Tom Cruise has dropped out of the spy thriller " Edwin A. Salt " [ no reason given, but, probably, wanted too much and was crap at it anyway ] to be replaced by.. Angelina Jolie..why not? Angie has such a badass image she could get away with playing the lead originally male..sex-role reversal is not exacly new... I mean Judi Dench took over for Bernard Lee as M... Peter Bradshaw has ' suggested' that Melanie Griffith could have been a better choice for the Terminator[ trix?] than Arnie - same vacent stare and ' low level acting ' and Sandra Bernhard and Joan Rivers as Ms. Blone and Ms White in Reservoir Dogs... but, hey.. Angelina should re-make all of Tom's films... She would have made a much better pilot in Top Gun and ' riding someone's tail ' would take on a whole new meaning and dispel all that homoeroticism surrounding Tom and Val's scenes... and ,she would have been a lot taller.. Could play the Von Stauffenberg part in Tommy's Nazi film, too.. she looks way better in an eye patch - Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, anyone?? I hear Tommy is prepping to do a sequel to Top Gun BTW, expect it to be available at the dump bin at Walmart real soon... anyone care to revisit a film or two an suggest some inspired ' distaff ' casting?? Wild Geese: Selma Hyak, Scarlett Johannsen, Jessica Alba, Mila Jojovitch?
