Have To Side With Germany On This

It seems the German government objects to Tom Cruise playing the role of Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg in the proposed movie "Valkyrie" about the July 20th plot to assassinate Hitler.

The Germans, including Stauffenberg's son Berthold, claim that their objection is based on Cruise's links to Scientology.

I think this is just cover.

German law allows them to object based on his "cult" connections, but not based on the fact that his recent performances indicate that he would screw the movie up.

And Eddie Izzard is cast in there as well. Not that I am all down on him, but for this movie?
