Here’s another film with a misleadingly Halloween-ish title, but this documentary is a horror story in its way.

‘Iron Man’ And 9 Other Iconic Film Roles Nearly Played By Tom Cruise

Next to Jack Nicholson, I don’t think anyone embodies the role of movie star more than Tom Cruise. (Only difference being Nicholson brings a certain arrogance of cool and Tom has more of an industry robot vibe.) Throughout much of the 80s, all of the 90s, and well into the 00s, Tom Cruise could …
