Choreographer, Adam Shankman, called Ryan this morning to talk about his upcoming movie, “Rock of Ages.”

Formerly a broadway musical, “Rock of Ages” is about two rock-n-roll teenagers who fall in love as they live their life immersed in the notorious ‘rock scene.’ The musical includes hits from rock legends such as Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Poison, and many more!

So what does Shankman have to do with “Rock of Ages?” Shankman is taking this rock-inspired musical and bringing it to the big screen! In fact, the movie “Rock of Ages” is capturing some of Hollywood’s biggest names including Tom Cruz, Julianne Hough, Alec Baldwin, and even Mary J. Blige!

But there’s one name missing in this star-studded cast, and that name can be yours! The spot for Drew Boley, the lead male voice in the movie, is open and Shankman is offering an opening casting to the public.

Shankman is looking for “that new person that’s totally unencumbered by any other jobs and any other press baggage and somebody that’s incredibly fresh.” He goes on to say “I need a young, great looking guy with a huge voice that has a sense of humor, sensitivity, and courage.”

Are you the next “Rock of Ages” star? If you think you so and are a male between the ages of 18 – 25 with a real rock-n-roll singing voice, this can be your big break!

Auditions will be held Saturday, March 26th at Central Casting in Los Angeles. Call 818.725.7425 or visit for all the details on how to attend the open casting.
