Tom Cruise is set to be honoured at New York City's Museum of
the Moving Image (MOMI) next November.
The 'Minority Report' star, 45, follows in the footsteps of
former honourees Sidney Lumet, Robert De Niro, Richard Gere, Al
Pacino, Sidney Poitier, Julia Roberts and James Stewart. MOMI
director Rochelle Slovin said they chose Cruise for his outstanding
27-year film career, which started with Endless Love in 1981.
Slovin says, "Tom Cruise is one of the premier American actors
of his generation. Working with the great directors of our time -
(including) Francis Ford Coppola, Stanley Kubrick, Sydney Pollack,
Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and now Robert Redford - Cruise
has given us indelible characters and performances.
