Cruise to bring 'Tropic' character back to screen

Actor Tom Cruise stars in a film out Christmas Day that might be the biggest risk of his career. "Valkyrie" is the true story of a German officer in World War II who plotted to assassinate Adolf Hitler. Cruise told Barbara Walters the film was "inspiring." "It was an incredible screenplay," he said. "A story that I didn't know about, and that I had no idea that that happened? it was just very compelling." (Dan Steinberg/AP Photo)
