SNL alumni Will Forte has joined the All-Star Cast for the musical Rock of Ages. Adam Shankman is the man responsible for directing the film version of the Broadway musical. Forte will be taking on new character made for the movie.
Here is what they reported.
Ages tells the story, replete with hair-band music, of a small-town girl (Hough) who comes to Hollywood for the 1980s music scene and is nearly destroyed by it. Although she falls for a budding musician named Drew (Boneta), she also catches the eye of Stacee Jaxx (Cruise), an arrogant rocker at the height of his career. She ends up as a stripper in a club run by Blige but also finds true love at the end.
Forte is playing Mitch Miley, the head anchor of a network news show. The part was not in the stage musical.
