Tom Cruise & Taylor Swift Teaming Up for 'Rock of Ages?'

Tom Cruise & Taylor Swift Teaming Up for 'Rock of Ages?'

Tom Cruise has been offered a supporting role in the big screen version of the Broadway hit Rock of Ages, according to Access Hollywood.

If he signs on for the project, the 48-year-old star would most likely play a bartender who gets the chance to sing some ’80s rock classics.

Taylor Swift will reportedly star as Sherrie Christian in the flick, which follows a young rocker and a small town girl chasing their dreams in L.A.

Production on the project is scheduled to begin in January.

People act as if the personality of an actor really makes a difference toward the quality of a film. Tom Cruise is a great actor, I don’t care how quirky he is or what his beliefs are, as long as he isn’t a pedophile or necrophiliac, he is cool in my book.

@Dan: …exactly dan!! my thoughts!

# 6

Nope, I don’t want to see any movie with Tom Cruise in it.

# 7

well, no one is forcing you to. So there. Shove that in your carcinogenic pipe and smoke the hell out of it. But, then again, I guess nowadays its COOL to deride on Tom Cruise.

# 8

Having seen R of A what I don’t want is to see can’t sing Taylor in it – she can write but singing is not her strong suite.

Even Miley sings better

Looks like Tom star power is really going down, supporting now a manufactured (fake) talent like TS?!

the more Tom the better

yes to taylor no to tom.

1. Tom Cruise had his day. He is not “cool” anymore.
2. Taylor Swift can’t act. Anyone see Valentine’s Day? she was so cringeworthy and horrible.
3. Why put her as lead in a movie when she sucks? .. well we have Ms Kristen Stewart as lead in Twilight…so anything is possible these days.

Exactly how is he a great actor? He shines in movies where he plays himself–over-the-top roles like Jerry McGuire etc. He su$cked big time in the dramas like 4th of July, Few Good Men etc. He was definitely the weak one in A Few Good Men. Compared to Nicholsen he was a novice. He was so unbelievable in 4th of July that he was laughable.

Unfortunately he has enjoyed being a “star” so much that his personality now interferes with any roles he takes on. Unlike Brando, Nicholsen, Pacino, DeNiro and a host of others, he is not talented enough to overcome his off screen persona and when people go to his movies they see Tom Cruise and not the character. That is why he is not a good actor. Marlon Brando was a jerk with a bad personal life, but you didn’t see Brando in Last Tango. And he became the Godfather. Tom is unable to become a believable character. His movies sell because he is the movie star Tom Cruise, not because he an actor of quality.

@@dan and kylie:

Wow, you should consider being a movie critic. I agree with everything you said…

Tom doing supporting roles?? I guess he has to do what it takes to keep Suri in $3,000 dresses…

No More Tom @ 10/28/2010 at 10:05 am

PLEASE no more Tom. He is like Jennifer Aniston forcing himself into as many movies as humanly possible. Why are we being tortured by these has-beens? Problem is, they are trying sooooo hard and come across as desperate for attention, not appealing.

I didn’t know Tom Cruise could sing.

I have no words about Tom. Just no. And no way can Taylor pull off the vocals needed for Sherrie. Can’t see Taylor playing a stripper.

@dan & kyle, I see what you mean, I agree Tom is no Marlon Brando, but having said that, I think he is an ok actor, and as longs as he s given a rle that is not too intense, he can pull it off. As for Taylor, she can’t even act in her cheesy song videos, forget about a real movie!

Ewwww!!!! Stay away Taylor!! Don’t go near that crazy old man!!
He is sooooo friggin creepy!

Tom’s only good movie was “The Outsiders” and only cause he was hardly in it, He was just a pretty face (when he WAS a pretty face)
Now all I see is crazy.
Sad

Tiny Tom should get back in his spaceship and go to Xenu rather than torturing us with his attempts to sing. He needs to STFU and go change the microchip in his wife’s head. He ruined his career when he jumped on that couch. It’s a good thing Oprah is filthy rich & does not give a fcuk but if Tiny Tom jumped on my leather couch I would beat the cra.p out of him!

Go, #7!

Big actors play supporting roles all the time, #16.

Also, you critics seem to be contradicting yourselves. He’s either too arrogant to play supporting roles or his career is so low that he HAS to take supporting roles. Which is it?

Tom Cruise is one of the least prolific actors in Hollywood, #17.
