What The F***?: Tom Cruise’s Les Grossman Gets a Movie
So, that’s what that bump and grind with Jennifer Lopez at this year’s 2010 MTV Movie Awards was all about…
After repeatedly hijacking this year’s broadcast and then later wowing its audience with a slick choreographed dance number that featured dancers, an on-screen Ludacris and J. Lo, Tom Cruise’s popular and very un-PC alter ego Les Grossman will soon be headed to a theater near you.
Paramount and MTV Films are developing the film based on Cruise’s potty-mouthed producer character from the 2008 hit movie, Tropic Thunder. The star of the upcoming film Knight and Day, will also be on board to produce along with his Tropic co-star and director Ben Stiller.
Talk about kick-butt, smart promotion, that sure beats the hell out of a trailer.—Ronke Idowu Reeves
