First Pic Of Tom Cruise In Rock Of Ages
Hair today...

While it’s not exactly the first time the world has seen Tom Cruise with long hair – he’s sported extended locks in the likes of Magnolia, Interview With the Vampire and Legend – we're now getting an early look at him prancing around as OTT rock star Stacee Jaxx in the film adaptation of musical Rock of Ages.

Director Adam Shankman has been tweeting pictures from the set for a few weeks now, but this pic cropped up at Tom Cruise’s official blog so that everyone can get a look at the man in full warble, most likely performing Bon Jovi’s Wanted Dead or Alive, which is his character’s main track.

 

To see the full size pic at the Tom Cruise blog, click on the image above.

In the Rock plot, Cruise’s character is the charismatic, self-obsessed musician who wins over snooty journalist Constance Sack (Malin Akerman) with his shirtless machismo. Hope he’s also got high shoes to wear…

The rest of the story concerns a small-town girl (Julianne Hough) arriving in Hollywood seeking her musical dreams, and meeting a wannabe rocker (Diego Boneta). There’s also controversy, as the local officials and a group of developers want to knock down fading rock hotspot the Bourbon Room and begin the gentrification of the Sunset Strip. Bursting with ‘80s hair tunes, the film is shooting now and will be out next year.

Well...
At least he's trying something new and not just playing an action hero again. More
