Cruise and Travolta now have two dinner conversation topics…

Tom Cruise has officially signed to play a mullet-haired rocker in Adam Shankman’s “Rock of Ages” – based on the musical of the same name, says Deadline.

The film, featuring a bevy of stars singing ’80s power ballads and rock tunes whilst informing the audience of their screwy love lives,  also has it’s sights on Anne Hathaway (not unlike those fellows I saw “Love and Other Drugs” with a couple of months ago).

If Hathaway signs onto the film she’d actually be sharing quite a bit of screentime with Cruise – she’d play the reporter that falls for his ageing rock-god character (they also have a bedroom scene).

Sounds fun!
