Our Casting Suggestions for Scientology: The Movie

Page 7 of 7

Role: Tommy Davis, head of Celebrity Centre International, son of actress Anne Archer

Actor: Colin Farrell

Davis is currently the Church's go-to guy for damage-control interviews, but inevitably, he seems to wind up causing even more damage. Plus, Davis always looks like he hasn't slept in days.

Of course, there would be a better actor for the job. Tom Cruise. Davis himself seems to have modeled his public speaking after Cruise's. In the video below, watch Davis (at the 3:40 mark) put on his Cruise face when ABC's Martin Bashir asks him about Xenu.
