The picture above (via TomCruise.com) features Tom Cruise as Stacee Jaxx, an arrogant and charming ’80s rocker at the height of his career, in Rock of Ages, the adaptation of the the Tony-nominated Broadway musical about 1980s rockers. Jaxx sings Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive” and is a part of other numbers including “I Wanna Know What Love Is” and based on the picture alone it’s obvious Cruise is once again giving it his all.
The film is being directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray) and also stars Julianne Hough, Mary J. Blige, Paul Giamatti, Russell Brand, Diego Gonzalez Boneta, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bryan Cranston, Malin Akerman and Alec Baldwin.
New Line Cinema is set to release the feature on June 1, 2012. You can get a larger look at the photo here.
