Gwyneth Paltrow and Alec Baldwin have been offered roles, while Tom Cruise is still in talks for the film adaptation of the musical “Rock of Ages”.
The Wrap reports that Baldwin is being offered the part of Dennis Dupree, an ex-rocker who hangs onto his glory days by operating the Bourbon Room, a club on the Sunset Strip.
Tenacious D member Kyle Gass and musician Dee Snider previously played the role on stage, while Will Ferrell was previously rumored to have received an offer to play Dennis.
EW broke the news of Paltrow’s offer, the confirmation coming straight from the actress herself who is reading the script this week. No word on what role she would play.
Cruise is being lined up for the supporting role of Stacee Jaxx, but nothing is signed as yet.
