Museum of Moving Image to fete Cruise July 11, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Movies.

Tom Cruise will be honored with a tribute at the Museum of the Moving Image’s 23rd annual black-tie event in New York.

The salute, set for November 6 at Cipriani 42nd Street in Midtown Manhattan, honors the 27-year film career of the actor, producer and United Artists studio head.

“Tom Cruise is one of the premier American actors of his generation,” MOMI director Rochelle Slovin said. “Working with the great directors of our time including Francis Ford Coppola, Stanley Kubrick, Sydney Pollack, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and now Robert Redford, Cruise has given us indelible characters and performances.”

Cruise will next appear opposite Meryl Streep and director-star Redford in UA’s political drama “Lions for Lambs.”

Past recipients of the honor include Sidney Lumet, Robert De Niro, Richard Gere, Al Pacino, Sidney Poitier, Julia Roberts and James Stewart.
