We already told you that Tom Cruise was talking up a potential Les Grossman movie backstage at the MTV Movie Awards, and now Paramount has made the whole thing official by releasing a press release that confirms Cruise and Ben Stiller will be producing a movie based on the fictional foul-mouthed movie executive featured in Tropic Thunder. Cruise will most likely star (I mean, he’d kinda have to at this point), and I wouldn’t be surprised if Ben Stiller carved out a little role for himself as well.
Tom Cruise, Ben Stiller
The absolute BEST part of Tropic Thunder. I'd be there opening weekend for Les Grossman.
I thought after watching Tropic Thunder, that Tom Cruise SHOULD do comedies. He really hasn't, 'cept Jerry Maguire and recently Knight and Day. Imagine him in romantic comedies? He could be a huge movie star!
Seriously, he's always made great movies, and I'm hoping he never stops.

Mmn..maybe if the movie was centered around one of his assistants. Kind of like the Devil Wears Prada but for guys.
it would be a funny movie. i would see it
They should have Les appear in entourage. Him and Ari would be hysterical.
I don't know about that comment. I have hope that the character is funny enough to last an entire film. Example: Will Ferrell and all of his stupid characters.
I think it should be more of a "What made Les" film. How he rose to power. What obstacles did he overcome. Why his first 5 wives left him (I'm assuming he's been married at least 3 times). That way the End Result Wes, is not nearly as obnoxious.
uh, Les not wes.
les grossman made tropic thunder. cant wait
oh and i had no respect for tom cruise and didnt even realize les was tom cruise until the second time i watched tropic thunder. more les please
If you had read prior reviews it was Stiller that was pressing for further use of this character. He was so thrilled with the reception from Tropic Thunder. It could be worse. We could be seeing more Simple Jack.
yep....too much and too one dimensional but they'll sucker me out of my money anyways. Les was the best 10 minutes of Tropical Thunder. This movie should only be at most 40% Les Grossman...I don't know maybe a little guy getting screwed by the man and trying to get revenge plot
This character is funny but I agree that a whole film would be a bit much. Making short and unexpected appreances of this character would be a wise thing to do. You have to admit that Les is funny though!!
Typical Tom Cruise - take a good bit that raises his popularity and take it to the extreme so it becomes overblown.
I agree. Grossman would get stop being and start being, well, gross pretty quickly. Not to mention, this character is just not interesting enough to hold up a film. He's way too one-dimensional.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
