Wacko Dupes Cruise as Heath's Dad

1/29/2008 10:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tom Cruise and Heath LedgerIt's almost too sick to say, but an impostor posing as Heath Ledger's father got Tom Cruise to console him over the phone, and nearly convinced John Travolta to buy him a plane ticket.

The New York Post reports that the unnamed hoaxster even got the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home, where Heath's body was held, to book him a hotel room at the Carlyle Hotel, and talked to Tom Cruise directly, who consoled him, not knowing who he was.

The crazy person also reached Travolta, and reportedly almost got him to pay for a flight from Oz. Heath's actual father, Kim Ledger, is in New York now in advance of the burial.
