Guess who stole the spotlight from the lead stars of the movie, Tropic Thunder?
His co-stars are one in saying that Tom Cruise did. Cruise plays the role of Les Grossman, a heavy-set, balding, computer geek who financially backs the big budget Vietnam war action movie which a collection of actors (played by Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr.) are making. In “Tropic Thunder”, this unlikely group of self-absorbed prima donnas come together to film an epic war movie and unwittingly wind up in real battle.
The ‘Meet the Parents’ actor added: “We knew we were locked into an R-rating from the language in the beginning of the movie anyway, from all the war movie dialogue.
Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black) is the star of a popular gross-out comedy franchise called “The Fatties”, and now he is looking to branch out, to show the world that there’s more to him than just getting laughs from passing gas. The Funnyman said that moviegoers will be thrilled by Cruise’s hip-hop shimmy.
