Paramount Announces Les Grossman Project

Paramount Announces Les Grossman Project

Tom Cruise will reprise his role as Les Grossman in a new film with Paramount Pictures and MTV Films.

The mega producer character was introduced to audiences in Tropic Thunder and most recently appeared on the MTV Movie Awards, dancing with Jennifer Lopez.

“Les Grossman’s life story is an inspiring tale of the classic human struggle to achieve greatness against all odds,” Ben Stiller, who starred in Tropic Thunder and will produce the Grossman project with Tom, said.

“He has assured me he plans to quote, ‘F—ing kill the s— out of this movie and make Citizen f—ing Kane look like a piece of crap home movie by the time we are done.’ I am honored to be working with him,” Ben continued.

  • Scaramanga

    Oh, Lord Jesus, No. So incredibly desperate Mr. Cruise. Pathetic.

  • Whatever…

    Snooze… NO ONE wants to see ANY Tom Cruise movie. This guy is a freak, weirdo and a total closet case. Next!

    facepalm

    This is just sad. Sad that he’d do it and sad that Paramount would green light it. This is what Cruise is reduced two. From a guy nominated for academy awards for Born on the 4th, Jerry Maquire and Magnolia to dancing like a trained monkey in heavy makeup. What’s next? Balancing a ball on his nose?

    Interestingly, JJ left out something else from the same article this came from. Knight and Day is tracking very poorly and looks to be a bomb.

    Tom Cruise the actor is dead and gone. No he’s just a parody in bad makeup and a fat suit.

    I predict Les Grossman film will make $47.13 at the box office.

  • Xanda

    crappy movie on the way, yay! Charly is right, Tom Cruise is just sad.

  • athena

    I think this will be a great movie….It’s hard to believe that’s Tom Cruise….just as long as he doesn’t look like this when he gets much older….lol…

  • L

    It’s like he found the one thing that not everyone hates him as and he’s taking advantage and DOING IT TO DEATH. Ugh.

  • http://happytoo.com happy girl

    Great idea and great strategic move on Tom’s part. You are getting Tom but not really. It will be his comeback. Just leave the weird Scientology at home Tom. lol.

  • http://JUSTJARED TRUTH

    TOM – NO ONE WANTS TO SEE YOU IN THIS “MOVIE”! PLEASE! LEAVE US ALONE! YOU ARE NOT FUNNY. YOU ARE ANNOYING AND YOU KEEP PUSHING YOURSELF IN OUR FACES! PARAMOUNT – CANCEL THIS PROJECT IF YOU DON’T WANT TO LOOSE MONEY. NO ONE IS GOING TO WATCH THIS S—-T!

  • busted

    Does anyone really think this was spur of the moment.. PLEASE Tom has had this crap in the works since that performance in Tropic Thunder.. the MTV awards was like a Test audience to see if it played.

    It is a funny character on a SMALL scale..but it does not work on larger one. TOM let it go.. the promos were funny the first time but after that it was overkill.

    But this is just my take..maybe others want to pay to see this character for 90 minutes on the big screen.. I will say NOPE..

  • http://JUSTJARED ALSO TRUTH

    CAN A NIGRO GET A TABLE DANCE, PLEASE, WE DON’T WANT TO SEE THIS CLOSET GAY PAIN IN THE A…SS, CAN’T ACT, OVER ACTS, LOOKS LIKE A MAD MAN IN THE FACE, LOOK AT THOSE CRAZY EYE’S, HOLLYWOOD, YOU NEED TO START LOOKING FOR YOUNG TALENTED PEOPLE, STOP WITH WILL SMITH, TOM CRUISE, JAMIE FOXX, AND NO DAM TALENTLESS AT ALL HALLE BERRY.

  • ooooooooohhhhh NNNNOOOO

    I love this Les Grossman character but only in small amounts. They plugged him to death on MTV Movie Awards which was funny disregard the Taylor Lautner one.

    However, now we have a full feature movie nnnnnoooooo.

    The point of the character is to have limits. Tom Cruise is just getting popular with some people after 10 years because of his MTV performance and now his going to kill it.

    Give up when your winning Tom. ooooohhh well, it might suprise trying to stay positive but it’s hard…

    I bet the Twilight guys are in this movie after all it’s part of MTV.

    When will it stop.

  • slambang

    UGH – enough with this character already! He’s played out – just like Tom himself!

  • Can we say?????????????

    Jumping the shark?

  • Punk’d by Tom Cruise

    TC just punk’d the world & won.

    He is getting his movie made.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l..

    …Cool. Grossman was the best part of Tropic Thunder, and his promo clip with Rob Pattinson was the Best part of the entire MTV movie awards. The movie can be funny, hope it is.
    -
    …And I bet every important a-lister will be in the movie.

  • S@n

    Hmmmm! NOWAY!

