Bill Hader briefly talks about more abuse in the Les Grossman movie

06.22.2010

Bill Hader spent most of TROPIC THUNDER getting belittled and browbeaten by portly and profane producer Les Grossman, but he's more than happy to come back for more.

As we heard a couple weeks back, Tom Cruise's blustery Hollywood mogul is getting his own movie, although Hader admits he doesn't know much more beyond cheerfully receiving more shouts and spittle. The SNL star says: "I love getting yelled at by him! Having to take that much abuse is pretty funny. It’s on a Mr. Smithers-Mr. Burns level!"

"I know Mike Bacall, the guy who’s writing it," Hader says, "and they have all of those ideas. He’s an insanely talented guy — he wrote SCOTT PILGRIM vs THE WORLD with Edgar Wright and a great drama called MANIC [with Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt], which Michael also starred in. We could be seeing some addiction and some weird stuff — but the dancing scenes are pretty mandatory!"

Hader will next appear in the Wright-less Pegg/Frost collaboration PAUL, a road trip comedy about two comic nerds who meet an extraterrestrial.

Extra Tidbit: Of all his SNL work, nothing beats Hader's THERE WILL BE BLOOD impersonation.

Stupid idea

I didnt laugh at all during the scenes in Tropic Thunder. I like Hader but, cruise in it just dindt make me laugh. Whats so funny about cussing and yelling at a phone? Or dancing as a bald fat guy? I dont think i could watch that humor for more than five minutes. :/
BTW, I do like Cruise for doing this though. It does show his fun side :) but it doesnt make ME laugh.

Tom Cruise as Les Grossman was his best role in like 15 years, mainly because he doesn't look like himself. I could finally forget about Cruise's douchebaggery and enjoy him as an actor again

Steffon

Steffon is Bill Hader's best character in my opinion.

"New York's hottest night club is Crush. Club promoter Gay Liota is back and he's gone CRAZY."

I'm all for this. They need to tone the dancing down a notch, it's getting old. Although the MTV Awards dance with J-Lo was freaking amazing.

If they used Hader's character as the protagonist, I think the film could work well. Les Grossman will (and has, for some people) become a tired exercise in self-one-upmanship -- with regards to absurdly dirty and ridiculous insults -- IF he's left as the central focus. Not to say this won't be the case, but to place Les as the ultimate antagonist to Hader's guy, there's much more room for story development. Somebody's got to change in the movie. Having it be Les would be a stretch and

Having it be Les would be a stretch and extremely lame, not to mention cheating the character by humanizing him. (He is, by all accounts, a monster.)

Give the protagonist role to Hader. He's proven himself IMO to be a consistently hilarious actor, so why not give him one of the leads? His (though a small role in Tropic Thunder) would be a fun role to watch.

Well "Marmaduke" did fairly well so I expect this to be a hit.
