Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin is reportedly in line to star alongside Gwyneth Paltrow and Tom Cruise in Rock Of Ages.

The three stars are all in talks to appear in the movie adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Risky Business Blog and Alec has apparently been offered the part of Dennis Dupree, the ageing rocker who runs the Rock Of Ages club while he hangs on to his glory days.

Megamind's Will Ferrell was reportedly originally offered the part, but turned it down, before it was offered to The Office's Steve Carell.

The big-screen adaptation of the hit musical, set in Los Angeles, will be directed by Hairspray's Adam Shankman and follows the story of a young couple through 1980s rock hits.

Gwyneth, who shows off her vocal skills in new movie Country Strong, has been offered the lead female role.

"It sounds cool - I just got the script and I will read it on the plane home tomorrow, but it sounds like it could be fun," she told Entertainment Weekly.

Tom Cruise is also "in discussions" for a part in the film, with producer Jenno Topping saying: "It's real, although it is not cemented."

Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
