'Rock of Ages' movie finds its leading man

The "Rock of Ages" movie has hit another high note: The upcoming big-screen adaptation of the popular Broadway musical has finally found its leading man.

According to Vulture, Diego Gonzalez Boneta will play the role of aspiring rocker Drew Bowie in the '80s-era flick. Boneta, who began his career as a singer in Mexico, previously appeared as pop star Javier Luna on "90210" and country-club employee Alex Santiago on "Pretty Little Liars."

As Marquee already reported, "Rock of Ages" tells the story of small-town girl Sherrie (Julianne Hough), who moves to Hollywood with dreams of being an actress. She takes a job at the Bourbon Room, which is owned by Dennis Dupree (Alec Baldwin), and catches the eye of Drew (Boneta).

After she has an affair with bad-boy rocker Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise), an upset Drew gets her fired and Sherrie takes a job as a stripper at a gentleman's club owned by Justice (Mary J. Blige). Sherrie eventually gives up exotic dancing to find true love.

Are you looking forward to the "Rock of Ages" movie?

    that tom cruise sure is a homer. homerseckshul that is. i remember several years ago when his acting thing was going sour. he came to work in the recieving department in the fudge factory. them little keebler elves were giving him a hard time until one day he just got tired of all the ribbing. he lined up all the elves and had the biggest fudge packing party of all time. all the elves joined in. even lil timmy with the lame leg. so much fudge was packed it started coming out tommy cruises mouth. he was the hero and saved the fudge packing adventure. thank you tommy cruise. you are the hero.

    Sounded promising until I saw the names Tom Cruise and Mary J. Blige. I won't even waste a dollar when it comes to Red Box.

    She must be a midget if Cruise is going to be a co-star.

    Watch a Pre-January 8th copy of Inception. Listen closely when the actors say imagine, reality, and safe, or point pistols. You'll hear the words, Loughner, offin' her, part of the word Giffords, and much more. Some say they hear, do it.

    Other than the casting of Drew, this whole cast has me cringing. I have no interest in the movie whatsoever. All the casting directors are doing is looking for "big" names rather than looking for the right people. I hate when this happens.

    Lol..yo yo yo...maybe the b***h should have respect when she talk about people in other states. She watches Jersey shore and she had the nerve to think that everyone in Jersey is like the pigs on that show and that we all talked nasal! Eye for and eye.

    My tv conked out this morning. Thankfully the income tax $ was back in. We ordered the Samsung 55 inch 3D LED LCD tv with the 240 refresh rate. Hope it will be a good one. Its the 7000 model. Our old tv lasted 8 years. It was one of the old style Sony Wega big screens. I sure hope we like the new one as much as we loved the old one. We hope everyone is having a super happy weekend.

    Never heard of Boneta. You'd think that they'd put someone more well known in the lead. Well I'm sure it'll be a really good movie. He has alot of well known stars to back him up.

      Diego Gonzalez is a talented Mexican singer-songwriter-actor. He's been working so hard to get what he deserves. Give him a chance, "El sol sale para todos", as we say in Mexico.
