Is it just me, or does Tom Cruise snub most of the big Hollywood events? Why does he?

Maybe he knows that overexposure can really be a killer if you want longevity in your acting career! I mean, he is still working and getting paid big bucks, just as he did when he first started out. There’s something to his method… yeah.

We are Tom fans here at TheCount! Of course we’ll be watching the Oscars!

Nicolas Cage Acting Career Looking Up Again!

nicholas cage Nicolas Cage Acting Career Looking Up Again!

Nicolas Cage wasn’t in the best place financially earlier this year. Some of his houses and cars were repossessed from him, he owed the IRS millions, he was sued for millions and he wasn’t getting work either. Now, he’s making his big comeback in Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, which is in theaters right now.

Cage was also just confirmed to star in the Ghost Rider sequel, which is rumored to be titled Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance. That’s not all the movies he’s set to be in. He’s got 1 movie in completion, 3 movies in post-production, 2 in pre-production and 2 more that are in the works still.

His career is looking up again! Way to go Nic!

Morgan Freeman-Driving Mrs. Meyer

According to the LA Times:

Demaris Meyer, the woman who was riding in the car actor Morgan Freeman crashed last year, tells the press that the actor had been drinking a lot that night, according to TMZ.

But she’s not his mistress. Although she might have been on her way to filling that position.

At a news conference Wednesday, Meyer told reporters that when she met him that night at dinner, she saw that “throughout the course of dinner and afterward drinks were consumed by Freeman.”

She later met up with him at a friend’s home, where he “had at least one more drink.” So of course, why not hop in the car with a clearly inebriated celebrity?

She says it was only after being offered a place to stay — at his home, or rather, the guest house — that she got in the car with him. Oh yeah, we’ve all heard that old saw.

But then, darn it, Morgan lost control of the car and crashed around 11:30 p.m.

Meyer says she got a broken wrist, scapula, a torn labrum (what on earth is that?) and cuts and bruises.
She’s suing Morgan for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, permanent disability for short-term memory loss and damages. Oh, and short-term memory loss.

What intrigues me about this story is the photo of the wreck.

Is that a Delorean? I think Morgan Freeman was trying to go back to 1985 when he married his wife Myrna and say “Don’t do it you fool…you drone…be single and a drunk. Also, don’t hesitate on that Shawshank script…that was a good move”.
