The 14-year-old budding thespian (and adopted son of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, despite what Michael's insane, wannabe baby mama says in court) is signed on for his second big-screen offering, a remake of Red Dawn, the '80s action flick.

Connor's debut came as a younger version of Will Smith's character in the terrible Seven Pounds. It's good that the bar was set low for him at least!

Connor Cruise is following in his dad's footsteps. Sort of literally.

According to reports, Connor Cruise will play the son of the local mayor, who along with three friends form an unlikely insurgency against evil enemy invaders.

Tom Cruise couldn't be prouder, but since his own company, United Artists is producing the film, he probably wasn't all that surprised at this casting move.
