First official image of Tom Cruise as Stacee Jaxx in Rock of Ages is epic!

Jun. 17, 2011by: George Merchan

Oh man, shit just got real!

We've already seen the nearly absurd photo of Alec Baldwin in full rocker mode as 'Dupree' a few weeks ago, and now we're getting our first official look at Tom Cruise's bad boy rocker 'Stacee Jaxx' in a hilariously epic power ballad moment! (Click the image below for BIG.) I really have no idea yet if this film is going to be great kitschy fun or just a straight-up disaster, but I do know that it'll be a must see come next summer.

ROCK OF AGES is currently filming and will open June 1, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: Much like slow-motion, spotlights just make things look awesome.

WOW! This is pretty cool! I like the logo. It reminds me of the old movie Heavy Metal. What is this movie about?

TC is fucking awesome.
But more importantly: Where's the first fucking official image (or even trailer) for M:I 4???!

I hope...

that all the actors really sing and really play the insturments and stuff. And don't pretend to sing and play.

He can sing too

All I can say is that if you think he looks cool, wait till you hear his singing. He hits a home run with it.

Big hair, big poses - what's not to like?

Love cheesy 80s rock, will definitely check out Rock of Ages. Cruise can be terrific when he brings his A game

I've been wanting to see this musical and I am sad I missed it when it was in SF. This is a great photo though. Cruise is at his best when he's just having fun and doing something completely wild, new, and totally out there. So, he should do well in this role.

I couldn't agree more. He totally made and stole Tropic Thunder for me as Les Grossman.

ha ha great pic & Cruises choices as of late just looks like he is having a grand time making movies now, I hope he comes back in a big way with M:I 4 & this movie, as well as the planned Les Grossman film.

Not bad at all. At first I thought Cruise was going to be something like Steve Perry of Journey but he still looks awesome in this outfit.

The thumbnail image incorporated in the article made me think Ronnie James Dio.
Cruise got ripped for this part it looks like. I'm sure he's enjoying wearing those platform heel boots too.
