Is it just us, or does this seem like a pretty strange, but potentially awesome combination?
Last month we learned that Tom Cruise was
uncharacteristically in talks to join the movie version of the Broadway musical Rock of Ages.
Now, Mary J. Blige has been added to the "in talks" list.
Nothing has been confirmed yet, but according to insiders, Mary J "is all in" to play the role of Justice Charlier, the owner of "Sunset Strip's exotic dance venue The Venus Club."
Cruise is still in talks for a role in the movie, but instead of playing Bourbon Room owner Dennis Dupree, he'd like to play Stacee Jaxx, the show's villainous rock singer.
We hope they both sign on to this project! Mary J's already got heat around her after signing on to play Nina Simone in the upcoming biopic, and we just think it would be fun to throw Tom Cruise in the mix too!
If Mary J has the guts to take on Nina Simone, you can get your rocker on, Tom!
Would U like to see these two share the big screen with each other?
