Tom Cruise's Kid -- An Actor?

Another Cruise will be speeding onto the big screen, as Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's son, Connor, has just snagged a role in the new Will Smith movie, Seven Pounds.

Yes, it is a little curious considering Tom and Will are BFFs, but sources say that Connor had to audition for the role -- which is a younger version of Will's character.

"Tom is so proud of Connor," says a source. "He's proud of him for really doing this on his own."

For his first time out, Connor is in decent company in the flick, which also stars Woody Harrelson and Rosario Dawson.

I tend to be skeptical when mega movie star's kids get roles in films, but Will and Jada's little one, Jayden, had a big role in dad's The Pursuit of Happiness and rocked it. Maybe Connor is just as good?
