Photos of Tom Cruise and Col. Claus von Stauffenberg

Well, this is downright eerie. On the left is the historical figure Col. Claus von Stauffenberg, the aristocratic German officer who led the daring "July 20" plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler in 1944. On the right is none other than Tom Cruise who is portraying Stauffenberg in the thriller Valkyrie.

The movie is filming in Germany now, much to the fury of von Stauffenberg's family, who absolutely detest Tom Cruise because of his Scientology ties. Doesn't Cruise look like Von Stauffenberg? He's the spitting image.
