Tom Cruise and Robert Downey Jr. teaming up for a Presidential comedy

5

I’ve always wanted Tom Cruise to play a President one day (and he came close at least once), and while I won’t be getting that anytime soon, Vulture is reporting here that Cruise might be protecting the POTUS in an upcoming comedy playing a member of the Secret Service, and the politician could be played by none other than Robert Downey, Jr. If that doesn’t sound like a film with lots of potential, I don’t know what is. After the jump I’ll talk a bit more about the project and my obsession with Cruise as a head of state, but just that casting alone has me incredibly interested…

A few years back, Tom Cruise was attached to two very different projects that would have had him leading the free world instead of saving it. One was a conspiracy thriller called ‘The 29th Amendment’, and one was more of a character study from the writer of ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love.’ Dan Fogelman. This comedy that might be coming together would have RDJ as the President, but Cruise certainly fits as a Secret Service Agent, and with Jay Roach directing, the potential for some fun is there. Stay tuned for more!
