NEW YORK – Game — what game?
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes threatened to upstage the action on the field on Monday when they watched the Washington Redskins season opener as VIP guests of Cruise's new business partner, Redskins owner Dan Snyder.
On the ESPN premiere of Monday Night Football, the couple were seen sitting in the owner's box, both decked out in shades. They watched the Redskins lose to the Minnesota Vikings 19-16.
The couple were joined by Cruise's daughter Isabella, 13, and son Connor, 11. The family — yes, even Vanity Fair cover-baby Suri — is staying at the Potomac, Md., home of Snyder, the Washington Post reported Tuesday.
Days after Cruise was publicly dumped by Paramount Pictures last month, the actor's production company signed a deal to finance movies through Snyder and others in the investment firm First and Goal LLC.
On Sunday, Cruise and Snyder went to the Snyder-owned Six Flags amusement park in Washington, the Post reported.
