crazier than a shit house cat

Unless you've been in a coma this morning, you've probably heard today's big news out of Hollywood - that after 14 years of partnership, Paramount Studios has dumped Zartoo Third Overlord of Blargon 7. The Wall Street Journal broke the story last night, publishing an interview with Sumner Redstone - the chairman of Viacom.

According to Reuters -

Viacom Inc.'s Paramount Pictures unit is ending its 14-year relationship with Tom Cruise's film production company because of the actor's offscreen behavior, the company's chairman said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

Sumner Redstone, Viacom chairman, said the behavior of the star of the "Mission: Impossible" series and "Top Gun" was unacceptable to the company, according to the Wall Street Journal story e-mailed to reporters.

Cruise, one of Hollywood's biggest stars, has been known more recently for his antics on U.S. television talk shows, including jumping up and down on Oprah Winfrey's couch to declare his love for Katie Holmes and criticizing the use of antidepressant drugs.

"As much as we like him personally, we thought it was wrong to renew his deal," Redstone was quoted as saying in the Wall Street Journal. "His recent conduct has not been acceptable to Paramount."

Cruise's representatives and officials from Viacom and Paramount did not have any immediate comment on the report.

I, of course am eating this up with a spoon. I'm sure that Zartoo and his camp will likely respond with some bullshit excuse, and try to spin things in their favor - but either way, he will certainly feel the repercussions of this! In celebration of this rather glorious turn of events, I pulled together some fantastic clips that pretty clearly illustrate why this guy really is crazier than a shit house cat. Enjoy...

Maybe Tom Cruise and Mel Gibson can get together and make some kind weird Scientology/SuperCatholic company of their own, and pool their vast funds to make whatever weird film they desire. This could be funny - or more likely, just scary.
