While Katie Holmes tries for a normal life with daughter Suri on the East Coast, Cruise has been working out west.
And Connor flew to the California set of Cruise's sci-fi film Oblivion Wednesday, when the two were snapped chatting and smiling widely.
Connor, who's been getting buzz as a Hollywood deejay, was also by dad's side in Iceland when news of Holmes's surprise divorce filing broke. Connor and his older sister Isabella, 19, whose mom is Cruise's ex-wife Nicole Kidman, have since been close with their dad. And it was the teens who helped Cruise turn 50 last week in Hollywood.
Meanwhile, Holmes has since has primary custody of 6-year-old Suri and has been settling into New York City life, getting spotted at art museums, in cafés and even at the zoo.
