I was discussing the inspired casting of Henry Fonda as a villain in Once Upon a Time In The West the other day and the question came up: ahs Tom Cruise ever been cast as an unmitigated 'baddie'?

Not familiar enough with his films to answer.

His most shocking role is most certainly Les Grossman from Tropic Thunder, who he apparently created for the film.
