Tom Cruise loves playing the Les Grossman character so much (a character he plays in Ben Stiller’s “Tropic Thunder”) that he wants to play the character much more.
In this article, Cruise doesn’t say whether Les Grossman will get his own movie where the character is the lead but Cruise does want to do short videos with the character, like for youtube and stuff like that. Cruise says he needs to speak with Ben Stiller first, before he moves forward with the character because Les Grossman is Stiller’s creation.
Tom Cruise’s next film is titled “Valkyrie” a Nazi World War II flick directed by Bryan Singer which is about a group of German officers out to kill Adolf Hitler, the film comes out Christmas day.
Tom also appeared on a new episode of “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno last night where he talked about the Les Grossman character and Valkyrie. Tom was actually a good boy on Jay Leno last night. He didn’t talk about Scientology or didn’t do any couch jumping or nothing like that, Tom was actually decent on Leno last night.

Hmmmm…will Les Grossman appear on stage at the Golden Globes to pick up his award? Will Grossman present an award at the Oscars?
This is a great character Tom plays, although I don’t like him too much. Les Grossman in “Tropic Thunder” is fucking hilarious, you gotta see it.
