Tom Cruise Sings — If We’re Lucky

Looks like that career resurgence is coming along just nicely for Tom Cruise: The actor and alter ego of already-annoying agent Les Grossman has been offered a role in the movie adaptation of Broadway musical Rock of Ages. Yes, that means he’d be expected to sing.

Even better, the role is that of a bartender who gets to sing a lot of 1980s hair metal, according to Deadline Hollywood. Cocktail flashbacks, anyone? For that alone – well, okay, that and the fact that, Mission: Impossible aside, Cruise really needs a visible hit – I really hope that he takes the role. If his Grossman character shows anything, it’s that he’s at the stage where he’s okay letting go of his image for the role, and having fun instead; who’s to say that he wouldn’t do wonderfully in a musical?

    This needs to happen. Graeme, you’re right — when Tom let’s go, he really is at his best. When he’s too busy being or looking cool, it comes off so fake.

    The world needs more Les Grossman, too. There should be a Les Grossman theme park ride, where you get yelled at constantly and have to avoid being punched in the face.
