Tom Cruise Cruises Past Michael Jackson For Weird Celeb Honor

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The dubious honors just keep coming for Tom Cruise, who has beat out Michael Jackson as the “Weirdest Celebrity of 2005.”

That’s the word from celebrity journalist Ben Kallen, author of a new book, The Year In Weird (Booksurge Publishing).

Kallen admits Jacko has set such a high level for oddness that someone has to do something really wacky to top him. That’s why Cruise has been the odds-on favorite for odd celeb ever since he jumped on Oprah’s couch.

Still, Jacko runs a close second and Kallen says there hasn’t been a month in 2005 that the King of Pop hasn’t done something truly wacko.

Other celebs being honored for their weirdness include Russell Crowe, who threw a phone at a hotel concierge and Nicolas Cage, who named his son, Kal-el, in honor of Superman’s real name.
