Not See Germany
Germany has barred the makers of a movie about a plot to kill Adolf Hitler from filming at German military sites because its star is Tom Cruise, who -- it may surprise you to learn -- is a Scientologist.
The German government doesn't recognize Scientology as an actual religion, saying that it merely masquerades as one to make money.
Cruise has been cast as Nazi Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg in "Valkyrie" -- and also serves as the movie's executive producer. Von Stauffenberg was the ringleader of an unsuccessful attempt to assassinate Hitler in July of 1944 with a bomb hidden in a briefcase.
Now really, what's funnier -- Berlin telling Tom Cruise that his "religion" is full of shit, or these words: "Tom Cruise IS Nazi Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg?"
