    Would Cruise be on a impossible mission during his cameo?

    Kenny Baker is old, I will agree. But at least give the guy a chance to play R2 one last time before giving the role away.

    As long as he is shot, he can come aboard.

    They'll have to use a step ladder if he has any romantic scenes with Artoo...

    Don't mention the T word or Tom will get upset.

    Nope. He's too big of a star that it would be a distraction. Either way, no, no, no.

    Probably the stupidest rumor so far.

    Internets already told us in the Mark Hamill thread, Cruise will be playing Luke's mechanical right hand.

    ** I thought about linking to the Cruise rumor, then, too, but I couldn't be bothered. I mean, come on, Tom Cruise?**

    Here's how you make this rumor smart. Which is, of course, why the Sun didn't do it. Because they're The Sun.

    Rian Johnson went on a podcast shortly after Brothers Bloom came out, and they asked him why Tom Cruise was in the thank yous at the end of the credits (which he was), and Rian explained that at one point, when the script was circulating around town, Tom took interest in it and gave Rian a call. Rian didn't think Tom was going to be in it, or that he would produce it, but you don't turn down Tom Cruise when he wants to have lunch. So they set up a lunch meeting and shortly through the meeting it became obvious Tom wasn't going to be in the movie, but then, instead of asking for the check and bailing out, the lunch became a five-hour story conference in which Johnson & Cruise essentially re-broke the story, leading to extensive rewrites on Rian's part, which led to the movie becoming what it was when it finally got made.

    So that's why Tom Cruise got a thank you at the end of Brothers Bloom.

    NOW: If any ONE of the websites reporting this rumor had done even a modicum of research they could have used that little bit of trivia to fuel speculation and keep their story alive for longer than the 3 seconds it takes to come up with a Kenny Baker joke. They could have established, however tenuous, a scenario in which Abrams & Cruise are meeting about a Star Wars movie due to their mutual connection to Rian Johnson, and maybe are in early stages of discussing a role in Episode VIII.

    But instead, they were just like HURR HE HAD LUNCHABLES WITH THE LOST GUY and slapped the words Star Wars on the story.

    How did you go from T to Jew? I mean T for Tall as in Tom Cruise supposedly has an inferiority issue when it comes to anyone on set being taller then he is.

    "Harrison Ford will either have to be filmed from the waist up or written out…" [face_rofl]

    Jeez….the steadily increasing stupidity of these rumors is like a vice tightening on my head. I feel like my brain will cave in at any moment.

    Really?? I mean, really???

    Good to know people in the media aren't flailing around and hitting panic buttons all over the place. What a mess that would be….:rolleyes:
