Date: 1st December 2001
Superstar TOM CRUISE is being wooed to host a old style celebrity revue show for America's armed forces overseas. The actor, no stranger to military roles himself, is wanted by DREAMWORKS executive JEFFREY KATZENBERG to head a travelling Hollywood show to boost troops' morale.
Katzenberg was one of the key figures behind AMERICA: A TRIBUTE TO HEROES, the sombre celebrity packed TV fundraiser for victims of the terrorist attacks on America in September (11SEP01). However his plans are still in the early stages, as Cruise's publicist PAT KINGSLEY comments,
"Tom's busy until December 22 (01) doing press for VANILLA SKY (2001). I don't know anything about it. " (CPT/WNWE/NFA)
