First Look: Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand picture tweeted from 'Rock of Ages'
The on-again-off-again casting of Baldwin in the movie version of the Broadway stage show, finally resolved as "on," has given unto Twitter a first look at Baldwin and costar Russell Brand in character.
And what a couple of characters. There's not a hint of Baldwin's award-winning "30 Rock" persona Jack Donaghy to be found — this Baldwin is windswept hippie with blond hair, 12 o'clock shadow and Navajo denim vest.
The picture was uploaded by "Ages" director Adam Shankman, who said, "First look! World premiere! Russell and Alec making my life heaven on #rockofagesmovie."
Baldwin plays Dennis Dupree, a has-been rock star and owner of a local watering hole. Brand plays narrator Lonny. "Ages" also stars Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Malin Ackerman and Paul Giamatti.
