Alec Baldwin Excited to Work with Tom Cruise on 'Rock of Ages'

PRNewsFoto/Turner Classic Movies(LOS ANGELES) -- Alec Baldwin, who's joined the cast of the upcoming film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Rock of Ages as former rocker Dennis Dupree, is excited about working opposite the musical's star and director. 

Baldwin tells The Hollywood Reporter, "I'm excited to be able to work with Tom Cruise and Adam Shankman.  I love Adam. He directed the Oscars when I hosted, but to do a movie with Tom will be fun." 

Baldwin added that he hired a voice coach because his character gets to sing, but he admitted it will be "something very modest; I might sing 'Yeah, yeah, yeah,' or something like that."  While his character singing is OK with him, Baldwin said you won't see him dancing. He explained, “It's not that kind of thing. It's not Glee, it's rock and roll." 

Rock of Ages also stars former Dancing with the Stars pro Julianne Hough and singer Mary J. Blige.
