First photo from Rock of Ages is Alec Baldwin like you've never seen him

May. 31, 2011by:

Well this is confusing. We heard a few weeks ago that Alec Baldwin had dropped out of Adam Shankman's ROCK OF AGES musical.

The role of Dupree, who sings a duet of REO Speedwagon with Russell Brand, had been offered to Will Ferrell and Steve Carrell who both turned it down, and when Baldwin left for "medical reasons," it seemed a bit suspect.

But now we have a new picture of Baldwin on set and in costume, and now I might understand why everyone was so hesitant about picking up the role. It appears it requires donning a Jennifer Aniston wig and dressing up like a New Mexico soccer mom. But it does seem to indicate Baldwin has rejoined the project.

The film also stars Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman and Bryan Cranston. If this is how people are being styled, I can't wait to see more pictures from set.

Extra Tidbit: According to our own Mike Sampson, they just played hardball and forced Baldwin to stick with his contract even though he didn't want to.

why does Brand look like a girl with a five o'clock shadow in that pic? It must be the curly hair and sucker he's holding. LOL!

He sure has, which is why he deserves to be in a better movie than this.

Alec Baldwin, like Pierce Brosnan, is only acceptable to me in a suit.
