Trash Paramount Gives Tom Cruise the Boot
Tom Cruise’s big blabby mouth and psychotic Scientological proselityzing have finally led to a concrete punishment: Paramount Pictures has announced the cessation of its 14-year relationship with Cruise’s film production company due to Cruise’s “unaccetable” offscreen behavior.
“As much as we like him personally, we thought it was wrong to renew his deal,” said Viacom chairman Sumner Redstone in The Wall Street Journal. “His recent conduct has not been acceptable to Paramount.”

To add insult to injury, Paramount also announced its signing of a two-picture deal with professional Cruise-bashers Matt Stone and Trey Parker, who’ll create two live-action features for the studio.
