Alec Baldwin ready for “Rock of Ages”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Alec Baldwin has proven to be a man of many talents over the course of his career. He can be intimidating, hilarious, and intimidatingly hilarious. On “30 Rock,” he’s often all three – in the same scene.

But can Baldwin sing? Or dance?

He better be able to, as he’s reportedly set to join Adam Shankman’s planned production of “Rock of Ages,” a movie musical that already has lured Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige and Julianne Hough of “Dancing With the Stars.”

“So, based on info I got today, I’m gonna confirm Alec Baldwin as Dennis in Rock Of Ages. Hollah,” Shankman tweeted over the weekend.

Dennis Dupree, in the show, is a former rock star who operates a Hollywood club. Baldwin’s reps were contacted, but did not immediately respond to confirm the casting move.

Leave that to Shankman, who followed up his initial Tweet with, “Can’t wait to start #rockofagesmovie. Julianne Hough, alec Baldwin, Mary j Blige, Tom cruise confirmed. I love my cast. More to come.”

And we love Twitter, which now has just as much power as the trades.
