If it's crap ... We'll tell you
The first image of Tom Cruise as rock star Stacee Jaxx in the upcoming musical 'Rock of Ages' has been released. In addition to directing, Adam Shankman is also creating the choreography for the New Line Cinema adaptation of the rock-jukebox musical. Originally portrayed by 'Nerdist' podcaster Chris Hardwick on Broadway, Cruise plays the self-centered, washed-up rocker Jaxx - soon to be ex-singer for the fictional band Arsenal who sets the entire plot into motion by sleeping with Sherrie, the hopeful waitress who main protagonist Drew Boley is in love with. As the film progresses, prepare for Cruise to cover a variety of 1980's glam metal songs including 'Wanted Dead or Alive' and 'I Want to Know What Love is'.
