Damn! Adam Shankman just can't get a girl to agree to sleep with Tom Cruise in a filthy bathroom!
The cast of Adam's stage-to-film musical, Rock of Ages, is shaping up rather nicely. Today, he announced via his Twitter that Russell Brand has officially signed on to play Lonny, the show's narrator, alongside Tom in the lead role of Stacee Jaxx.
However, sadly, Adam has lost another actress who was poised to play the reporter who interviews (and then sleeps with) Tom's character during a rousing rendition of Wanted Dead Or Alive. Adam first went after Anne Hathaway, but she had to turn the role down because she's playing Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rising. Then, he decided to ask Amy Adams if she wanted in, but word is she just turned him down to so she could play Lois Lane in the new Superman flick, Man of Steel.
Strike two! Tough break, Shankman!
Just a heads up - Scarlett Johansson isn't available either. Neither is Blake Lively or Emma Stone. So, cross them from the list!
