Tom Cruise and Madonna NOT playing Goodfellas Henry and Karen Hill... Mega Phew!

Why? Last week, the producers of the awesome Goodfellas revealed that we were almost subjected to Tom Cruise and Madonna in the roles of Henry and Karen Hill that were played to perfection by Ray Liotta and Lorraine Bracco! That’s right, it could’ve been tiny Tom and his big grin telling you, “As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster…” And, there but for the grace of Martin Scorsese, a cinematic masterpiece could’ve ruined by Madge’s ‘acting’.

“Tom Cruise was discussed,” spilled producer Irwin Winkler. “Madonna seemed to be in the mix. Can you imagine? Tom Cruise and Madonna?” Erm no, we can’t. In fact, we think it’s funny, like, it’s amusing. Like a clown, it’s here to amuse us… THAT’S WHAT’S SO FUNNY!
