LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Rock of Ages” doesn’t blast into theaters until this summer, but Tom Cruise is already getting rave reviews from his co-stars.
AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman caught up with Bryan Cranston at Sunday’s Golden Globes, where the actor chimed in on Tom’s Stacee Jaxx character.
“I don’t think there’s any harder working actor in Hollywood than Tom Cruise. He’s a lovely guy and he’s astonishing in this role,” Bryan, who was nominated in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama category for “Breaking Bad,” said.
“I look at that character that he portrays and I don’t see Tom Cruise,” he continued. “He has taken over this guy.”
In the upcoming “Rock of Ages” (opening June 1), Bryan plays the Mayor of Los Angeles, opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones, his onscreen wife who is fighting against the evils of rock music.
“It’s so much fun. We get to sing and dance and be goofy and ‘80s rock anthem music. It was just so much fun,” Bryan, who said he’ll be sporting long sideburns and below-the-collar hair for the role, explained.
Adding, “‘Rock of Ages’ is going to rock the world!”
