Russell Brand could soon be flexing his vocal chords.

The funnyman - who portrayed bad boy rocker Aldous Snow in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him To The Greek - is eyeing up the role of 1980s club manager Lonnie in Rock Of Ages, Adam Shankman's big-screen adaptation of the stage musical, Deadline reported.

Alec Baldwin is said to be considering the part of owner Dennis, so if the reports are true, the duo would get to sing a rousing version of the REO Speedwagon hit Can't Fight This Feeling.

Tom Cruise is tipped to play decadent rock star Stacee Jax, which would require him to belt out Bon Jovi's Wanted Dead Or Alive.

Filming on Rock Of Ages is scheduled for May.
