Hollywood’s Secret Of The Day
The word on the street, and by “the street” I mean Hollywood Boulevard where nothing film related really ever happens other than tourists overpaying for crap Hollywood Sign souvenirs that are invariably made in China, or the yokels that are fresh off the bus from Omaha who are stupid enough to wander West of La Brea or East of Vine street and get mugged or car jacked. Or both. Oh yeah, that word….
Oh yeah, that “word” referred to above is that Tom Cruise got the lead part in “The Edge Of Tomorrow” after Warner Brothers realized they could save those big bucks that it would cost to hire hundreds of muscular extras to play 6’4″ tall combat ready looking soldiers, because with Mr. Cruise in the scene the rest of the cast need only be about 5’7″ and as macho as Arnold Stang*.
*Google Image Search Arnold (not exactly Schwarzenegger) Stang
