Tom Cruise briefly brings back Tropic Thunder's megaproducer Les Grossman

05.29.2010

Aside from Robert Downey Jr. as the dude playing the dude disguised as another dude, the best thing about TROPIC THUNDER might have been Tom Cruise's appearance as caustic movie mogul Les Grossman.

To help promote the upcoming MTV Movie Awards, Cruise has slipped on the skin lid and hair sleeves again to give us another injection of the character, as he dispenses advice to Robert Pattinson's coiffure and proves that teens do indeed "love ass".


Extra Tidbit: Dunno if I'd say this character deserves his own movie, but I'd like to see him show up on the big screen again.

Be honest, without Les Grossman, how many of you were ready to write Tom Cruise off as a total nut job? Now I see him as a a guy with a sense of humor about himself and his industry. Les Grossman did more for Tom Cruise than a thousand publicists could ever do!

This is hilarious :) I really hope he's going to make an appearance at the movie awards. Could be really, really funny. Although he won't be able to curse as much, and the cursing is one of the best parts about his characters. Both videos are hilarious. Good stuff :)

"I will fuck you up!!!" I love Tom Cruise and I dont know why people all of a sudden turned against him. Who cares about his beliefs, hes still a brilliant actor. Minority Report, Collateral, MI, Top Gun, Interview with a Vampire etc..

there's a lot of reasons, he's in a cult, he has messed beliefs about psychiatry, he owns property on the moon, in his contract crew members are not allowed to look him in the eye.. I still respect him as an actor but I can at least accept why folks have issues with him

Tidbit

I totally agree! I loved his character in the movie. Through the whole movie, I was trying to place where I recognized him. Then BAM! At the end I see that it's Tom Cruise, and that sealed the deal on the character for me. I'm not a Cruise fan (actually don't really care for him at all), but I thought he did an outstanding job with this character. He deserves his own film.

After watching the 2nd one

Wouldn't it also be great to see Les Grossman meet Frank T.J. Mackey from Magnolia?

This was funny, but I doubt the average MTV viewer even remembers who Les Gtossman was.

Money!

It is good to see Tom Cruise having some fun more recently in his roles, I can't wait for Knight and Day, now I can laugh with him and not just at him!

Honestly LG is Tom Cruise at his best. I would watch a film any day of the week that has Les Grossman as the main lead.

tom cruise is great, but MTV fails

I'm sorry, but ever since Twilight won movie of the year, I've lost COMPLETE respect for this show. The MTV generation today are seriously the stupidest people on the planet, especially the tween/teen girls.

I remember when MTV was actual music television. All they would play all day and night is videos (great ones too). Hell I remember when MTV first aired. The first video ever played when MTV hit the airwaves was "Video Killed The Radio Star, by The Buggles"

I don't think they're more stupid than readers of joblo or any other site for that matter.
And if you had respect for a show like that before that... well, you're not the smartest anyway to begin with.
I don't care for a show like this, I still love to watch it. Can't wait.

Awesome

Was just thinking of this character again the other day for some reason, and was wondering if Cruise would ever bring him back for something. I think a full movie with just his character as the focus would suck, but they should bring him back in other comedies, kinda like the Marvel movies featuring characters from other series. Imagine Zoolander 2 with a cameo by Les Grossman. It works, too, because the film kinda takes place in Hollywood.

Love the ads. I wonder if we could actually get a full length film with this character.
