Tom Cruise revived the overweight studio exec character from “Tropic Thunder” Thursday night on Conan O’Brien‘s show at Comic-Con in San Diego. 11 years later and Tom has NOT lost the famous dance moves that catapulted Les into legendary status.
Tom made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con to promote the first “Top Gun: Maverick” trailer — which looks SICK, BTW — and later stopped by “Conan” to reminisce about the Ben Stiller-directed action-comedy.
Ya gotta watch … after busting out the dance moves and explaining how that sequence all came about … Tom summed up the glory days by busting out Les’ signature cursing dialogue — at Conan’s request. Tom obliged.
Tom, of course, dropped the classic Les line — “Would you stand back and literally f*** your own face?!?” — during a scene with Matthew McConaughey as Rick Peck.
There was no fat suit or bald head for Tom to slip into … but his delivery was spot on, which begs the question … how about “Tropic Thunder 2”?!?!
