Report: Les Grossman will get his own movie to the big screen…

As long as you’re Tom Cruise, you can get whatever you want. Les Grossman is a character from Ben Stiller’s, “Tropic Thunder”. The character was played by Tom Cruise. Even if the character was in the movie for just a small role, the character became a hit. Later on, Tom expressed interest in wanting to play the character more with the permission of Ben Stiller, since Ben is the one that created the character. Well, look like Ben Stiller is cool with Tom playing Les Grossman more, ’cause Paramount made it official that a Les Grossman movie is coming to the big screen.

Very cool. I loved Tropic Thunder and I thought Les Grossman was a cool character. This could be a funny movie if made right.

Although I have a feeling that the Les Grossman movie might possibly be about him dancing on stage or in a nightclub. Tom sure knows how to dance.

Report: Dustin Hoffman WILL NOT appear in “Little Fockers”, he is a bit greedy and egostitical…

Dustin Hoffman will NOT appear in “Little Fockers”, the third installment to the “Meet the Parents” series. The reason? He wants to be in the movie longer, but the studio only scripted him as a small cameo at the end of the movie, Dustin wasn’t happy about that. He also wasn’t happy with the scheduling and wanted to be payed more.

Barbara Streisand is still appearing and she’s still on for her role.

Entertainment Weekly reports:

Come on, Dustin, stop being a whiner!!! Where’s your professionalism? Of course, legendary actors like Dustin Hoffman’s ego will get in the way, that they think they are worth millions for films. He probably think he is bigger than Barbara Streisand.

At least, she’s still being a professional and accepting her cameo without whining. Dustin is just being a whiner, that is all. Gotta love greedy rich people!

Report: Jessica Alba to join “Meet the Parents 3”???

The young Hollywood actress hottie, Jessica Alba, is in talks to join the third installment of the “Meet the Parents” comedy series. She’ll be joining the cast of Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Robert Deniro, and more.

Variety Reports:

I hope they are done casting now ’cause I want them to start working on this film asap. I fucking love the Meet the Parents series. I love both of them. “Meet the Fockers” was really great ’cause it was amazing seeing Dustin Hoffman and Robert Deniro playing in the same movie together.

I’m sure they won’t dissapoint with this new one. These are great films.

While I mostly like to watch drama, horror, and action flicks, sometimes I like to watch a good comedy every now and then.

Report: Tom Cruise wants to play Les Grossman more…but will the character get his own spinoff movie?

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.

Film Review: Tropic Thunder

Starring: Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Cruise, Matthew McConaughey

Directed by: Ben Stiller

 

So I went to the mall today and finally got around to seeing the movie “Tropic Thunder” directed by Ben Stiller who also stars the leading role himself. The movie is basically about three men Tugg Speedman (Stiller), Kirk Lazarus (Downey Jr.) and Jeff Portnoy (Black) are making a high budget war movie, things in the film they were making were going so good until freak accidents happen during the making of the film. The three film makers are attacked and Speedman have been kidnapped by their enemies called The Flaming Dragon gang which is a gang that makes heroine drugs.

Jack Black’s character Jeff Portnoy is a heroine addict and all he thinks about is doing heroine, he was half scared and half excited going to the Dragons village where they make heroine ’cause he couldn’t wait to get his hands on some. Their film making ways get turned into real life and the actors are forced to portray their characters in real life instead of film in order to get out of the jungle to survive from the evil Dragon gang.

My thoughts on the film? It is one of the most funniest comedies in a long time, it was outrageous. I think it’s Ben Stiller’s best flick by far. He did a great job with this one. Most of Ben Stiller’s directed movies haven’t been all that great but “Tropic Thunder” is actually a really good one. Very good imagination and very good storytelling, pretty original I must say.

I know I said I hate Tom Cruise, but his character was actually really good in this. Tom Cruise plays a character name Lee Grossman which he is bald and fat, wears glasses, and has a beard and mustache in this one. Tom Cruise uses a lot of profanity and nasty talk in this character. Most people calls Tom Cruise’s role in this film a cameo, but it’s actually more than a cameo. Cruise is pretty much throughout the entire film, he’s pretty much a co-star, not a cameo.

Of course, Stiller is always having surprise cameos in his flicks, this one had Tobey Maguire, Jon Voight, Lance Bass, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Tyra Banks and more.

This film is extremely entertaining. Great job Ben!!!

Score for “Tropic Thunder” = **** (4 stars as in excellent)
