The Top Gun actor, who plays womanizing rocker Stacee Jaxx, will star opposite Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin, Mary J. Blige, Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta.
Director Adam Shankman tweeted the photo of Cruise along with the following:
- "Ladies and gents: first look at tom cruise as stacee jaxx! First day of shooting!"
Read what Shankman had to say about casting Cruise as Stacee Jaxx ... after the jump.
Adam Shankman said the following to EW about casting Tom Cruise in the film:
- â€œHereâ€™s the thing about Tom Cruise: I knew in my heart he would never put himself in harmâ€™s way about taking on a part if he didnâ€™t think he could deliver. So it wasnâ€™t until our first go around with his voice lesson that we sort of looked at each other and went, â€˜This is gonna work!â€™ And we were basically dancing around the living room and high-fiving each other because he actually has a fantastic voice."
