Former Dancing with the Stars sweetie Julianne Hough is making her way to the big screen. She’s currently in Miami where she’s shooting the film Rock of Ages with an all-star cast including Tom Cruise, Malin Akerman, Russell Brand, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti, Mary J. Blige and Alec Baldwin. The upcoming film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical showcases popular rock songs from the 70s and 80s from the likes of Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Poison and Asia, among others. Julianne nabbed the female lead of Sherrie Christian, a small-town girl with big dreams–apparently beating out Hollywood heavy-weights like Anne Hathaway. Sherrie sings a duet of Foreigner’s “I Want to Know What Love Is” with Cruise’s character, Stacee Jaxx, an aging musician whose glory days are long past.
Directed by Adam Shankman, the rest of the cast breakdown includes Diego Boneta (of Pretty Little Liars) playing the lead role of Drew Boley, a bus boy/aspiring rocker trying to get his big break in LA, Russell Brand as Lonny who runs the rock venue The Bourbon Room and serves as the narrator of the movie, Alec Baldwin as Dennis Dupree, owner of The Bourbon Room, Paul Giamatti as the manager of Jaxx’s band, Mary J. Blige as Justice Charlier, proprietor of exotic dance establishment The Venus Club, Bryan Cranston as mayor of Los Angeles, and Catherine Zeta-Jones as his wife. Julianne’s beau, Ryan Seacrest, must be mighty proud of his honey. Here she’s SoCal fresh in classic Ray Ban aviators, available in dozens of frame/lens color combos. –rpuccia
