Tom Cruise Could Be Beyonce Knowles' Leading Man in 'A Star Is Born'


The 'Valkyrie' actor is in talks to join the Clint Eastwood-directed movie, playing a musician who falls in love with Knowles' character and helps promote her career as a female artist.

After landing a role as an Axl Rose-like 80s rock star in "Rock of Ages", Tom Cruise could end up showing off his singing skills for one more time in his next film. Deadline broke the news that the 49-year-old actor is officially in talks with Clint Eastwood to join Beyonce Knowles in musical drama "A Star Is Born".

Should the deal be sealed, Cruise will be playing an "over the hill musician" who helps boost the career of a rising star he falls in love with. Knowles will portray the star, who watches Cruise's character sliding while her career shines.

It is still unclear whether Cruise would agree to star in the film since he has a pretty busy schedule. The A-lister has just begun filming for Joseph Kosinski's "Horizons" and he will follow it up with Doug Liman's "We Mortals Are". Eastwood's movie, meanwhile, is expected to kick off shooting as soon as June.

"A Star Is Born" promises an updated version of a romantic relationship between an alcoholic star on his way out and a young female artist on the rise. The project has actually been developed for sometime, but it fell apart before finally coming back together again earlier in 2011.

Before Cruise became the topliner, there had been several notable actors who were eyed for the male lead part. They included Leonardo DiCaprio, Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale and Will Smith.
