Potential comedy feature in the works
Following his surprise dance hop hipperformance with Jennifer Lopez at the MTV Movie Awards as Tropic Thunder alter ego, producer Les Grossman, Tom Cruise has revealed that he’s hoping to play the character in a full length feature.
Backstage at the awards ceremony, Cruise told E! online that “We’re working on it.”
Cruise’s turn as the foul-mouthed movie producer Grossman in the 2008 film Tropic Thunder was one of Hollywood’s worst kept secret cameos.
Cruise, 47, was almost unrecognisable in the role, donning a fat suit and large fake hands to play the satirical version of an all-powerful movie mogul.
