Tom Cruise Trying to Make a Les Grossman Movie, for Some Reason

Perhaps Tom Cruise's performance as Les Grossman on last night's MTV Movie Awards wasn’t just a strange ploy to convince people to see a movie coming out later this month by reminding them of a movie that came out two years ago: It may have also been a strange ploy to stoke interest in a potential Les Grossman movie. Backstage at the Movie Awards, Tom Cruise told E! that he is trying to make such a Grossman film happen. "We're working on it. Yup, we're working on it," he said. The only circumstance in which this sounds like a good idea: if Cruise can somehow mash up his Grossman film with the long-gestating Footloose remake. Grossman has moves. [Marc Malkin/E!]
