Tom Cruise bringing back Les Grossman

For those of you who are unfamiliar, Les Grossman was a comedic character portrayed by none other than Tom Cruise himself in a very unfamiliar face. The plot of the film follows a band of actors acting out a war documentary but being drafted into actual war. Tom Cruise’s character is the producer of the documentary.

The character of Les Grossman is defined as a profanity-spitting, diet-coke chugging, and a special love for dancing. Tom Cruise is apparently teaming up with the director of Mission Impossible 7 & 8 Christopher McQuarrie, to bring the character of Les Grossman back to life with a spinoff of his own.

In recent talks, it is still unclear if Tom Cruise’s Les Grossman will be starring in his own movie or just giving a cameo in another one of their projects. Christopher McQuarrie is known for directing 4 films of the Mission Impossible franchise (2 still in production) and another movie wherein Tom Cruise will be reportedly shooting in space!

However, seeing the current trend of bringing back old memories, it is likely possible that an entire spinoff would be dedicated to this hilarious character. Fans also admittedly demanded the return of Robert Downey Jr. too to reprise his role as well.
