In "Rock of Ages," Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta play the lead roles. Malin Akerman plays a journalist doing a piece on Tom Cruise‘s character, Stacee Jaxx, and winds up sleeping with him and together they will sing Foreigner's "I Want To Know What Love Is." Paul Giamatti plays Jaxx’s manager, Mary J. Blige as Justice Charlier, the owner of a strip club, Russell Brand as Lonnie, the manager of a rock club, Alec Baldwin as the owner of the same, Catherine Zeta-Jones as the villainess and Bryan Cranston as her husband and mayor of Los Angeles.

Two time Primetime Emmy award nominated Adam Shankman will serve as Producer, Director, and Choreographer. New Line Cinema and Shankman conducted an extensive talent search for the male lead role of Drew Boley before hiring Diego Boneta. American Idol's Constantine Maroulis played the lead role of Drew Boley on Broadway to fantastic reviews, and has expressed his displeasure with the studios choice not to cast him in the film version.
