Bryan Cranston

(Lester Cohen/

Director Adam Shankman has added one more name to the all-star cast of his big-screen adaptation of the ’80s-rock-and-roll Broadway musical Rock of Ages. Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston will play the mayor of Los Angeles, whose wife (to be played by Catherine Zeta-Jones) is an ultraconservative anti-rock-music crusader. Cranston joins a cast that also includes Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Mary J. Blige, Russell Brand, and Paul Giamatti. Rock of Ages begins shooting this month in Miami.
