Ben Stiller loves Tom Cruise for Les Grossman
HollywoodNews.com: Actor Ben Stiller wants to get Tom Cruise on board for a new Les Grossman movie. The 44-year-old star said he’d love Cruise, 48, to take on the ‘Tropic Thunder’ role once again for a spin-off flick.
Cruise dressed as the character for a stint at the MTV Movie Awards earlier this year. Speaking to MTV News, Stiller said: “Les Grossman is notoriously difficult to negotiate with, so we’re right now negotiating with him because he wants to play himself in the film. And he’s kind of a bully, and he’s very argumentative, and he’s a little bit abusive.”
He added: “I want to try to get Tom Cruise to play him. So if I can get Tom Cruise, who’s interested to play him, if Les will agree not to play himself, then it looks like it could be coming together. A script is being written now.”
