The orginal LA musical starred Chris Hardwick. DJ on legendary rock station in LA and also appeared in Rob Zombie’s horror films House of 1000 Corpses and Halloween 2. Tom Cruise is a good actor but Chris will be a tuff act to follow!  

Tom Cruise is to star in the movie version of hit musical Rock of Ages. Cruise will play ageing musician Stacee Jaxx in the film. Director Adam Shankman – who helmed the hit screen musical of Hairspray in 2007 – believes the star will excel in the role.

Shankman told the Toronto Sun: “I think we’re going to see him every drop the rock’n’roll god. He’s pouring himself in this part in a way I’ve never had an actor do. It’s pretty intense. Between the voice lessons, the incredible study… researching the period, it’s like 1987, just going there!”

Cruise will perform several rock songs of the ’70s and ’80s, including Styx’s ‘Renegade’ and Bon Jovi’s ‘Wanted Dead Or Alive’. It is heavily rumoured that Anne Hathaway will soon sign on to the project, and will perform a duet of Foreigner’s I Want To Know What Love Is with Cruise.

Shankman added: “We are talking to Alec Baldwin and Gwyneth [Paltrow] can’t do it, she’s unavailable. There’s somebody else pretty fabulous… there may be some Russell Brand.”
