First Image of Tom Cruise Rocking Out in 'Rock of Ages'

Glee has proven conclusively that America loves musicals in which familiar songs are given enthusiastic new renditions by good-looking people.  Next summer's Rock of Ages, then, is almost a guaranteed hit.  Set in the 1980's at a famous club on the Sunset Strip, the Adam Shankman-directed film adapts the popular stage musical and features actors like Julianne Hough, Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin singing recognizable Eighties songs.  Also in the cast is Tom Cruise, playing fictitious rock star Stacee Jaxx, and the first picture of a tattooed and shirtless Cruise in action has appeared online.

The image premiered over at

Cruise's big number in the musical is a take on Bon Jovi's "Wanted" and this image might just be of Stacee Jaxx mixaphorically riding a steel horse.

Adam Shankman is a choreographer-turned-director who helmed the Hairspray! remake, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, The Pacifier, and Bedtime Stories.  He's assembled a formidable cast for Rock of Ages, which is currently filmin in Miami, Florida.  In addition to Cruise and the aforementioned actors, there are also roles for Bryan Cranston, Mary J. Blige, Malin Ackerman, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Diego Boneta.

Rock of Ages is scheduled to hit theaters on June 1, 2012.
