Will Tom Cruise Reprise Les Grossman Character for New Movie?
The actor is in talks to portray Tropic Thunder's Les Grossman for an upcoming untitled film
There’s a chance Tom Cruise – or at least one of his big screen alter egos – may be busting out some more dance moves.
The actor, who wowed the crowd at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards during a dance-off with Jennifer Lopez as Tropic Thunder‘s Les Grossman, is in talks to once again portray the super producer in an upcoming film, Paramount Pictures and MTV Films announced Wednesday.
Though negotiations for the role have not been finalized, Cruise will be working on the untitled project as a producer along with Ben Stiller, who also starred in the 2008 action comedy.
“Les Grossman’s life story is an inspiring tale of the classic human struggle to achieve greatness against all odds,” Stiller quips. “He has assured me he plans to quote, ‘F—— kill the s— out of this movie and make Citizen f—— Kane look like a piece of crap home movie by the time we are done.’ I am honored to be working with him.”
