Whether this story about TomKat is true or completely made up (Britney Spears getting pregnant by Adnan Ghalib-style), it’s not any less funny.

Ex-Scientologist, Marc Headley, is the latest to claim Katie Holmes was Tom Cruise’s fourth choice as his wife and mother of his child.

Before TomKat were created, Tom Cruise allegedly held a casting call for wives under the guise of a Mission: Impossible movie audition.

Headley says Tom told BFF and Scientology leader, David Miscavige, that he was having trouble finding babes, so the church sent out a casting call.

Scientologists Sofia Milos and Erika Christensen were apparently presented to him, but the discerning Cruise wanted bigger celebrities.

Headley said they went for Jennifer Garner, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Alba, in that order… Jennifer and Jessica didn’t accept this wonderful invite, but Scarlett Johansson took the bait and came in for an audition. Briefly.

When ScarJo arrived and found out it was the Scientology Center in Hollywood, of course, she freaked out and bolted without doing a tape.

Katie Holmes, it turns out was their fourth choice. Tom apparently said he knew she was the one right away when she showed up for her “audition.”

Maybe he’s a big Dawson’s Creek fan. In any case, Katie was brainwashed ASAP, Suri Cruise was spawned a year later, and the rest is history.

Hey, John McCain was running fourth in some Republican polls in December, and the Giants’ fourth receiver, David Tyree, became a Super Bowl hero as New York upset the evil Patriots of New England. So hold your head up high, Katie!
