“How exciting to think that Diego Boneta’s first film role, in this summer’s musical adventure Rock of Ages, will see him share the screen with the likes of Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Alec Baldwin! We can’t wait to see him in the film and to see what the future holds for this talented young man. CinemaCon is thrilled to honor him as its Rising Star of 2012.”
