The American Idol host headed to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania to formally open The Voice, a technology suite which enables young patients to DJ songs and conduct interviews.
Seacrest was accompanied on his charitable trip by his Burlesque actress girlfriend Hough - and she became tearful with emotion as she met dozens of sick kids who will benefit from the project.
In a post on Twitter.com, she writes, "Having a very inspirational and emotional morning meeting kids at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia."
"She's talking about you all the time. I think I've gotta hook you guys up... I think she's stalking you." Tom Cruise pokes fun at Rock of Ages co-star Julianne Hough during a radio interview with her boyfriend, DJ and American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.
Adam Shankman, the director of the movie musical, has launched an appeal on Facebook.com to find extras and now Cruise is helping to swell the masses by confirming he'll be on stage at the Sun Life Stadium scenes in Miami, Florida on Monday (18Jul11).
The movie superstar, who plays rocker Stacee Jaxx in the film, says, "It's a concert scene and it's (me singing) Dead or Alive and it goes into where Stacee's performing in a stadium and so there'll be a big show.
"Then, there's another song, (Journey's) Don't Stop Believin', where the whole cast will be on there... and we'll perform that."
In his Facebook.com alert, Shankman insists all those planning to attend Monday's concert filming must be at least 16, and he urges them to dress "Like the 80s! Big hair, make-up, and ALL BLACK rockin' clothes."
Meanwhile, Cruise admits he's having a blast.
Speaking to radio DJ Ryan Seacrest, who is dating Cruise's co-star Julianne Hough, on Wednesday (13Jul11), the actor said, "It's fun. I've never done a musical and I'm having a blast... I love this character.
"I saw Adam (Shankman) a few years ago after I saw Hairspray and I said, 'OK, man, where's our musical?' and he came to me with this."
Rock of Ages is gathering some pretty awesome moss. And by moss, I mean cast members. I guess that doesn’t make any sense—and I know the saying is “rolling stone,” which sort of muddles the metaphor as it’s also a completely separate music reference…forget all that. Will Forte is joining Rock of Ages.
The movie is based on musical, which is derived from a song, which was named for a 13th Century Jewish liturgical poem—or a Wyoming mountain range. In any event, it has an awesome cast: Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti and Bryan Cranston to name a few of its heaviest hitters.
Saturday Night Live's Forte will play a role at which I predict excellence: a TV news anchor, presumably reporting on the music scene that is the center of the film’s events. Traditionally in film, anchormen are thick-headed buffoons—there’s one movie in particular that stars an anchorman like that, but I can’t recall the name. In any event, Forte’s biggest comic strength is playing the vacant, blissfully ignorant type. Excitement is brewing.
The story will follow Julianne Hough’s small-town girl through a tumultuous ride in 1980s Hollywood. A love triangle will present itself between Hough, the established star played by Tom Cruise, and a rookie music artist, played by rookie actor Diego Gonzalez Boneta.
The cast also includes Mary J. Blige, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Malin Akerman and Russell Brand. In other words, this Rock will be one stone that you can throw through a glass house…I really don’t understand metaphors.

With a Footloose remake, you’re not expecting a cerebral examination of the human condition. You’re expecting, and hoping for, exactly what this trailer shows: amplified emotions, outlandish behavior, and regrettably catchy music. Diehard fans will probably take issue with Kenny Wormald's lack of Baconity…but I say, give the boy a hand. Sorry for that, it had to be done.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I was seriously disappointed when Zac Efron backed out of the upcoming remake of the classic Footloose. After seeing this picture, however, I might be starting to warm up to the idea of his replacement, Kenny Wormald. Julianne Hough doesn't look like she minds cozying up to her absolutely delicious co-star and who can blame her? Remakes are always hard, but if this photo is a taste of what's to come then I'm sure it's going to give the 1984 version a run for its money. I expect this movie to provide a whole new range of moves and a whole new range of hotness (sorry Kevin Bacon I think you've met your match). They just didn't dance like that back then!
