Note to Paramount: you could also earn millions by NOT making this movie.
Paramount Pictures is taking its UNTITLED Les Grossman Project way too far. A press release announcing the film treated Grossman as if he was a real "mega-producer" rather than a somewhat-humorous fictional character. While I wasn't a big fan, the release does allow me to use block quotes, and I'm a big fan of that! Paramount Pictures and MTV Films announced today that they are set to develop a movie around mega-producer Les Grossman. The announcement comes on the heels of Grossman’s groundbreaking and visionary production of the soon-to-be Emmy® award-winning 2010 MTV Movie Awards Sunday night. Tom Cruise, along with Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld of Red Hour Films will produce and have secured the life rights to Grossman. See what I mean? Block quotes rule. The release goes on to say that Grossman played himself in Tropic Thunder, even though we all know it was Tom Cruise. It also claims that Tom Crusie will be portraying the real Grossman in the new movie, even though there is no real Grossman to portray! I need a map to keep up with all the ins and outs. I haven't been this god damn confused since Garth Brooks was dating the awful rocker, Chris Gaines.
If MTV keeps up these humorous bits I might just watch their movie awards show this season. Aziz Ansari and Tom Cruise have been killin' it. Yesterday we saw Cruise as Tropic Thunder's Studio Exec Les Grossman rip the pants off a Risky Business version of himself, and now he's telling Rob Pats to not touch a single hair on his oily scalp. A good mane can get a man far in this world. Example: Rob Pats. Check out the promo after the jump. The "MTV Movie Awards" airs June 6.
Tom Cruise dons a fat suit again to play Tropic Thunder studio exec Les Grossman in this promo for the "MTV Movie Awards." Apparently Les was a producer on the set of Risky Business, and it was his brilliant idea for Tom Cruise's character Joel Goodsen to slide in the room in his tighty-whiteys. I wonder what it's like to slap the ass of a younger version of yourself? I'm pretty sure Time Cop rules apply and you get sucked up into your own butthole. Hey, blame physics, not moi.
