Back in May of last year, Tom Cruise stole the show at the MTV Movie Awards by appearing as his Les Grossman character, an obnoxious studios executive from "Tropic Thunder." The actor also shot some promos as Grossman for the awards show.
The following month, news began spreading that Cruise did all that to see if there was interest in a Les Grossman movie. It turned out that there was, because a few days later, Paramount Pictures officially announced the project.
Now a year later, MTV caught up with Bill Hader to get an update on the film. "[Michael Bacall (Scott Pilgrim vs the World)] wrote it and he has told me some really funny scenes from it," he said. "It's gonna be great."
Hader didn't reveal any of those funny scenes, but at least we're one step closer to a Les Grossman movie.
The Studio that Cruise has made billions of $'s that decided to pull the rug out from under him for what... jumping on a couch or his Scientology beliefs... who gives a rat's ass?! Now they're working with him again.
f*ck you Paramount. It's not just Cruise that has an ego problem.

First, take a big step back... and literally, f*ck YOUR OWN FACE! I don't know what kind of pan-pacific bullsh*t power play you're trying to pull here, but Asia Jack is my territory. So whatever you're thinking, you'd better think again! Otherwise I'm gonna have to head down there and I will rain down in a Godly f*cking firestorm upon you! You're gonna have to call the f*cking United Nations and get a f*cking binding resolution to keep me from f*cking destroying you. I'm talking about a scorched earth, motherf*cker! I will massacre you! I WILL f*ck YOU UP!
At first thought, I thought this was probably the worst idea in recent memory. Then, just thinking about it, this movie has the potential to be very interesting. Think Entourage-type movie.
Les Grossman would be an executive at a studio surrounded by a bunch of other square executives and have that based around a big movie coming out. It'll be a Les Grossman movie by name, but it'll probably be more ensemble than anything. I think it has potential.
The only thing I can think of them doing this movie is in a psuedo-doc*mentary like Spinal Tap. A lot of fiction mixed with actors playing themselves. Hollywood making fun of itself. A story around the rise and fall and rise again of Grossman.
