  1. AMC's 'Preacher' blows up Tom Cruise in surprise Scientology scene.

    Tom Cruise and Scientology are being very smart with this. Given that other ministers, priests, etc. also explode, this mainstreams Scientology. This is also designed to show that Tom Cruise and Scientology have a sense of humor and can take a joke.

    In the premiere, a mysterious force from outer space is possessing preachers around the world – then graphically exploding them from the inside out. Midway through the episode, there’s a news report that shows Cruise speaking in front of a Church of Scientology audience, and then likewise blowing up.

    At today's SXSW screening of the "Preacher" pilot -- where it was also revealed that the series will premiere after "Fear the Walking Dead's" mid-season finale -- the audience was treated to a surprise scene that featured A-list actor Tom Cruise in a cameo role.

    In the premiere (via Entertainment Weekly), an unknown force from outer space possess preachers around the world, and eventually makes them blow up, inside out. One of those preachers is Tom Cruise, who appears on a TV screen speaking on behalf of the Church of Scientology in front of a crowd.
    Then, Cruise explodes, in a gratuitously violent fashion.

    Tom Cruise: Unsuitable for an unknown force from outer space.

    He's always seemed unsuitable, IMO.
