The Rock of Ages cast includes Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Paul Giamatti, Russell Brand, Mary J Blige, Malin Akerman, Bryan Cranston, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Alec Baldwin. Diego Boneta will be making his feature film debut with a starring role in Rock of Ages.

Hough plays a small town girl, Boneta is a city boy, and the two meet on Sunset Strip where they're both pursuing their "Hollywood dreams." The musical features rock numbers by Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, and Whitesnake.

Filming is currently underway in Florida. New Line's set a June 1, 2012 release date.
