Director Adam Shankman (Hairspray) posted the above image of Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin on the set of the upcoming musical Rock of Ages, an adaptation of the the Tony-nominated Broadway musical about 1980s rockers.

Hopefully I have my information correct when I tell you Baldwin plays Dennis Dupree, an ex-rocker who owns the Rock of Ages nightclub, “The Bourbon” while Brand plays his right-hand man, Lonnie, who runs the ’80s rock club.

Baldwin and Brand are just two cogs in a massive ensemble cast that includes Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Mary J. Blige, Paul Giamatti, Diego Gonzalez Boneta, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bryan Cranston and Malin Akerman. New Line will release the film on June 1, 2012.
