Tom Cruise as Sumner Redstone?!

April 4, 2008


Just when you thought having Robert Downey Jr. playing blackface was ballsy enough, rumors were confirmed that Tom Cruise dons a fat suit for a cameo as a bald, hairy-chested, foulmouthed, dirty-dancing movie mogul in the summer's big action comedy, Tropic Thunder.

The New York Times article describes Tom Cruise's Sumner Redstone cameo as the best thing in the movie. I don't know if that's a good thing. I mean, Tom Cruise in a fat suit is funny, but it's not that funny.
