The trailer for Adam Shankman‘s Rock of Ages is here and it has everything you’d expect. Big stars with terrible haircuts, hot babes, and your favorite ‘80′s rock anthems made faaaabulooousssss. That’s not to say that it looks bad. The whole thing is handled in a tongue-in-cheek way and the jokes hit exactly as they should. This is mostly thanks to Words with Friends champion, Alec Baldwin. He may not be a courteous flyer but the man can sell a vomit joke.

Other notable standouts are Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Malin Akerman. Cruise because he nails the bored rock star part, Zeta-Jones because she chews the scenery as an uptight conservative protestor and Malin Akerman because you almost see her boobs.

15 photosCan’t Get Enough Of Hough In ‘Rock Of Ages’ Pics

Why should Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin be the only ones who get to dress ridiculously on the set of Rock Of Ages? Tom Cruise likes to have fun too, you guys. Remember Les Grossman? Well, it looks like Tom is sinking his teeth into this character just as deeply if not more. It’s as if he’s completely transformed himself into Mark Wahlberg from Rock Star.

I was on Tom Cruise’s website getting lost in those eyes when I discovered the first pic of Cruise in costume as the heavy metal wailer Stacee Jaxx in Adam Shankman‘s adaptation. It’s likely he’s belting out “Renegade” by Styxx or an original song he wrote that goes,”I am Tom Cruise!!! Tom. Tom. T-tom. C-c-c-c-c-cruuuuuuissseeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOWZA!” It’s titled “Tom Cruise.”

Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta are just two of the stars of Adam Shankman‘s film/ponzi scheme Rock of Ages, but they are the sole stars of the photos in this gallery. So check them out, chilling by the beach, chilling on the boardwalk, chilling in the water — and remember, they’re getting paid for this.

The movie also stars Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bryan Cranston, and Malin Akerman. Can’t wait until we get som Paul Giamatti beach pics! (ComingSoon)

UPDATE: In sad news for Alec Baldwin, it turns out that he is doing Rock of Ages after all, according to Deadline. Below is the original article, which you can now make fun of for being inaccurate in retrospect.

Adam Shankman, director of Rock of Ages, has been shamelessly bilking Hollywood star after Hollywood star into appearing in his movie. Now, finally, it appears that at least one person has broken free of his seductive grasp – star of”30 Rock” and those ads for Hulu, Alec Baldwin.

Baldwin has dropped out after being confirmed by Shankman back in March. He was supposed to play “Dennis Dupree, the owner of the Bourbon Room, the Sunset Boulevard nightclub at the center of the movie.” I guess now they’ll have to get Stephen Baldwin to do it instead?

Some of the other actors not as savvy as Alec Baldwin include Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman, Bryan Cranston, and Mary J. Blige. Well, you know what they say – never give a sucker an eve break or smarten up a chump. (The Hollywood Reporter)

The post Catherine Zeta-Jones Latest To Be Suckered Into ‘Rock of Ages’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The filmmakers behind Rock of Ages have no shame. They’ve duped poor, defenseless Tom Cruise into appearing (among others), and now they’ve managed to ensnare Catherine Zeta-Jones in their web. Here’s director Adam Shankman on Zeta-Jones, presumably barely able to contain his malicious grin:

“She’s the moral majority person, kind of like if Tipper Gore and Anita Bryant had a love child in that era. To have a great actress who won an actress in this genre with ‘Chicago‘ is wonderful.”

Unfortunately, it looks like Shankman’s reign of scheming will not end with Catherine Zeta-Jones, since he has at least two parts left to cast: Tom Cruise’s love interest (who was originally going to be played by Amy Adams but she decided to be Lois Lane instead), and “the mayor.” Please, actors and actresses, stay inside your homes for your own safety.

Your little sister might be excited that Diego Gonzalez Boneta (“Pretty Little Liars,” “90210“) will officially star in Rock of Ages, the Broadway-musical-to-movie based on 80s songs you’re really sick of hearing at karaoke. The cast includes folks you know, like Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige and Alec Baldwin, and now, one guy you probably didn’t know existed. Well, he does.

