Apparently, the feeling is mutual. He's enjoyed his time so much that he has written the people of Boston a thank you letter for their consideration and cooperation.
From the Blog on TomCruise.com
To the wonderful people of Boston,
My family and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your warmth and hospitality during our incredible stay here. We absolutely love Boston and will treasure our memories of the freedom trail, the Duck Tours, the museums, restaurants, gorgeous parks and, of course, our unforgettable runs around the St. Charles River. It was an autumn to remember!
On behalf of the cast and crew of ‘Knight & Day’ we thank you for being so accommodating, patient and understanding throughout our filming. By lending us the beauty of your city you’ve made this film something truly special. Words can only begin to express our appreciation.
I’d like to give a very special ‘shout-out’ to our local crew who were impeccable. It was a great pleasure working with you.
We wish for you a very happy holiday season and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

I took these pictures and am told by a police officer that filming will continue until at least midnight tonight. And you'll see a friendly security guard named Shea down below - he is currently stationed outside my office.

Now I don't know much about real guns/fake bullets, I'm not the shoot 'em up type. But I was told by my insider at Fenway that there is a flare when these are fired. The flare melts the tip of the blank. Inside a real bullet there would be gunpowder in the tip, but not in these.
Anyway check out these photos of my hand and this little nugget of Affleck memorabilia. Cool, right?! And check back soon because I am expecting some behind the scenes footage from the same day that this little guy was used.
Background footage that you can see behind the contestants as they spin the wheel was partially filmed along our Boston Movie Tours. You'll see the Boston Common, Public Garden and even Acorn Street (used in the original Thomas Crown Affair). And along the same lines, the show was actually filmed at the Boston Convention Center (another tour highlight).
I'm told that the three weeks of shows are broken up into different Boston themes. This week is a historical "spin" on the puzzles and on the final week there will be a charity show featuring Boston Celtics Captain Paul Pierce... and that's "The Truth"!
