Tom Cruise has cut a deal with a group that includes the owner of the Washington Redskins to finance the overhead costs of his film production company, sources close to the negotiations said today.

Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder, chairman of Six Flags Inc., is said to be a leading investor in an agreement that would give Cruise less than $3 million annually to finance staff and office expenses. In exchange, Snyder and the others will have the ability to finance movies developed by Cruise and his producing partner, Paula Wagner.

The two-year deal gives Cruise less than the $3 million a year that he reportedly turned down from Paramount Pictures to renew his longtime deal with the studio that expires Thursday.

Cruise and Wagner had been receiving an estimated $10 million annually from Paramount to cover their overhead under the soon to be expired deal.

When Cruise was publicly dismissed from Paramount by the studio's owner, Viacom Inc. Chairman Sumner Redstone, last week, Wagner claimed that the team had lined up financing from hedge funds to cover the much larger cost of developing movies. The team was seeking at least $100 million, according to sources. The name of the hedge fund remains unknown and Cruise's lawyer Bertram Fields said last week there was no hedge fund deal.

Several top banking sources said they had not heard of any deal struck by Cruise with a hedge fund.

Tom Cruise is a great entertainer, but a terrible actor. If he was a great actor he might be able to ride over all this shit with great performances, but he's not, so he won't. He'll show up in something wearing a different uniform again, playing the same character again, and it will tank.

tom cruise is not my favorite actor by any measure

but here is a list of films that I thoroughly enjoyed

# Born on the Fourth of July (1989) .... Ron Kovic
# Rain Man (1988) .... Charlie Babbitt
# Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994) .... Lestat de Lioncourt
# Magnolia (1999) .... Frank T.J. Mackey
# Eyes Wide Shut (1999) .... Dr. William 'Bill' Harford
# Minority Report (2002) .... Chief John Anderton
# Vanilla Sky (2001) .... David Aames
# War of the Worlds (2005) .... Ray Ferrier
# Collateral (2004) .... Vincent

i also enjoyed the MI films, but to a lesser degree


I really do not understand all the hate
towards him

my attitude is live and let live
unless one is doing harm to someone else

Magnolia is one of my fave films of all time!

Vanilla Sky & Eyes Wide Shut I also love.

I've never cared for him, ever! But then again I've never cared for Keanu, Brad, Clooney, Mc Conaughey [spelling waay off], Pierce Brosman, even though I'm sure each has made a movie or a couple I actually like.

Usually I read about stars lives with complete detachment, but if katie walked away, that's one split I'd truly be happy about. I think it stems from his cult-like influence and control issues. People like him dont deserve to succeed.
