First Look: Tom Cruise in ‘Rock of Ages’

Here’s your first look at Tom Cruise rocking out in the upcoming film adaptation (directed by Adam Shankman) of the smash-hit Broadway musical, Rock of Ages. Although I haven’t see the show on Broadway, I did see it twice here in Los Angeles before it ended up getting picked up for the great white way, and I thought it was totally fabulous! When I first heard that Tom was starring, I scoffed a bit but based on the just released still below, he might actually be perfect the role of aging rocker Stacee Jaxx!

Rock of Ages
Two love-struck dreamers fall in love during the height of the hair-metal scene as they navigate the seedy world of drugs, mullets, and stripping while at a club on the Sunset Strip in this adaptation of the hit off-Broadway musical. Chris D’Arienzo adapts his own stage book, with Hairspray‘s Adam Shankman handling direction and choreography duties for the New Line production. Tom Cruise, Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin, and Dancing With the Stars winner Julianne Hough head up the cast alongside Diego Boneta, who portrays the lead character, Drew Boley.
