Katie Holmes had a very special companion for her morning walk to rehearsal today — her husband Tom Cruise. The actor finally joined his girls in NYC, and it looks like it immediately put a smile on recently slightly gloomy Katie's face. She also left Tom's jeans for him to wear as the duo grasped hands for the stroll. After another late night out with mom, Suri skipped the trip, but we've got many months of seeing the family in NYC ahead. Meanwhile, Tom's people seem to be on the offensive combating any rumors of career trouble for the actor by assuring us that he already passed on Edwin A. Salt long before Angelina's name came up, while chief execs at United Artists released a statement saying Tom isn't going anywhere after the departure of Paula Wagner. Plus, everyone loves him in Tropic Thunder, right?
