Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson looking to star in El Presidente
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson are looking to reteam on the comedy EL PRESIDENTE in which Cruise would play a secret service agent assigned to protect a former President that’s a shell of his former self. But the two have to team up when a threat is made against the former President’s life. Nicholson would play the crazy, more wild role that would offset Cruise’s more straight-laced, idealistic character. Neither actor has officially signed on the dotted line, but offers are out to each.
I’ve waited a long time to see Tom Cruise (other than as Les Grossman) in a comedy role. I personally think he can do anything, but I was hoping for something better than this. This feels too much like something we’ve seen before. But with that in mind, if both actors actually do sign on the dotted line, I think their talent and charisma alone should make this film enjoyable.
