NBC’s “Today” show got the most out of its interview with Tom Cruise this morning. Cruise first appeared in the pre-show tease on local stations, including New York’s WNBC, operating a camera.
…he then appeared in the open of the show at 7:01…
…another studio walk-on at 7:15…
…arm wrestling Matt Lauer for another tease at 7:36…
And finally the interview at 7:39. Cruise said he came off as “arrogant” during his last appearance 3 1/2 years ago. He called Lauer “glib” during an intense discussion about psychiatry and antidepressants.
“I’m here to entertain people,” Cruise said today. “That’s who I am and what I want to do.”
