Tom Cruise as Rock of Ages' Stacee Jaxx - FIRST LOOK!

Check out a shirtless Tom Cruise in character as Stacee Jaxx for his new movie, Rock of Ages!

The 48-year-old actor, sporting a tattoo on his stomach, chest and arm, posted the still on his website.

Wife Katie Holmes recently raved about Tom‘s musical chops, telling Access Hollywood his voice is “incredible.”

“[Tom] is such an amazing performer. Yes, we have music in our house and it’s amazing,” she shared.

The Adam Shankman-directed flick also stars Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Russell Brand.

  • fardous

    yum very good for 48 age im 24 and even i dont look close fr that

  • Diane

    I’m not sure Katie Holmes has a vocabulary that extends beyond “amazing” and “incredible” anymore.

    If Cruise was going for the unattractive, aging rock star – well, that is what he looks like here (IMHO).

  • AndeleCompa

    Wow…his hair is nuts. I’m feeling the whole rocker look though…and the song sets within the show are sick. Cant wait

  • Otsuka

    Wow, Tom Cruise = Legend

  • otsuka

  • Vlana

    i think it looks good..

  • someguy

    That crazy TomKat fan who posts under dozens of different nicknames is really going to town in this comments section.

    Off-topic but did everyone see where Tom’s wacky cult spray-painted the word “anon” on one of it’s own buildings in Florida?
    It’s so super-obvious that they did it to themselves even a lunatic like Romeo would have to admit it.

  • FrG

    Wow yep you have to admit the pic is pretty impressive…!!

  • wow

    just wow. This movie ah a big cast I’ve read

  • luisa

    i think he looks hot, really hot for a 48 years old man

  • busted

    Don’t usually post on Tom’s thread..

    but I actually think he looks good. It’s nice to see Actor’s like him do something different.

    Most actors are either doing the same old same old or are a Super hero..
    so I applaud Tom for branching out..

  • laverdadduele

    Haters are going to hate. I think he looks fantastic and ridiculously HOT.

  • http://deleted F.A.M.E

    i actually find this funny

  • vettenchic

    He looks exactly as he is to look… In the Broadway production, Stacee Jaxx is a has-been, 40-something… I mean, who better could they pick but the “Peter Pan-esque” Cruise who never wants to grow up…?

  • Sweetness

    Tom Cruise has another hit to add to his cache of films. Bravo !

  • Amory

    She has the vocabulary of a 10 year old – everything is “awesome.” She should keep her mouth shut because every time she opens it, she reminds us what an idiot she is.

  • Romeo

    There are plenty of older actors that still perform action-heavy roles, #29.

  • pr person


  • @annie


    What 48 plus year old actors still perform high action roles? Harrison Ford is one, but PLENTY? Come on Romeo. Most of the older actors have tried to take parts that still keep them in the spotlight, but don’t show them looking desperate.

  • Rainy

    Sorry last comment was directed to Romeo only and not annie

  • Oh Tommy, My Man!

    I don’t care about his religion. At least he has a religion and believes in SOMETHING. He also tries so hard to live a decent life. He’s a real star. He always looks great. He’s always clean and his body ROCKS! It’s hard as a rock, in fact. Yum! Luv him!

  • Lynn

    (Tom) What the hell!

  • Oh Tommy, My Man!

    Ugh, you people are disgusting in your hatred for this wonderful star who has put out so many great and entertaining films. When he says he loves acting, I believe him. He gives it his all. Tom, Bruce Willis, Arnold, Pitt and maybe Stallone can still pull off some action. Most other older men in Hollywood look terrible in the face on camera now. Harrison Ford no longer has the physique to do action, and he looks really old in his makeup. Cruise still looks incredibly fit and healthy, and he’s still handsome –even with some wrinkles.

  • dani

    @Oh Tommy, My Man!:

    He is not that good of an actor. Sorry, love struck ‘ohtommy,myman’–he does best in movies where he plays a character like himself–Jerry McGuire, Risky Business etc. Did not have the acting chops in A Few Good Men or Born on the 4th of July.

    And he does belong to a cult, not a religion, but a cult, that was founded by a science fiction writer who was homophobic and either drove his son to suicide or had him murdered. He was also a wife beater and a bigamist. He also said “if you want to get rich, found a cult.” Yep, this is what Tommy girl belongs to. A cult that believes in aliens. That uses slave labor to build tommy girls custom cars, slave labor that planted a field of wild flowers in two days for his wedding to Kidman. A cult that uses bribery, black mail and more to keep its members in line. A cult that enjoys tax exempt religious status, not because it is a religion, but because it bombarded the IRS with thousands of law suits and it was cheaper to give in than to fight them all. A cult. Tom is one of the higher ups in that cult, many believe he is the number two man in LA. He can hardly be unaware of the many transgressions the cult has performed upon members and those suppressives that have left.

    Love Tommy all you want, but there are some of us who refuse to support this evil cult by seeing his movies or those of Travolta et al. Tommy has rewritten a lot of his history via the cult’s mandates. Go do your homework and you’ll find this out easily enough.

  • keen

    @stephen haha you’re right, SO MANY HATERS
    why would katie always get paid whenever she says “tom is amazing”.. what’s wrong with that ?? tom is handsome, sexy, hot, great actor, famous and small (admitting).. and even he’s 48 now, he still looks hot and very different for his ages..

  • ellie’

    Tom is a legend..Tom can’t make a bad movie even if he tried.. Tom is gorgeous..and look at that body..are we seeing the same picture…I have never seen so many haters..Get a life..

  • annie

    I must admit that when reading about Scie and what actors, and defectors and the rest have come out to say, it does sound somewhat spooky, but I don’t believe that Tom is a bad person, I really don’t.
    As for Katies involvement in it after 6yrs, after the initial, she wanted to share things with Tom, I wonder at that too. How involved is she, nobody knows
    She’s so close to her parents, especially her mother, so again I have to wonder if things are the way that we always read about. They do know what goes on,, we are the ones who don’t really know .
    It can’t be easy for a parent to read that the man their daughter is married to, can be so easily swayed by the powers that be at Scie, as to dump his wife, because she supposedly questioned things, particularly when she participated for many years as to whatever Scie does.
    Honestly I can’t judge a man, when a lot of it just doesn’t make sense.

  • Gena

    I wanna see him as an rocker. Great actor!!!

  • Tara

    Wow that looks great, he just might pull this role off! Wasnt sure, but after seeing this shot, im sure he will. And to all those idiots, writing negative comments, you have no CLUE!

  • Super Cool

    I don’t care about that Scientology thing and I put it aside from this. He looks so badass and hot in the pic. Really great.
