Russell Brand has joined the cast of movie musical Rock Of Ages following months of speculation.
The British funnyman was trying to schedule the role of Lonny around his summer plans with wife Katy Perry and now it appears he’s sorted out the logistics.

He’ll join Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Alec Baldwin and Mary J. Blige among the supporting cast of the film.

Little-known Mexican actor Diego Boneta was announced as the star of the project last week.

The film will be adapted from the hit Broadway musical of the same name.
