Tom Cruise tweeted a preview of himself as Stacee Jaxx, the fictional heavy metal star in “Rock of Ages“, the Broadway musical hit in its big-screen adaptation, as reported by several US entertainment news sites, June 17, 2011.

Reports claim that Tom Cruise, 48, was almost not immediately recognized in the promo picture as he appeared topless, having very long hair, with numerous tattoos and wearing very tight jeans.

Apparently, Cruise’s character in the musical has to sing Jon Bon Jovi‘s classic “Wanted Dead or Alive“.

As to whether the actor can deliver a tune or not, director Adam Shankman said, “He can sing!” and that “It’s a miracle!”

Rock of Ages” is a rock musical which features mostly classic rock hits from the 1980’s well-known rock bands such as Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Poison and Asia among others, reports reveal.

Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema got the film rights for the musical, which just recently begun production and is expected to be released in theaters come June 1, 2012.
