Stop me if you’ve heard this one before:
1) B-List actress who used to star in crappy WB drama falls out of the spotlight.
C) Actress meets with Tom Cruise
7) Actress converts to Scientology.
%) Actress now the lead in a hard to swallow work of fiction with leading man Tom Cruise!
Ever since Keri Russell scored her plum supporting role in Mission Impossible III, the Felicity alumna has “suddenly become very interested” in (Scientology)” reports Radar Online. (Russell) is reportedly excited to learn more from the master (Cruise). She’s even been spotted buying books on Scientology and visiting the sect’s L.A. Celebrity Center, sources say.
Say what you will about Cruise and his insane alien ramblings, but it’s almost kind of admirable to be handed a pitch as 10 shades of crazy as scientology and still be able to sell it. No one has been that smooth since Hitler – a short dark-haired Austrian who said “we tall blond Germans should rule the world.” So, see, Tom Cruise and Hitler have more in common that you originally thought. And that was probably a lot. Sure, they have their quirks, but man, talk about salesman!