  • Susie

    HOLY SH*T. TOM IS REALLY GOING EVERBOARD . HE IS TRYING TOO HARD (DESPERATE) TO BECOME RELEVANT AGAIN. IT’S TOO LATE , TOM. YOU AND A CERTAING WHINNY D- LISTER -CREEP HAVE BEEN ON OUR FACES FOR A LONG TIME NOW. BOTH OF YOU, NEED TO RIDE INTO THE SUNSET. GIVE IT UP. TOM, BY THE TIME YOUR MOVIE COMES OUT WE ARE GOING TO BE SICK, WITH ALL THE SHINNANIGANS THAT YOU ARE PULLING. —- YOU AND THIS NO TALENT FAKE CREEP —ARE EVERYWHERE. WHAT’S UP WITH THAT?. YOU NEED TO SAVE YOUR MONEY FOR SURI’S EDUCATION. REALLY. TOM, IT IS AN OVERKILL. GIVE IT UP.

  • MGA film critic

    Tommy boy, it’s a bit much. Maybe audiences will respond, maybe not.
    But, like many dramatic actors before him, some will find a second windfall in comedies. Actors that did comedies late in their career? What about Christopher Walken, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci… to name a few.
    If Cruise is able to parody himself without makeup, he has a good chance at making alot of people laugh for a long time.

  • Sarah

    Tom Cruise’s ego is totally out of control because him and JLO got a standing ovation for the dance they did.

    Tiks was planned all along. The character was introduces to the public isnan unusual way. If the character is to expose the trashy world of all the lowlife, oily, smary studio heads, agents, etc.. out there, I’m all for it.

  • anon

    I meant this was planned all along. The character was insanely popular especially among insider Hollywood. The public may not really be clued in as to what this Grossman is really about. It’s aboujt the sleaazier side of Hollywood and the men who run it. Everyone in the industry has met that Grossman type. The hype by Ben Stiller is just what the character and his associates would say, so he said it.

  • http://impulsemagazine.net Men’s online magazine

    I knew this was coming after his great performance at the movie awards

  • Ella

    Beating Citizen Kane, the number ONE movie of all time ?
    A little too much expectation eh, Mr.Cruise ?

  • mickey

    Great–maybe it can run as a double feature with MacGruber 2: Electric Boogaloo.

  • Gertrude

    I wouldn’t spit on TC if he was on fire. I can’t stand him – but I think Len Grossman is a perfect role for him. Loud, obnoxious, ugly, disgusting and talentless – he won’t even have to act.

  • Times a tickin

    This character was funny in Tropic Thunder as a cameo which is how it should stay. To base a movie around this character will be an epic fail. The MTV thing was stupid too btw.

  • K000000

    Just like I said before. Drip with a head shaped like a loaf of German bologna and the brain of a weinerschnitzel.

  • http://www.bbwlovers.net/ Candy

    this has to be a joke

  • K000000

    Don’t blame it on the dog.

  • Ali

    He should work with Ben Stiller on a good comedy – not Les Grossman. That guy is only palatable in small doses – a whole film of him would be disgusting. He should rethink this. Do something else with Stiller. Get himself a really good acting project. And stop looking in the mirror.

  • annie

    I think Knight and Day will do well. Love Les Grossman,he’s really funny. He was the best thing inTropic Thunder. Tom Cruise is a smart man, he knows his work, he’ll put in just enough of Grossman to keep it fun and interesting.
    I wish though , he and Ben Stiller would finally get together and do The Hardy Men, now that would be a fun movie to see.
    I wouldn’t under estimate Tom for anything, he knows how far to take something.
    Toms main problem is the media, they just want to sell. They hash up what happened 5yrs ago , over and over. In 5yrs , there is nothing new, just rehash, day in day out.
    The guy has not done anything, that is unforgivable, other actors and actresses do miserable things every day…..jail , drugs, booze, insults to different cultures, telephone throwing at peoples heads.
    Give him a break!

  • Mariele

    Perhaps Tom is channeling Andy Kaufman’s Tony Clifton?

  • Steph

    I would not watch his movies even if they were for free.

  • So Judgemental

    I almost feel bad for Cruise.. almost. So hard to drum up any sympathy for this little man who thinks he is the savior of the world through Scientology. Who micro manages his wives.. who pimps his daughter.. who ruined his career with his public melt down after firing his real publicist and using his scientology brain washed sister… ah Tom.. no matter how many arranged photo ops of you being a good dad. and rescuing people road side because ONLY YOU could.. I am just not buying it dude. And I will never pay to see another movie featuring you.. not even your true inner self.. Les Grossman.

    Suri.. when you are old enough.. run!! Call Maddox Jolie Pitt. He has an Millenium Villiage in Cambodia with an animal preserve you can deprogram there and hide from the scientology handlers.. he will help you escape!! SERIOUSLY!! Join the Jolie Pitt’s.. they will save you.

  • Dee

    wow, is this why Paramount won’t green light Anchorman two???

  • Jokergurl

    Oh no no no. This character is too annoying! He was fine in small doses in Tropic Thunder but a whole movie? No. Now if you bring back KIRK LAZARUS (Robert Downey Jr.) and do a movie about that character I would definitely pay to see that. Tom Cruise has made an arrogant a** out of himself too many times for me to think he’s truly funny. He’s trying too hard to be cool again, when all he would have to have done to do that is be the old Tom Cruise, the one who kept his mouth shut about things he has no business talking about and before the whole Scientology Tom. I used to like Cruise, but now, not so much no matter what he does.

  • K000000

    I don’t see how they let this moron on the screen in the first place. Just goes to show it’s not who you know.
