Letting Tom Cruise do his thing in 'Tropic Thunder’
Just before hitting the wall on commercial endeavors, McConaughey popped up in Ben Stiller's "Tropic Thunder" in a role you could easily have seen going to someone from the character actor fringe. But he brought a lot of charisma to it and, smartly, faded into the background a bit opposite Tom Cruise's manic, bald, brash producer character, which ended up being one of the things audiences talked about most after seeing the film. It sort of made people wish they could see more of him in movies they actually wanted to see.
