Celebrity Sketch by Jim McDermott
Source reveal that famous face Paul Giamatti has just inked a deal to star in the new movie-adaptation of the Broadway musical, Rock of Ages. Paul is slated to play the manager of Stacee Jaxx's rock band.

The cast of the Adam Shankman-directed Rock of Ages continues to look better and better. Paul Giamatti is signing on to play the manager of the rock band headed by Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise) in New Line's adaptation of the Broadway stage musical. Giamatti just opened in Fox Searchlight's Win Win, and won a Golden Globe for Barney's Version. He'll star in the HBO film playing Ben Bernanke in HBO's Too Big To Fail. He just wrapped the George Clooney-directed The Ides of March. Giamatti's not a singing virgin. He starred in the Bruce Paltrow-directed karaoke film Duets with Huey Lewis and Gwyneth Paltrow. He's repped by UTA and Kipperman Management.

Aside from Cruise and Giamatti, Rock of Ages has Mary J. Blige, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand and Julianne Hough. Shankman is courting Amy Adams for a key role.
