Tom Cruise May Be Making A Musical

Tom Cruise has been offered a role in the film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Rock of Ages. The story follows a young rocker and small town girl who both arrive in 1980s Los Angeles hoping to make it big on the rock scene. Taylor Swift has already been tapped to play leading lady Sherrie Christian (Swift an 80s rocker? This girl is full of surprises lately...). Tom would take a supporting role as a bartender, but would still have to put his singing abilities to the test. Will this be another scene-stealing side role like in Tropic Thunder? Cruise has been busy with Mission: Impossible 4, which he’s picturing filming in Prague on Oct. 16 so no word yet on whether he’s accepted the role. Production begins in 2011…so can he sing? The crazies usually can!
