Considering that it was both a reasonable box office success -- it took in close to $200 million worldwide -- and fairly warmly received (even picking up an Oscar nomination for Robert Downey Jr), it's surprising the extent to which the 2008 all-star comedy "Tropic Thunder" has slipped from memory -- we enjoyed it, but it's certainly not a film we find ourselves ever rewatching. But there's one aspect of the film that backers at Paramount are certainly keen to keep alive: Les Grossman, the vulgar, hirsute studio executive played by Tom Cruise in an against-type, near-career-reviving cameo in Ben Stiller's film.
