Katie Holmes will have the night of December 17 off from her Broadway play, Dead Accounts–maybe she can head a bit uptown and check out the nostalgic films that made her ex-husband, Tom Cruise, so beloved for a time. Tom Cruise is appearing at the Time Warner Center for a retrospective conversation moderated by Kent Jones, the director of programming for the New York Film Festival. Expect lots of those big, toothy guffaws, and effusive praise for every costar from Jamie Foxx (we’re guessing: “A total pro”) to Dustin Hoffman (“Man, oh, man. A legend. An icon“) to Nicole Kidman (“[laughs heartily] Working with Nic is just–she really ups your game”). Then there’s a screening of his new film Jack Reacher.
