Gwynny’s got the singing bug, and she’s got it bad. She wowed us on Glee and is set to return for a little more song and dance in future episodes, she belts twangy tunes in this month’s Country Strong, she cranked out a tune at the CMAs, and now she’s been offered a role in the Rock of Ages movie adaptation. She did give us a little taste of her vocal talents in Duets, but what took her so long to finally put that voice to good use for real?
Tom Cruise is also in talks to take on a role in the film as well, though he hasn’t signed a contract just yet.(I’m strongly resisting the urge to make a joke about the two stars “Cruisin’ Together.”) Hairspray’s Adam Shankman is at the helm of the Broadway-to-screen film, and he’s been around the block a few times when it comes to musicals. Do you hear that Gwyneth? You’d be in good hands. Come on, take the role; do some more singing. Keep riding that Glee-tastic wave!
