Tom Cruise, already a master in the mystic arts of Scientology, has given English magician Paul Zenon a call with a view to getting a few tips. Cruise, in London to promote Minority Report (2002), saw Zenon on a documentary about Jasper, a war-time magician who Cruise may be portraying in an upcoming project. Jasper is famous for fooling the Nazis into bombing a mock-up of Alexandria harbour, hiding the entire Suez Canal from the Luftwaffe and creating a phantom army that Rommel lined his troops up to oppose. Zenon initially thought that someone was pulling his leg when he got the call, but was eventually convinced. Perhaps Tom's hoping to create the illusion of height?
