Tom Cruise finally gets a singing partner in Malin Akerman for Rock of Ages
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
It feels like the part of journalist that tries to do an exposé on Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise) in ROCK OF AGES would never be cast. However, I’m happy to report that Malin Akerman has landed the gig that was originally offered to Anne Hathaway and Amy Adams. Which means maybe we can finally stop reporting about who will board and who hasn’t confirmed and who wants to join, etc., etc., etc. Sometimes it’s just tiring.
ROCK OF AGES will be directed by Adam Shankman and is an 80’s rock musical that has quite a cast that includes: Mary J. Blige, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bryan Cranston, Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta. Filming should be starting sometime this month and has a tentative release date of June 1, 2012. That means you have a whole year to prepare yourself to hear Tom Cruise and Malin Akerman belt out the Foreigner song “I Want To Know What Love Is”, that’s ample time I think.