Boneta plays a young, wide-eyed traveler to Los Angeles named Drew who dreams of “making it” as a rock star. Yeah, we’re gonna make it. Make our dreams come true in LA. Yeah. Of course, Drew becomes a bus boy, which seems like less of a “dream” and more of a sad reality. Hopefully that’s addressed with the inclusion of the beloved Foreigner b-side “Seems Like Less of a Dream, More of a Sad Reality (Megan’s Song).”

Russell Brand, who is in every other movie these days, has also officially joined the cast. So does that mean James Franco will be wedged in there somehow too? Don’t stop believin’, you guys.

Adam Shankman is directing Rock of Ages for New Line. (Deadline)

Paul Giamatti had better make an appointment with the throat masseuse. He’s just taken a role in Adam Shankman‘s big screen version of Rock Of Ages.

In the film, he’ll play the manager of Tom Cruise’s band. So basically he’ll be singing about green M&M’s on the rider and the disposal of drunken, passed out groupies. I believe Toto had a song about that. (Deadline)

I do not watch “Dancing With The Stars,” but if I did, perhaps I’d be dancing around my tiny apartment with the knowledge that Julianne Hough is starring in a major motion picture. I don’t see many musicals, but if I did, I migh break out into song about the Broadway musical Rock of Ages being Hough’s big new starring role. However, since I’m not big fan of either thing, I will remain calm and unexcited.

Hough is starring alongside Tom Cruise and Mary J. Blige as “a girl who comes to Los Angeles looking for the dream.” Ughhh. Tom Cruise plays a rock star named “Stacee Jaxx.” Ughhh. The film’s director, Adam Shankman (Cheaper By The Dozen 2 – Ughhh), describes Hough as being “the most open, sweet ray of sunshine of the world…” Ughhh. He goes on to announce that the lead music producer in the film is from”Glee.” Ughhhhhhhhhhhh.

Wow, where did all those “ughhh”-saying zombies come from?

So I probably won’t be catching this one, you guys. If I want to hear Journey and Bon Jovi songs, I’ll just play them in my gloriously plot-free, “Glee“-free iTunes library. (TheWrap)

Tom Cruise has made it official. No, not that. The Rock Of Ages casting thing. He’s now officially signed on to shake his ass for Adam Shankman in the Hollywood adaptation of the Broadway hit.

The first name to sign on, Cruise will play rock god and Arsenal front man Stacee Jaxx. His big number in the film will be Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead Or Alive.” I can’t say speak to his singing ability but I’ve always enjoyed Cruise in his villain roles. So to see him play the sneering, egotistical rock star should be fun. At the very least, he’s sure to have ridiculous 80′s hair. And screen-grabs of that will make my job fun for at least six more months. (THR)

Tom Cruise is getting ready for his next quirky supporting role, this time as seasoned, over the top rock superstar Stacee Jax in director Adam Shankman‘s New Line adaptation of the smash Broadway musical Rock of Ages. Are fans clamoring to see Cruise belt out hair metal hits? We’ll just have to wait and see if this will be another memorable, scenery chewing Cruise supporting role, ala his turn as motivational speaker Frank T.K Mackey in Magnolia, or scummy exec Les Grossman in Tropic Thunder.

Whether or not they are, Cruise has to know that roles like this are what have garnered him the most acclaim in the past few years, as star turns in conventional movies like Knight and Day come and go with little fanfare. There’s even a Les Grossman movie in the works, so perhaps the age of quirky Cruise is upon us. Maybe a weird buddy movie between he and Nicholas Cage could be in our future. That’s a double dose of crazy in one convenient package. Let’s do this, Hollywood! (Deadline)

To say that Mean Moms scribes Dara and Chad Creasey have some big shoes to fill is an understatement. But if anyone is up to the job, it's the writing team behind Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip, Pushing Daisies, and Legally Blondes. Which is apparantly a thing that happened after Reese Witherspoon became president or something in Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, and Blonde. (Variety)

Choreographer-turned-director Adam Shankman has been tapped to co-produce this year’s Oscar telecast. The Hairspray director and So You Think You Can Dance judge will take the reins with movie executive Bill Mechanic. A fact my brosefs and I are way stoked about.
 
I can imagine it now. A long game of touch football in the park, then a nice walk in the crisp winter air, quick stop-off for some tapas and then me and the bros will all curl up and see how the Shank-Man can butch up the Academy Awards. I mean, did you see Zac Efron’s Pool Party? That was a machismo fiesta. Reminded me of my fraternity days. (Variety)
