Eww, Tom Cruise, no. No no no no. I realize that Tom is in character as Stacee Jaxx from his upcoming film “Rock of Ages,” but this photo makes me feel really dirty. Are those temporary Ed Hardy tattoos? Why is that model reaching down his pants? Doesn’t she know his manhood belongs to Xenu? And is it just me or did an overeager Photoshopper break Tom’s neck a little? I give this cover an overall grade of “No Fucking Thank You.” [Hollywood Life]
I saw “Rock Of Ages” when it was a tiny Off Broadway show. And then I saw it (a few times) in its bigger Broadway incarnation. I can safely say it was one of the most thoroughly entertaining musicals of all time. And by gosh, now it’s a huge Hollywood movie starring Tom Cruise as aging rock star Stacee Jaxx and Alec Baldwin as kooky club owner Dennis Dupree. Oh, and Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand, Malin Ackerman, Paul Giamatti and Mary J. Blige grace the screen. So yeah, just a couple of stars in this flick. For those of you who haven’t seen the play as many times as I have, it’s about a couple of small town kids with big Hollywood dreams. The story is peppered with your favorite ’80s power ballads. I don’t want to give anything away, but get your Aqua Net out, put on your acid-wash jeans and prepare to throw your lighters in the air and sing along. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be event to remember. June 15, party people!
This photo marks the first time that I have actively lusted after Tom Cruise since he hung from those cords in “Mission: Impossible.” Over the weekend, Tom tweeted this image of himself from the set of “Rock of Ages,” where he is playing Stacee Jaxx, an aging rock star lothario with long hair, a super ripped chest, and oodles of tattoos. Apparently, we can look forward to Tom’s rendition of “Wanted Dead or Alive” in the movie. “He can sing!” director Adam Shankman elaborates. “It’s a miracle.” Indeed. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
“Rock of Ages,” the Broadway musical that feels sort of like a karaoke night filled with ’80s rock ballads, is headed for the big screen. Some insanely huge names are attached to the fledgling movie: Tom Cruise, Gwyneth Paltrow, Alec Baldwin, and Mary J. Blige are all rumored to be in talks for roles. When I first read this news, I was concerned that they’d make Tom and Gwyneth the leads, which wouldn’t make any sense because the story is about two fresh-out-of-school kids who move to L.A. to become rock stars and end up working in a seedy bar. But, phew, they are being talked to about supporting roles.
