Tom Cruise wins the MTV Movie Awards with Jennifer Lopez
The career comeback award of the week goes to Tom Cruise, who was easily the highlight of an otherwise blah MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night by breaking down a dance routine with Jennifer Lopez. Yeah, we didn't watch the show, either, which is why we're writing about it now.
Playing his Tropic Thunder character Les Grossman, the (wait for it) 47-year-old Cruise hopped and stepped his way through an abbreviated version of J.Lo's Get Right introduced by Ludacris. And with that, the balding Grossman character has magically rejuvenated Cruise's career in a way a fake marriage to Katie Holmes never could (although Tom did use Katie's dance instructor, Tyce Diorio, to help him learn his moves).
Sure, Cruise was promoting Knight and Day with Cameron Diaz, but this will surely fuel Internet campaigns for Cruise to make an entire Grossman picture. Hey, it got Samuel L. Jackson in a plane and Betty White on Saturday Night Live, didn't it?
