Tom Cruise Guided by Paul Giamatti

by Iain Alexander

Tom Cruise is getting Paul Giamatti‘s management advice in his new ‘Rock Of Ages‘ flick.

From fighter pilot to rock band front man, Cruise continues to fly his career in all kinds of interesting directions. With the boost of Giamatti’s wit and Tom’s need to be doing acrobatics on and off the set, the pairing is a great on screen match.

Other actors featuring in the movie include the likes of anti Charlie Sheen supporter Alec Baldwin, controversial show host and Comic Relief activist Russell Brand and Mary J. Blige. Is this a real casting or another hoax via some agency? Casting is never a sure thing ahead of a film’s actual production, but what we do know is this cast couldn’t be more different if it tried.

Adam Shankman will direct the Broadway musical remake, with the film’s release scheduled for the summer of 2012.
