Will Tom Cruise Sing in Rock of Ages?

You can see why an embattled star like Tom Cruise might be nostalgic for the eighties, and New Line is counting on it: The studio has offered him a supporting role in the big-screen adaptation of the eighties-celebrating jukebox musical Rock of Ages. If he accepts, Cruise would play a bartender (also very Tom Cruise in the eighties!) and get to belt out a few of the musical's hair-band classics. Deadline notes that Cruise has been looking for a singing role for quite some time, which would at least explain why he keeps following the Black Eyed Peas around and crashing their concerts like the world's most excitable, perennially leather-jacketed roadie.
