Tom Cruise Teases Les Grossman Movie
Posted 06.08.10 by Ryan
Tom Cruise brought his character of the foul-mouthed, Twilight actor-berating, movie producer Les Grossman from 2008's Tropic Thunder and into the MTV Movie Awards over the weekend, and it seems Cruise is not through having fun with his new-found alter-ego.
Backstage at the show, Cruise told E!Online that an entire Les Grossman movie was a real possibility.
We're working on it. Yup, we're working on it.
MTV speculates that a "a Grossman spinoff would be a lot like an Entourage movie, except told from the point of view of an Ari Gold character, not a Vinny Chase." And, no doubt, Grossman foil Bill Hader will appear as well.
Stranger things have happened. In fact, Tropic Thunder director and star Ben Stiller created the character of Derek Zoolander for the VH1 Fashion Awards in 1996 and 1997 before writing the 2001 movie, and Michael Keaton's character of FBI agent Ray Nicolette from Jackie Brown showed up again in Out of Sight, even though both movies were unrelated outside of being adaptations of Elmore Leonard novels.
And none of those characters went from appearing in a movie to doing a choreographed dance with Jennifer Lopez. Watch below if you missed Grossman's booty-bumping performance from the MTV Movie Awards.
