Malin Akerman Will Be Seduced By Tom Cruise In Rock Of Ages
Anne Hathaway considered taking the part before becoming Catwoman for The Dark Knight Rises, and Amy Adams was courted for the role before being cast as Superman's Lois Lane, but finally Rock of Ages has found someone to fill the reporter role who's already got her superhero days behind her. THR reports that Malin Akerman has taken the part of a reporter who interviews the famous rock star Stacee Jaxx, to be played by Tom Cruise.
The reporter also winds up being seduced by Jaxx, which means you need to prepare for a reeeeally awkward sex scene. Rock of Ages starts shooting May 19 in Miami, even though the Broadway show and the movie it's based on are set in Los Angeles, and the cast is full of a lot of famous names you probably already know about: Alec Baldwin, Mary J. Blige, Paul Giamatti, Julianne Hough and Cruise, plus newcomer Diego Boneta in the lead role. Adam Shankman, who recently handled the delightfully poppy musical Hairspray, is directing.
