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.
