We can’t believe it but Tom Cruise will shake his groove thang and belt out some serious tunes in the big screen adaptation of Rock of Ages. We initially reported on this story back in December when it was rumored that the actor was “circling” the project. Now according to THR, that rumor has become a reality. Cruise is in talks to star in the musical.

Cruise “will play Stacee Jaxx, the arrogant and charming star at the top of his career. Jaxx sings Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead of Alive” in the theater production.” Are you ready to see Cruise mix it up with long shaggy hair and leather pants? We’re not but we’ll have no choice but to watch.

Cruise is joining the current cast, which already includes Mary J. Blige and Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand are said to be up for parts in the film.

We had no idea that Cruise had a singing bone in his body. It will be a little strange seeing Ethan Hunt get down with eighties glam rock if you know what we mean. Brand we can understand, and even Baldwin to a certain extent but Cruise? Let us think about it.

What do you think of Cruise joining Rock of Ages?
