Tom Cruise and Reese Witherspoon to knock cowboy boots?

Say what you will about Tom Cruise and his affinity for alien gods, but as an actor, the man has played more iconic characters than nearly anyone else alive, and every time a new project is announced of his, I’m still looking forward to it. Yes, even after VALKYRIE.

According to the LA Times, Cruise and Reese Witherspoon are circling a project called PAPER WINGS where a champion rodeo cowboy falls for an up-and-coming country singer. Sure, Witherspoon’s Oscar tells us she can play that part fairly well, but what of Cruise as a cowboy?

Lord knows the man can’t (or won’t) do accents (hence his perfect English speaking Nazi in VALKYRIE) so I’m not sure if southern drawl will suit him. Maybe he’ll be one of those Northern California rodeo champions.

The project has been around for some time, but with country-themed CRAZY HEART kicking ass this year, it would seem Sony thinks it’s the right time to get it made.

Can you see Cruise as a cowboy?

Extra Tidbit: I mean look at the manís IMDB page, heís a legend whether you want to admit it or not.

Cruise has been my favorite actor since I was a little kid. I've always been inspired by the fact that he does almost all of his own stunts and his enthusiasm about acting and films. He's got the best "yell" and "flipout scenes" in Hollywood too. I'd love to see him in this role. He's mentoned in many interviews too about how much he wants to do a Western type project too, this is a good start.

He did accents in "Born on the Fourth of July," "Far and Away," and "Interview with the Vampire." So it's been a while.

Did anyone else "do an accent" in "Valkyrie"? I could name some very excellent actors who almost never do accents, but while I do like Cruise a lot, it could be misconstrued that I'd be likening him to the ranks of Hackman or Caine. And I don't. Not yet anyway.

Separate it

Tom Cruise is completely money as an actor. He is a screen legend and the guy deserves it because he brings life and energy to his roles. I'm sure that lots of actors/actresses are a-holes in real life and we wouldn't want to hang with them. Tom is in a goofy ass religion and wears it on his sleeve. Fine. It hasn't affected his work - he is still the man. My only relationship to him is through his work - I don't care what sort of crazy shit he does in his personal life.
