First Look at Alec Baldwin and Tom Cruise in ROCK OF AGES!

There’s just something magical about classic 80’s rock music that holds a special place in my heart, from the big hairdos to the lather outfits and ridiculous getups, the 80’s is a unique time that will live on, or to better phrase it, rock on!

If someone told me that a day would come when I’d see Alec Baldwin and Tom Cruise in full blown 80’s rocker gear rocking out I would have stood in disbelief and said something in line of “shut the **** up!” and if you told me that I would get to see these two iconic stars standing side by side in full gear I would have told you to “Get the **** outta here, no way!” but it appears that day has come as pictures featuring the stars donning long hair in the upcoming adaptation of the Broadway play ROCK OF AGES (yeah you read right, Alec Baldwin in long beautiful blond hair! Go on it’s okay to call your therapist now and schedule an appointment)

The first picture below displays Baldwin alongside British comedic actor Russell Brand (AKA Katy Perry‘s plaything) and the two appears to fit well into the roles of Dennis Dupree (Baldwin) and Lonnie (Brand). And finally below that features Tom Cruise as rocker Stacee Jaxx, which could quite possibly be the most awesome photo still you’ll see since the Star Wars Rock Band Concert Poster! But of course you be the judge and take a look yourself below.

ROCK OF AGES is directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray 2007) and is based off of the book and Browdway play by writer Chris D'Arienzo, which tells the tale of a small-town girl arrives in Hollywood at the height of the 1980s rock-music scene. The film will star: Tom Cruise, Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman, Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bryan Cranston, Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta and Mary J. Blige.

Side Note: you could say I was sold by the fact the film features a talented all-star cast, or by the fact such talents as Anne Hathaway and many other A-List celebrities are rumored to possibly making cameos in this, but it was the still of Cruise as Jaxx that sold me for it’s shear awesomeness.
