With Tom Cruise on TV more than Paddy McGuinness recently, Paddy Power News has done some research into the real reason everyone’s favorite Scientologist shows up at any sporting event you can think of.
The Hollywood A-lister has been spotted at some of this summer’s biggest sporting events in recent weeks – on center court at Wimbledon, then in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley, then he was in the Mercedes garage at Silverstone last weekend, which suggests a Days of Thunder sequel was in the works – don’t expect Nicole Kidman to appear in this one.
And reports suggest he was previously approached as he tried to hide in the Tokyo Olympic Stadium ahead of the games, just so he could see his mug there on TV as well.
However, our sources can reveal that he’s actually trying to kick off a reboot of the hit ’80s crime show Miami Vice – with some of the biggest names in the sport in the world on his list of possible stars.
After watching some of England’s group matches at Euro 2020 and the reaction from fans, Cruise was “blown away” saying that several members of the Three Lions squad were “wasting their time playing football – they should be in Tinseltown to make real dough ”
After the Wembley final, Cruise is said to be rappelling into the Three Lions locker room through a ventilation duct after kicking the asses of several ticketless thugs just to sympathize with Gareth Southgate’s men, before picking out a few players he would be keen to do a read, with the latest photographs on Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s Instagram page suggesting he has a nailed role,
The movie star had also taken note of Raheem Sterling’s acting skills against Denmark in the semifinals, though Harry Maguire’s stiff, still forehead was deemed “too stiff” during his casting. Cruise was also told it would take at least 8 hours of makeup each day for the head in the middle half to be roughly the same size as everyone on the show, putting an end to Slabhead’s Hollywood dreams – at least. until they make this Easter Island movie.
However, Jack Grealish is expected to act as the calf doubler for any scenes involving a shot of a character’s lower limbs, such as the shapely appeal of their muscles.
And one player who certainly won’t be featured is Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson, who was overheard at the post-match dinner saying: ‘No way I was seen dead wearing a pair of sneakers’, a sneaky search at Don Johnson, who was the sole responsible for the men walking around UK town centers on a Saturday night wearing fabric shoes that couldn’t remove beer stains.
Henderson also objected to filming scenes with a pet alligator. “Honestly, Bobby Fermino’s shiny helicopters scare me quite a bit, I’m not going to go near something with teeth like that,” he reportedly said.
Cruise’s visit to Wimbledon had equally mixed results, where he hoped to spend some time with former champion Andy Murray and assess his potential for a role, but after listening to him give a motivational speech in the ‘pregnant with the member beforehand, he apparently gave up on the idea. claiming that he “couldn’t understand a word that fucking guy said.”
Although his trip to Silverstone may still yield results. “I think Lewis (Hamilton) and Max (Verstappen) have the perfect chemistry to play the roles of Crockett and Tubbs,” Cruise told assistants at the British Grand Prix on Sunday as the two collided.
“That’s exactly the kind of passion I want to see in these guys,” he said, “although they may have to take a pay cut if they want to be on the show.”
