A British news paper, The Sun, is reporting that Star Wars: Episode VII will feature a cameo by Tom Cruise. They are reporting that Cruise met with his former MIssion Impossible director, in London, to talk about appearing in the film.
Now before we get all crazy, does anyone really believe that Tom Cruise will be seen in Star Wars: Episode VII? Cruise could have stopped by to see them filming. Had drinks with his old director. Maybe even met with Abrams about the next Mission Impossible film, which Abrams is producing!
Nothing would be more jarring than to see Tom Cruise in a line of Jedi being spoken to by Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker. It would take us all out of the film. Stunt cameos often do that. If Cruise were to appear in the film, he’ll probably be under a helmet. There are a lot of those in Star Wars or maybe in a mask. If you think back, N’Sync was in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones. Did you ever seem on screen? No.
Don’t freak out Maniacs. Be more worried about Han Solo (Harrison Ford) rolling around in a wheel chair.
