Tom Cruise Goes After Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson, From a Distance

It was one thing for Tom Cruise to reprise his Tropic Thunder character Les Grossman and act opposite himself to promote the MTV Movie Awards, but it's a little weirder when you see him do the shtick opposite Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson and it's apparent that neither actor actually shared the set with him.

At least, that's the impression I get from how Lautner and Pattinson don't have a single two-shot with the star in these new promos, instead doing most of their work facing a body double (as does Cruise, opposite a Lautner body double that is readily apparent). It might also explain why these clips are so close to being funny, and yet each actor appears to be doing his work in a vacuum. Sorry, Twilighters. Only Kristen Stewart is worthy of shooting a promo at the same time as Tom Cruise, and only after she signs a very ironclad, comprehensive contract!

    Cruise seems to be re-inventing himself with this character and it's more than welcome from this viewer's perspective. Hopefully there's a Grossman movie idea brewing somewhere.
