Connor Cruise Follows In Dad’s Footsteps

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s son Connor is making his big screen debut in Will Smith’s upcoming film, Seven Pounds. The 13-year-old will be playing a minor part as the younger version of Will’s character, a role for which he had to audition.

A source revealed to People magazine, “Tom is so proud of Connor. He’s proud of him for really doing this on his own.” Hmm, yeah, even if he had to go through the motions of an audition, I’m sure it didn’t hurt that it was a movie starring Tom’s Scientology sympathetic BFF Will Smith.

I wonder what kind of contract those kids have with Tom? From the look of how much Connor is enjoying his pricey English Western riding lessons, I’m sure it’s worth every penny.
