Tom Cruise's next risky business? A Les Grossman movie

Les grossman Tom Cruise probably undid 10 years of bad press with his alter-ego performance as Tropic Thunder's "Les Grossman" at Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards, so what's the next obvious step? A Les Grossman movie, of course.

Cruise told E! News backstage that a Grossman movie is coming soon. "Yup, we're working on it," he said.

The role comes from 2008's Tropic Thunder, where Cruise played an ego-crazed media mogul by climbing into mountains of makeup, fake arm and chest hair and four-lettered vitriol. Cruise stole the movie despite only having a few minutes of screen time. He even scored a Golden Globes best supporting actor nomination for his work.

Cruise reprised the role for a series of MTV ads promoting their movie awards, which were -- wink, wink -- "produced" by Les Grossman (giving him a chance to take the stage for a bawdy number with Jennifer Lopez).

And if you're wondering where Cruise picked up his dancing skills, E! News had the scoop on that too. It was from his wife Katie Holmes' choreographer, Tyce Diorio. Please, please, please, don't let his butt-slapping move become the next big thing.