If this picture leaves you wanting more then check out the first trailer which is set to be released next Tuesday, June 21st. Seriously, this can't come soon enough!
The country singer and former Dancing with the Stars champion flew into a panic when her Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Lexi, became sick on Saturday (04Jun11).
Hough took her puppy to a veterinarian's clinic and admits she was overwhelmed with worry as she waited for her dog to be treated.
In a post on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "First time I legitimately bawled my eyes out in years. Being a helpless parent is the worst thing in the world!"
The blonde beauty later reassured fans the canine is on the mend, adding: "All is well in Lexi land! Thanks for all of your sweet messages! It means the world!"
Meanwhile, her boyfriend, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, offered Hough his support by accompanying her on the unexpected vet trip.
He 'Tweeted', "Made a trip to the animal emergency room over the weekend... All is ok. Thx (thanks). Upset stomach!"
Straight from the colorful set of Warner Bros. adaptation of the Broadway hit Rock of Ages comes this fruity set photo featuring Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand in full costume and character! I can't tell you who or what the polar-opposite performers are playing/doing in the image, but as they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words."
Adam Shankman is directing the big-screen rendition of the musical, which will star Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Paul Giamatti, Diego Bonet, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bryan Cranston, Malin Akerman and more. It hits theaters on June 1, 2012.
The Desperate Housewives star has confessed the couple failed to hit it off but became friends as a result of their night out.
During an appearance on America's The Wendy Williams Show on Friday (13May11), she said, "We got set up on a blind date by a friend. It was years a go. It's fine. He's fine. He's great. I think I wore jeans and like a t-shirt and a sweater, it was kind of a rainy day. He's a smart guy, an interesting guy or whatever."
But when pressed by Williams about whether the two shared a goodnight kiss, Hatcher added: "It was, like, a peck."
And she was horrified to learn that photographers had snapped the couple on their date: "I didn't know that there were photographers shooting (with those) d**n zoom lenses."
Seacrest is currently dating actress/singer Julianne Hough.
Update: Apparently, Alec Baldwin IS super into the idea of just slapping a bunch of old rock jams from the '80s together, weaving in some type of storyline, putting it to film and calling a musical. According to Deadline, the actor will be in the movie. Turns out, he had some type of medical condition that might conflict with the shooting and asked to be removed from the film "if at all possible," but apparently, it's not possible. Shooting for the film starts on May 23.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor dropped out of the adaptation of the Broadway musical Rock of Ages, set to be directed by Adam Shankman. The announcement, honestly, comes as a bit of a surprise considering that Baldwin spoke on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon just last week about his excitement for the project, but, shit happens, we guess. Anyway, those concerned that his departure will make the adaptation less star-studded, fear not; there's still like a zillion big names set to sing and dance their way through Poison covers, including Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman, Bryan Cranston, Mary J. Blige, Julianne Hough, and Diego Boneta.

With her perfect Barbie-doll looks and dazzling dance-floor moves, Hough became America's spinning sweetheart when she joined — and ultimately won — Dancing With the Stars. An aspiring entertainer from an early age, 10-year-old Hough left her Utah home to study at London's Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts; her efforts paid off when she became the first U.S.-born dancer to be crowned International Latin Youth Champion and Junior Blackpool World Latin Champion. Although she returned to Utah to finish high school, after graduation she headed to Los Angeles and quickly booked a gig as a sexy dancer on the short-lived game show Show Me the Money. From there she joined the DWTS tour as a company dancer. In a 42nd Street-like twist, when lead dancer Kym Johnson injured herself, Hough replaced her, twirling across the country with Season 1 DWTS contestant Joey MacIntyre. Her impressive work led to her addition to DWTS proper. She was paired with Olympic speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno in Season 4 and race-car driver Helio Castraneves in Season 5, winning back-to-back mirror-ball trophies. Proving that she's more than just a hoofer, Hough released her first country-music album in May 2008, with plans to open for country star Brad Paisley during his summer tour.
