Ahhhh…trying to bring in the younger audience is he… The Crazy thinks by doing that the movie might not be a stinker. Ohhh…what a smart Crazy….but unfortunately it isn’t going to work. Nobody wants to see a movie with Crazy in it or even a movie that has Crazy’s stink around it.

I think any young actor should be advised to RUN away from anything to do with Crazy!

Christopher Egan would be my first choice

# 5

# 6

Anthony. But they’ll pick Christopher.

…Kevin Zegers blows. just horrible in everything. he’s by far the worst actor of the 3 named.

# 8

Anthony Mackie is our choice.

# 9

Here’s hoping Mr. Mackie gets it. Loved him THE HURT LOCKER and SHE HATES ME. Team Mackie all the way.

Omg tom crusie like ugly rats and i know other

There was talk that Paramount gave Cruise a smaller role and is bringing in a younger guy. Could this be the younger operative put in place for future Mission Impossibles? I betcha Cruise has a smaller part as the Senior officer and whoever gets this part becomes the star. I hope so. Cruise is over and done!! Look how bad Knight and Day did!

oh no I actually like them all..if I have to choose Anthony Mackie-he’s a great actor but then Christopher Egan is pretty cute..lol.. ok Anthony Mackie. he’s so underrated!

Ohhh.. how the mighty have fallen!! Not only did they basically tell Tom that he does not get his usual pay day but if he wants this movie green lit he needs to take the absolute minimum pay allowed by SAG contract but NOW he has to share the screen with someone younger and hotter to help fill seat??? What was Taylor Lautner’s dance card full?

Unbelievable!! LMAO!!!

Oh Tommy.. how is the ego today.. need a few extra inches in your lift tennis shoes?

is this really a competition? kevin zegers – end of discussion. infamously cool – you are infamously a moron. he’s a great actor. you’re an idiot.

KEVIN ZEGERS!!

Or maybe it’s just a role meant to be cast by a youngster and there’s no ulterior motive, #3?

That was rumor long since debunked, #12. No one cast is taking over this franchise. It’ll be rebooted before that ever happens.

Cruise is still the main attraction and Knight and Day didn’t do badly.

That’s now why a youngster is being cast, #16. No one is replacing anyone and certainly not these talented but unknown actors who couldn’t even fill seats for that reason.

TRUTH HURTS. @ 08/25/2010 at 9:00 pm

I hope Papa Doc from 8 Mile get the role.

Duh!! OfCorse Kevin Zegers !! ;P

Anthony Mackie would be a great choice.

Opposite Tom? Is Tom gay in the movie?

“Knight and Day didn’t do badly”.. what? Knight & Day was considered a colossal slaughter. They opened it on a Wednesday meaning they thought it would do War of the Worlds.. Mission Impossible.. Harry Potter numbers. They seriously expected a huge 5 day opening box office pay day like think Inception numbers and they barely scraped together 20 million. Jolie had a regular Friday opening .. meaning a three day box office opening for Salt (37 million) and brought in more then Knight & Day could scrape together in 5 days. Hell it took Knight & Day 9 days to equal 3 for Jolie’s Salt.

And Knight & Day still has not broken even and made the studio money. The first week a movie is out the studio gets about 85% of box office and then it starts sliding in favor of the movie theater. Foreign box office only about 45 to 50% of ticket sales go to the studio. Plus you have to add marketing of Knight & Day into it existing production budget.. so even after all this time the studio hasn’t broken even for Knight & Day.

Mission impossible was dependent on the success of Knight & Day and when that joined the list of Tom Cruise failures.. they said the only way he could get it made was to not take a payday upfront. He will ONLY make money of the movie does. And now even that is not enough for the studio.. they want a younger male to fill the seats.

That is not good for Cruise. His day of green lighting movies are over. The studio does not think he is a good investment anymore.

My choices are not on the list, he should have someone like Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, or Michael Keaton.
