Tom Cruise: Food Fight!!!!!!

Tom Cruise: Food Fight!!!!!!

Since passing off his role in Edwin A. Salt to Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise is rumored to be joining the warmhearted comedy Food Fight.

The 46-year-old actor would play the role of a snooty New York chef who is forced to cook meals at a school cafeteria, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tom‘s move to genre of comedy comes after his much buzzed-about, movie-stealing performance in Tropic Thunder, in which he plays a fat, bald, over-the-top studio exec. The film opens in theaters everywhere this Wednesday, August 13.

    He’s a good actor but this sounds like a Jack Black role.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    ….`that’s good. he moved on to a bigger and better project.

  • Twifanatic Amanda

    That’s seriosuly funny that he’s in tropic thunder, I didn’t believe it at first but I can’t wait to see how he does cause that movie looks hilarious.

  • Halli

    Ew. Tom is trying to get back into the good graces of the American audiecnces by taking on comedic roles he is clearly unsuitable for (the guy is not funny at all and its even harder to pull off a good comedy than a drama).

  • Abbyyy


  • yuck

    He’s got the fat and over the top part down pat.

  • Jill

    He “passed off” on his role in Edwin A. Salt? Is that a politic way of saying the studios wanted Angelina for the part and gave Tommy-boy the heave-ho? Just asking…

  • anon

    Why doesn’t he just retire already?

    Only in Hollyweird would you be able to join a cult and have it be portrayed in the media as a religion.

    He asked 20 mill he couldn’t get so he bowed out . This must have clearly hurt his ego when he found out he got replaced by a woman his name attached to the project over a year. Owch.

    How much is the twit being paid for Food Fight? Anyone know?

  • Dolly

    No way is Tom almost-no-sense-of-humor Cruise starring in a comedy. This is his PR machine trying to capitalize off the Tropic Thunder buzz and making a story up. I’ll send him a perfumed love letter written on a photocopy of my ass if this actually happens.

  • omgsh

    His lil Suri is Paparazzi fight !!

  • JJ

    I wouldn’t pay cruise 2cents to do anything but disappear.
    Can’t stand him. Can’t stand the thousands of ads plastered EVERYWHERE for him and the cult website.
    Will he be able to BUY back favor with the public?
    Not with me.
    Not for any price.

  • LuckyL

    Um, “Tropic Thunder” won’t be successful or funny because of Cruise, it’ll be successful and funny because of very funny or bankable actors like Ben Stiller, Jack Black, and Robert Downey Jr. Cruise hasn’t been seen in one promo. I’m just mad he’ll get a piece of that already successful pie. Lame.

  • um

    Sounds like Tom is getting a bucketful of dollars for phoning this one in.

    Cute plot though.

    He’s keeping it moving isn’t he?

  • LuckyL

    Where the f*** has the buzz been anyway? Not on my television!

    $20 M for Food Fight?


    Yeah. He. Can. Eat. All. The. Food. And. Take. Some.

    Good. Way. To. Get. Fatter.


  • McLovin

    #12, that’s not true at all. The studio even debunked it but I’m afraid that everyone won’t care and will continue believing this falsehood.

    What an idiotic thing to say, #15.

  • bet betty

    Don’t. Be. Surprised. If. Thunder. Is. Bomb.

  • tsk

    new movie? is he even finish with his Valkyrie which was supposed to be out last summer?

  • fyi

    Perez has new pix of tomkat. Tom has on high heeled sneakers. Katie is 2x taller than he is even in the high heels.

  • poh!

    so he plays a chef who cooks in a school cafeteria? zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • shorty

    i cant stand this idiot

  • KarenA

    This photo makes me sad. Tom has/had such beautiful hair. Why on earth does he insist on letting the media photograph him with hair that’s less than. Remember “Vanilla Sky”? That beautiful poster of him with the soft clouds around him? I want that back. I know he can still do it. Or that chiseled look he sported in MI:2. And basically every single one of his films prior to… I guess recently. Argh!

  • what a jerk

    Lets get real here. Cruise didn’t pass on Salt. He was dumped and now he’s stuck doing ridiculous comedy movies cause no one else wants him.

    My how the mighty have fallen. LMAO!

  • Marieme

    Oh man! This sounds so funny. Tom will kill it in this type of role. Love the idea!
