Tom Cruise could get “Dancing” partner for “Rock of Ages”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Adam Shankman’s planned production of “Rock of Ages,” an adaptation of the smash Broadway musical, continues to round out its cast. Tom Cruise has been tapped for the lead role, and award-winning singer Mary J. Blige is part of the announced ensemble.

If all goes according to plans, they’ll be joined by “Dancing With the Stars” talent Julianne Hough, who is “in final negotiations” to appear alongside Cruise in “Rock,” according to THR.

Hough would play Sherrie, a small-town girl who moves to Hollywood in the 1980s and is nearly corrupted by the hair-metal music scene that dominated Southern California at the time.

Shankman spoke of Hough, calling her audition “nothing short of a miracle,” THR reports.

“It was a star-is-born moment,” he said.

Production on “Rock of Ages” will begin in May.
