      For such amazing insults as "How about I send you a hobo's dick cheese", and seeing him strut his stuff during the closing credits was frickin hilarious. Granted, when you put it next to Ledgers Joker it does look a little out of place, but its still nice to see comedy roles get nominated, coz it happens so bloody rarely. And it's not about screen time, its about impact. Just knowing that bat-s**t crazy mogul was Tom Cruise was absolutely hilarious.
