Fans Select Tom Cruise For Lead Role In Watch Dogs Movie
Even before Watch Dogs hit store shelves, Ubisoft asked gamers who they wanted to see play Aiden Pearce in the big-screen adaptation.
The publisher offered up a pretty impressive list of choices, with huge names like Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Tom Cruise, Robert Downey, Jr., Clive Owen and Tobey Maguire. Now, with the voting closed, Ubisoft has got their fan pick, and it isn't surprising.
It's Tom Cruise, who has been in more movies than we can count. The "Mission Impossible" series is probably his most recognizable, but then going back, there's "Top Gun," "Days of Thunder," "Risky Business," "Rain Man," "The Color of Money," etc, etc, etc. And with 37% of the online poll, he might just be on tap to play the protagonist in the "Watch Dogs" film. Downey Jr. got 20% of the vote, Norton came in at 19%, and Paul Walker ("The Fast and the Furious") was third with 11%. I still say it should've been either Norton or Owen but whatever.
Cruise might be too old for this role, and it's too bad he's nuts. Has the Scientology church found him a new wife yet...?
