Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard may not have predicted Tom Cruise, per se, but he certainly anticipated the Tom Cruise effect. As Wright writes in "Going Clear":

When the Church of Scientology was officially founded in Los Angeles, in February 1954, by several of Hubbard's devoted followers, there was already a history of religious celebrities and celebrity religions. The cultivation of famous people - or people who aspired to be famous - was a feature of Hubbard's grand design. He foresaw that the best way of promoting Scientology as a ladder to enlightenment was to court celebrities.
