New York, May 5 (ANI): Comedic actress Malin Akerman has reportedly joined the star-studded cast of 'Rock of Ages' to play opposite Tom Cruise.
According to Deadline, Akerman has signed on to play Constance, an enterprising journalist bent on exposing Stacee Jaxx's - played by Cruise - rock star lifestyle, reports the New York Daily News.
In the musical, the two share a steamy romp in a bar bathroom and then duet on Foreigner's 'I Want To Know What Love Is'.
Finding the right Constance proved easier said than done.
Director Adam Shankman, who scored a box office hit with 2007's 'Hairspray', first approached Anne Hathaway for the part, but lost her to the Catwoman role in 'The Dark Knight Rises'.
Even Amy Adams was a no-go after she signed on to play Lois Lane in the new Superman flick, "Man of Steel."
"Rock of Ages" is scheduled to hit theaters summer 2012. (ANI)
