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!
