Tom Cruise will appear in hit comedian Ben Stiller's next film, Tropic Thunder. In it, the actor He will make a brief cameo in which he will give life to the head of the film studio for which the war film is shot, in which the group of comedians who star in the film work and who, in addition to Stiller, are made up of Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. A performance that will not require much effort for the Hollywood superstar, not only because of the briefness of the role, but because in real life Cruise is the co-owner of a movie studio, the resurrected United Artists.
Gossip says that Cruise has gladly accepted this cameo, not only because of a professional colleague with Stiller and his team but because his character will have a parody tone that could even remind the director of Paramount, Summer Redstone. A figure that the actor does not have much affection for, after the past will see Redstone announced to the media that Paramount terminated its contract with Cruise because "his personal conduct" was not "acceptable" to the studios.
Curiously, and according to information published by the Hollywood Reporter, the head of studio that Cruise will play in Stiller's film will be characterized by his despotic behavior and his sick obsession to see if his actors are perfectly prepared to play their roles.
Tropic Thunder will be Stiller's fourth film behind the scenes and narrates the adventures of a group of comedy actors who take part in a war mega-production and who, curiosities of fate, when traveling to the filming end up trapped in a real war. The film has se will premiere on July 11 next year, but it will arrive in Spain two weeks later, on July 25.
