Gonzalez Boneta Scores “Rock of Ages” Lead

Mexican actor and singer Diego Gonzalez Boneta is in talks to join the film adaptation of Broadway musical “Rock of Ages” for New Line reports The Wrap.

20-year-old Boneta (“Pretty Little Liars,” “90210,” “Mean Girls 2”) would play the lead role of Drew Boley, a singer-guitarist described as “the nicest aspiring rocker you’ll find in the Bourbon Room.” However, no official offer has been made at this time.

Boneta joins a cast that includes Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Mary J. Blige and Alec Baldwin. Adam Shankman directs the film which will kick off production shortly with the aim of a release next June.
