Looks like Alec Baldwin is going to be in "Rock of Ages" after all. After reports surfaced earlier in the month that the actor was leaving the upcoming musical "Rock of Ages" for undisclosed reasons (some said there was a personal matter he needed to attend do), it looks like everything is hunky dory.
Director Adam Shankman has tweeted (via JoBlo) this first look at Baldwin and Russell Brand in the film and our eyes our still hurting. Brand plays Lonnie, who runs the ‘80s rock club The Bourbon, owned by Dennis (played by Baldwin). Together, they will be singing REO Speedwagon‘s “Can’t Fight This Feeling” which frankly, sounds terrifying. We're at a loss for words really, though we imagine Brand borrowed that lollipop from his wife, Katy Perry.
Anyway, the film also stars Tom Cruise, Malin Akerman, Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Paul Giamatti, Mary J. Blige, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Bryan Cranston and will open on June 1, 2012. Check out the full picture below. You may want to turn down the brightness on your computer screen.
