Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz throw it into Top Gear ahead of UK premiere

Hollywoodnews.com: By day, they are Hollywood mega-stars. Tonight in London, they will be guest stars.
As 20th Century Fox prepares to open James Mangold’s “Knight & Day” in the UK, stars Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are preparing to guest on this weekend’s edition of Top Gear, the BBC reports. The pair will take part in the segment, “Star In A Reasonably Priced Car.”
“We’ve have never, ever had two bigger guests,” show officials said a statement. “For the past week, the air in the office has been alive with a sort of sweaty-palmed excitement.”
Cruise and Diaz are expected to attend a “Knight & Day” premiere in London tonight.
The duo have been very active promoting the film, with Cruise, in particular, conducting a media blitz both in the States and overseas. It hasn’t necessarily translated into the type of box office the studio might have hoped for (“Knight” just crossed $70 million in the U.S.), but continued promotional support could up the film’s international cume.
Top Gear airs on various cable channels in the U.S., so check local listings if you hope to catch the Cruise-Diaz episode.
