Alec Baldwin goes long for 'Rock of Ages'

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.

    This musical so rocks. I can't wait to see what they do with it on film. I just really hope they keep to the story. Laughable as it is, it is still a story. I think the casting is brillant. 🙂 I personally can't wait to see the repoire between Brand and Baldwin. If you have seen this show live, you know that these characters steal the show.

    Baldwin likes to cover himself in parmessan cheese then have strange men rub their butts all over him.

    Russel Brand = Weird Al

    Difference – Nothing. Both limited in talent and scope.
