Tom Cruise works the stage
We get to hear him sing!
Tom Cruise. Of course.
It’s totally digitised and overproduced, but that is his voice underneath all those computers. And that is him, all open-mouthed and try-hardy, strutting his leather covered thighs, flinging sweat from by side to side.
God, think of the promotional opportunities. Like, will he show up on Jay Leno in character and throw down a performance? Please.
Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand might be my BFFs of the summer. Yeah, yeah, that line about throwing up in his pants is super lame. But this is Rock Of Ages. It’s not supposed to be for the too cool and the unreachably clever; this is exactly the right tone.
