Leading man Tom Cruise has signed on to star in a new film where he will deliberately make himself look unattractive, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Cruise's character Les Grossman-a foul-mouthed movie producer in Tropic Thunder-is getting his own movie, Paramount and MTV Films announced on Wednesday.
Cruise brought back the wacky character at last Sunday's MTV Movie Awards to huge laughs. Cruise will produce the spin-off with Ben Stiller, who starred in the original film.

"Les Grossman's life story is an inspiring tale of the classic human struggle to achieve greatness against all odds," said Stiller in the announcement. "He has assured me he plans to quote, 'F**king kill the sh*t out of this movie and make Citizen f**king Kane look like a piece of crap home movie by the time we are done.' I am honored to be working with him."
