby Dr. Duran Duran » Wed Aug 23, 2006 6:52 pm

My respect for Paramount is at a record high...

Tom Cruise has been unceremoniously dumped by his Paramount studio partners for his sofa-jumping antics on TV. Revered Paramount boss Sumner Redstone has ended his company's 14-year relationship with Cruise/Wagner Productions because he no longer wants to be associated with the movie star. Redstone tells newspaper The Wall Street Journal he believes Cruise's bizarre antics on TV shows like Oprah and Today had a negative effect on the box office take of Paramount's 2005 summer blockbuster War Of The Worlds. He snipes, "As much as we like him personally, we thought it was wrong to renew his deal... His recent conduct has not been acceptable to Paramount."

I could've sworn this was old news. I think the news broke out that Paramount dumped that sorry no-talent beatnik Tom Cruise yesterday or Monday. Oh well, Tommy Boy deserved the axe. Tom, we get it, sex with someone 20 years younger than you is amazing.

Yeah, heard this on NPR yesterday morning. Didn't even think it was worth mentioning. Cruise is like the Terrell Owens of Hollywood now... no one wants him, but you know someone will pick him up.

Another reason cited was that he criticized some actress (I forget who but I think it's Brooke Shields) for taking anti-depressents. Apparently Scientology is into brainwashing people the old fashioned way.

Amazing. I mean this dude is a complete wack job, but really is he any crazier then some of these other people in acting? With that said good job Paramount. I mean I was never a big fan of his, but I know of a lot of people who wouldn't watch movies if he was in them.
