Tom Cruise belting out Bon Jovi? It could happen!
Deadline.com reports that the 48-year-old superstar has been offered the role of a bartender in the upcoming movie adaptation of "Rock of Ages," the '80s themed Broadway musical featuring the songs of hair bands like White Snake, Styx, and Journey.
Cruise has reportedly been wanting to do a movie musical for quite some time, Deadline.com reports, but hasn't yet committed to the project.
Meanwhile, Ben Stiller tells MTV that a script is in the works for a movie starring Cruise's hip-hop loving, foulmouthed "Tropic Thunder" movie mogul Les Grossman.
"Les Grossman is notoriously difficult to negotiate with, so we're right now negotiating with him because he wants to play himself in the film," jokes Stiller, who wrote and starred in "Thunder." "I want to try to get Tom Cruise to play him. So if I can get Tom Cruise, who's interested to play him - if Les will agree not to play himself - then it looks like it could be coming together."
