Cruise set for entertainment award

Tom Cruise is to become only the fourth person in history to receive a prestigious entertainment gong.

The Mission Impossible star will be presented with the coveted Entertainment Icon Award from the Friars Foundation, an award which has previously only been given to Tinseltown legends Douglas Fairbanks, Cary Grant and Frank Sinatra, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Friars Club Abbot Jerry Lewis said: "Tom Cruise will join an elite group of only three other entertainment legends who have received our Icon Award, and whose work has made a global impact on our industry and changed the very face of cinema."

Tom, 49 - who will next be seen as a rock singer in Rock Of Ages - will be given the gong at a gala in New York in June.
