Tom Cruise's fat-suited appearance as Hollywood playa Les Grossman was admittedly one of the funniest and most surprising aspects of Tropic Thunder, but are you ready for the full ninety minutes? Cruise, following his appearance in character as Grossman at this year's MTV awards. told E Online backstage that a Les Grossman movie is definitely in the works.
"We're working on it," he apparently "beamed". "Yup, we're definitely working on it."
So perhaps this explains Grossman's rather belated reappearance: Tropic Thunder was two years ago now, after all. Grossman danced live with Jennifer Lopez, and pre-filmed skits saw him bawling out Robert Pattinson and helping create the iconic Cruise-dancing-in-his-pants moment from Risky Business. E Online also caught Cruise chatting to Todd Phillips, leading to speculation that Grossman might appear in The Hangover 2. Bit of a stretch?
It's nice to see Cruise clearly having fun, but could this joke, at feature-length, strain our good will? Watch this space...
