Cruise in Star Trek?

So the rumor goes that J.J. Abrams might be the only person on the planet who doesn't think that his name alone will draw asses to seats in a cinema showing one of his films. Apparently he thinks he needs a major name to cameo in STAR TREK and apparently that name is Tom Cruise. I'm not going to talk about whether or not Cruise is insane, the leader of a global cult or anything about him jumping on Oprah's couch like it was his father's talk show. That wouldn't be classy at all. Instead I'll just tell you that according to sources, Cruise will play Captain Christopher Pike, who was James T. Kirk's predecessor as captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise and Mr. Spock's first commanding officer. And also, I don't really think Cruise is crazy, I really like the guy. MAGNOLIA should have earned him an Oscar.
Extra Tidbit: Cruise's last major cameo was in AUSTIN POWERS IN GOLDMEMBER.
