First Look: Tom Cruise Rocks as Stacee Jaxx in 'Rock of Ages' Musical
At the end of last month we got quite an interesting first look at Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin decked out in some obnoxious 80's fashions on the set of Adam Shankman's new big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical Rock of Ages. However, now we have an even better picture of the biggest star of the film. The official Twitter for Tom Cruise revealed the first look on TomCruise.com of at the actor rocking his heart out as Stacee Jaxx, an arrogant yet charming rock star at the top of his career. In the 80's musical, Cruise will belt out a rendition of Bon Jovi's famous ballad Wanted: Dead or Alive. See the awesome photo below!
In addition, Malin Akerman will play a journalist writing a piece on rocker Jaxx but ends up in bed with him and singing I Want to Know What Love Is by Foreigner. The rest of the film will feature songs from great bands of the 80's like Styx, Journey, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Poison and Asia. Singing these signature tunes will be Cruise, Brand and Baldwin joined by even more talented names like Julianne Hough, Paul Giamatti, Mary J. Blige, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Bryan Cranston. Honestly, I have a feeling this could end up becoming one of my favorite musicals. We'll definitely be keeping an eye on this!
