Sumner Redstone will tolerate Tom Cruise

Sumner Redstone, the 84-year-old crypt keeper at Viacom, has called off the fatwa against Tom Cruise, saying the rambunctious actor was welcome to star in a fourth installment of Mission: Impossible.

Tbdtomcruisekatie050708 As you'll recall, Sumner was none too pleased with Cruise's couch-jumping antics, severing a 14-year-relationship with Tom in August 2006. He booted him off the Paramount lot and cut ties to Cruise's production company for future projects (Viacom owns Paramount). But all that has apparently changed.

"I consider Tom Cruise a great actor and a good friend," Redstone said. "And if Paramount decides -- and they will make the decision -- to move ahead with him, I will not object."

Which is great and all, but the controversial thing here is, there's gonna be another M:I movie? Jeez.
