Tom Cruise: A So You Think You Can Dance Judge?

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

If you’re still questioning Katie Holmes’ performance on So You Think You Can Dance, this tidbit may keep that jaw dropped. During a recent interview with E!, the actress said she agreed with choreographer/judge Mary Murphy: Tom Cruise would make the perfect SYTYCD guest judge.

Murphy said back in October:  “I happen to love Tom, and Tom loves dancing, so it would be great.” (But does that exactly qualify him to be a judge?) Holmes then seconded that opinion this weekend at a Dizzy Feet Foundation event. “He would be great. He really would,” Holmes claimed. (See what you started, Ellen?)

So if Cruise were to someday visit the program, does that mean we would get another dance number from Katie as well? “I don’t know. I don’t know, but it was a great time,” Holmes stated.

Golden Globe

One year after a strike-induced absence, the drinking resumed. Although the drew its usual set of followers tonight, this year’s program carried even more significance than usual. The reason? Heath Ledger.

With or without the Dark Knight nomination, the ceremony would have been interesting. Was this going to be the year a film about an Indian game show (Slumdog Millionaire) won top prize? Would either Meryl Streep (Mamma Mia, Doubt) or Kate Winslet (Revolutionary Road, The Reader) walk away with two awards? Could ‘s comeback performance in The Wrestler earn him a surprise win over Sean Penn (Milk)?

To find out the answer to these questions (and many more), you can read our detailed coverage after the jump!

Tom Cruise and Matt Lauer Reunite on the Today Show

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: NBC, Video,


Oh what three years and a change in public perception can do to an actor.

Back in June 2005, Tom Cruise’s press tour for War of the Worlds turned into a war of words between the actor and Matt Lauer. During a memorable appearance on the Today show, Cruise got into a fairly heated discussion about psychiatry (“pseudo-science”), antidepressants (“There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance”) and his critics (“I have never worried, Matt, about what other people think and what other people say.”) Tom also brought the underused word “glib” to everyone’s attention.
