Gwyneth Paltrow offered a role maybe opposite Tom Cruise in Rock of Ages

Gwyneth Paltrow has been offered another role where she gets to sing again.

No, it's not another episode of GLEE. This role is one for the big screen.

Paltrow has been offered a role in the Adam Shankman (HAIRSPRAY) directed musical, ROCK OF AGES. The actress said before the premiere of COUNTRY STRONG, "It sounds cool. I just got the script and I will read it on the plane home tomorrow. But it sounds like it could be fun." AGES is the story of a young couple told through classic songs of the 80's.

Jenno Topping, who is producing both COUNTRY STRONG and ROCK OF AGES confirmed that Tom Cruise is in talks for a role. "It’s real. Although, it is not cemented,” the producer said.

Apparently someone else may want to use her talents as well. Paltrow said this about another "offer", “[Country Strong co-star Tim McGraw] keeps joking that I should go on the road as his opening act. And I keep saying, ‘Let’s do it. Let’s make it happen.’ I don’t know about a whole tour but maybe a string of nights could be fun. I will probably do some more Glee episodes and maybe some more films that involve singing, but I’m not sure I would ever quit my current job and become a full-time singer. I love my day job and we already have a musician in the family.”

Okay GLEE fans, I lied. She will be doing another episode. Sigh.
