Alec Baldwin has gone blond for “Rock of Ages.”
The 53-year-old actor, who recently joined Twitter, is seen rocking a lighter – and much longer – hairstyle in a still from the upcoming “Rock of Ages” film.
Director Adam Shankman, who’s been posting updates of the film’s progress from his Twitter account, revealed the photo on Tuesday. “First look! World premiere! Russell and Alec making my life heaven on #rockofagesmovie,” he wrote.
Baldwin stars in the movie musical as Bourbon Room club owner Dennis Dupree, who apparently has a thing for bandana neckties and denim vests.
Joining Baldwin in the snapshot is his “Rock of Ages” co-star Russell Brand, who plays the club's manager, Lonny. Although Shankman said in the past that he saw a mullet in Brand’s future, it seems long waves – and gigantic lollipops, for whatever reason - are more Lonny’s style.
The 80’s-themed movie tells the story of a small-town girl named Sherrie (Julianne Hough) who moves to Hollywood to act. She takes a job at the Bourbon Room and starts a romance with Drew (Diego Boneta), who ends up getting Sherrie fired after she has a dalliance with Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise). Although Sherrie finds herself working at a gentleman' s club owned by Justice (Mary J. Blige), she eventually leaves exotic dancing so she can find true love.
"Rock of Ages" is slated to arrive in June, 2012.
