The 'Top Gun' star is going to make his first appearance as a presenter at the SAG Awards on Sunday, January 27, 2008.
The 2007 Screen Actors Guild Awards' list of presenters keeps getting better and better as it is reported that Tom Cruise has joined the stars studded lineup to present the trophies. The three-time Academy Award nominee is allegedly going to hand out the desirable Actor awards at the Shrine Auditorium.
His presenting in the upcoming awards ceremony will be his first appearance as a presenter at the SAG Awards. Still, it won't be his first experience of becoming awards presenter as he previously has performed similar duty at the 2007 Academy Awards' gala.
The 45-year-old husband of Katie Holmes has recently become the news headlines following the leaking of a video showing the actor speaking about the virtues of Scientology in the Internet. Following the leaking of the video, Cinematical.com reported that Funny or Die has posted a video containing the parody of Cruise's Scientology video featuring Jerry O'Connell.
With the joining of Cruise, the 14th Annual SAG Awards has become one of the most star studded events of Hollywood's awards season following the forced cancellation of other kudos ceremonies due to the on-going writers strike. The presenters appearing to honor performances in five film and eight television categories include Kate Beckinsale, Steve Carell, Russell Crowe, Kate Hudson, Matthew McConaughey, Forest Whitaker and John Travolta.
