|Constantine Maroulis & Tom Cruise|
It's seriously happening. Tom Cruise is already taking voice lessons for his upcoming role as Stacee Jaxx in the Film adaptation of Musical Rock of Ages. He will be required to learn three songs for the Film including Styx's Renegade, Bon Jovi's Wanted Dead or Alive and Foreigner's I Want to Know What Love Is, which will be featured as a Duet with Sherrie (Anne Hathaway). It doesn't appear Taylor Swift is attached to the project anymore as once rumoured, although names floating around include Mary J. Blige and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Cruise was spotted at Pantages Theatre in Hollywood this past weekend watching Rock of Ages and chatting with Producers and the Cast, posing for a Photo with Star Constantine Maroulis who may of us might remember from his stint on American Idol.
Other names in contention include Russell Brand as Lonny, the Club Manager and Alec Baldwin as Lonny's Boss, Dennis. Oh yeah. I just can't see this one failing. I've always been on Team Tom and it looks like those of us who didn't stray will soon be rewarded with perhaps his most ambitious role to date.
