Tom Cruise to play Hef?

There could be an unusual role in Tom Cruise's future - Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. According to the Palm Beach Post, the 45-year-old star of Misson: Impossible and the upcoming Valkyrie is now eyeing the role of the sexual revolutionary in a biopic set to start filming next year. X-Men director Brett Ratner landed the flick after Oliver Stone lost it and has sent the script to Cruise. Word is that Cruise is tickled by the project, although no decision has been made. "A lot of people consider Tom for a lot of roles," a Cruise publicist said. Ewwwwwwwww. Let's hope this is just a rumor.
