IT may not have been the way he planned to make his international splash but it seems Jason Sullivan, the man tasered outside Tom Cruise’s house, is set to translate his high-profile indiscretion into a big Hollywood break.
The perma-tanned, lantern-jawed blond who relocated to LA from Sydney in July is said to have been inundated with media offers since his highly publicised arrest in Beverly Hills on Sunday night outside Cruise’s home.
And Confidential hears that the 41-year-old model is taking his time to consider all offers because he is also in the midst of launching his TV career in the US under the watchful eye of pal and housemate Kevin Huvane, who lives next door to Cruise.
One of Hollywood’s uber-power agents who counts Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt and Cruise among his client list, Huvane is said to be advising Sullivan on a handful of potential TV projects and has put the ex-Sydney boy up in his multi-million-dollar pad since his arrival in La La Land.
And already Sullivan has the support of his good pal and actress Erika Heynatz, who told Confidential this week: “I have great faith that Jason Sullivan will be a big star.”How Sullivan came to be scaling Cruise’s fence after a few drinks is yet to be fully revealed but he told police he mistook the property for his own.
And he informed Confidential exclusively that the matter was an “honest mistake”.
Cruise bears no hard feelings and his lawyer Bert Fields has no plans to press charges, a given considering Sullivan is bunking with Cruise’s agent.
All eyes now will be on just how well Sullivan can turn the embarrassing incident into a career positive.
His Aussie rep Sharon Finnigan told Confidential the model and interior decorator is weighing up his options before doing any interviews.
But don’t be surprised if Nine’s Karl Stefanovic gets first bite of the cherry.
Like Sullivan, he too is managed by Finnigan.
