It may seem odd for the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul Mary J. Blige to star in a film about Rock & Roll, but the R&B songstress says she couldn’t be more excited to be a part of a film with such an all-star cast.
“Rock of Ages” is based on the Tony-nominated Broadway musical about a small-town girl and a big-city boy who meet while pursuing their dreams of making it as an actress and a rock star in Hollywood. Some of the biggest actors in the industry are lined up to star in the movie musical, including Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand, and Paul Giamatti. Here’s what Mary J. had to say about her role:
“It’s a classic 80′s rock film that I’m so blessed to be in. It features an all-star cast, which I’m still pinching myself about working with. I play a Gentleman’s Club owner, who inspires the women working there and encourage them in their life journeys.”
