Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin

Though in a recent Casting Tidbits, we reported that Alec Baldwin was looking to have himself replaced in the cast of director Adam Shankman's big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical Rock of Ages, it looks like he's decided to stick around. How do we know? Well, the director himself recently posted a picture through his Twitter (via JoBlo) of Russell Brand and Baldwin himself all decked out in 80's fashion at some sort of carnival. Honestly, just this quick snapshot has me excited to see how the rest of the cast will look on screen, and really makes me think this is going to be one hell of a fun musical romp. Enjoy!

First Look: Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand in Rock of Ages

Russell Brand plays Lonnie in the film, who runs the '80s rock club The Bourbon, owned by a guy named Dennis (Baldwin). Together, they will be sing a rendition of REO Speedwagon's Can't Fight This Feeling, and that's a good enough reason as any to be excited for the film. Other people belting 80's rock tunes in the film will be Tom Cruise, Malin Akerman, Julianne Hough, Paul Giamatti, Mary J. Blige, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Bryan Cranston, so it's kind of a big deal. Here's hoping we'll see more photos of the rest of the cast coming from director Adam Shankman down the road. Stay tuned. Thoughts?

They look like they are hangovers from the 70's a little which is cool. My mates dad dressed pretty much like Baldwin forever.
