Hollywoodnews.com: Wait, MacGruber is joining the ensemble of “Rock of Ages?”
OK, it’s too much to hope that Will Forte’s clueless secret agent will be included in Adam Shankman’s adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, but THR does report that the “Saturday Night Live” comedian has been added to a cast that already includes Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin Malin Akerman, Mary J. Blige, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Julianne Hough, and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Forte will play Mitch Miley, the head anchor of a network news show. As the trade reports, the character wasn’t in the stage musical. And with Forte in the part, it’s unlikely he’ll just be seen on a TV in the background.
