Les Grossman: Behind His Return on the MTV Movie Awards
By PopEater Staff Posted Jun 6th 2010 09:36PM
Tom Cruise has a movie to promote (this summer's 'Knight and Day') and MTV has a movie awards show to put on, so welcome back Les Grossman, Cruise's comic creation from 2008's 'Tropic Thunder.' Cruise's cameo in the Ben Stiller-directed comedy nearly stole the entire film from Oscar-nominated Robert Downey Jr. -- no small feat.
Check out the MTV Movie Awards intro, starring Les Grossman and featuring hilarious cameos from Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Will Smith, Michael Cera:
Grossman, who didn't have to worry about having his potty mouth bleeped during the R-rated comedy smash, was kept under the radar for months leading up to the movie's release.
The popular rumor was that Cruise had based part of the grotesque performance on media mogul Sumner Redstone.
For those watching the 2010 MTV Movie Awards that hadn't seen 'Tropic Thunder' and weren't in on the joke, here's a Les Grossman highlight. Yes, there will be SERIOUS bad language so watcher beware:

According to Denise, she's not sure that her estranged ex is completely sober....
