Tom Cruise May Join Beyoncé in A Star Is Born

Tom Cruise arrived in Tokyo, Japan today to hundreds of screaming fans.  The Hollywood star touched down at Haneda International Airport where fans had been waiting for hours for a chance to the 'Mission Impossible' Star. Tom singed autographs and stopped for photos for nearly an hour, completing the first of the many missions he has on his 27 hour jaunt through the Land of The Rising Sun.

Who will star opposite Beyoncé in A Star Is Born? Over the last year or so, that role has been difficult to lock down: Once upon a time, Russell Crowe was attached, then Clint Eastwood took over as director and approached Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale to no avail. Now, reports Deadline, the helmer is in talks with Tom Cruise for the male lead. That would definitely be something! Deadline also claims that Eminem (!) was once in the mix, as was Will Smith ... which, just give the role to Will Smith, you guys. Seriously!
