MTV Leans Heavily on Tom Cruise for Movie Award Promos

By Matt Van Hoven 

Remember the Ben Stiller/Robert Downey Jr. driven action-comedy Tropic Thunder? Tom Cruise had a small role as uber-prick producer Les Grossman &#151 a balding Hollywood power player with ridiculously fat hands, sweaty pits and a penchant for loud beats/shouting. The Grossman character played a large role in last night’s MTV Movie Awards &#151 allegedly as part of a push for a Les Grossman stand alone movie. Here’s a bunch of the little promos, in case for some odd reason* you didn’t catch the show.

Biscuit Filmworks USA’s Aaron Stoller directed.
