MTV Movie Awards Promos Include Tom Cruise as Les Grossman from Tropic Thunder

by Dan Koelsch

The MTV Movie Awards has long been known for their spoofs and hilarity in general, even in their commericals. This year, we’ve gotten some good commercials featuring host Aziz Ansari, as well as Justin Bieber. Now the awards show is stepping it up a notch by featuring “Hollywood mega mogul” Les Grossman in a series of commercials that include some of the Twilight stars.

If you’ve seen the 2008 action comedy Tropic Thunder, you will definitely remember the vile, disgusting, and dancing movie producer Grossman. However, what many people didn’t realize until the credits or later, was that the character was played by Tom Cruise. This beloved cameo instantly brought back fans who were weary from his Katie Holmes/Scientology PR disaster.


So, with a big movie to promote, it’s no surprise he’s back to fill the role for MTV. The is being “produced” by Grossman, so the videos feature him interacting with stars who will be guests on the show, including Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson, and even Cruise himself. Check out the spots below.









The 2010 MTV Movie Awards air live on Sunday, June 6th.
