Tom Cruise In Preacher?

CruiseI honestly don’t know what surprised me most: news that Tom Cruise is making a cameo in the forthcoming Preacher pilot or that the synopsis of the storyline includes this:

In the premiere, an unknown force from outer space possess preachers around the world, and eventually makes them blow up, inside out.

A “force from outer space”? What the hell? I know they’ve got to make some changes to the source material but really: an “unknown force from outer space”?

Have to admit, that doesn’t bode well.
