Fans of American Idol singer/Tony-nominated Broadway actor Constantin​e Maroulis have a reason to rejoice. Maroulis wasn’t able to revisit his role of ‘Drew Boley’ from the Broadway musical in the feature film version of Rock of Ages, however director Adam Shankman did find a part for him in the star-studded big screen production. Maroulis will play a 1980’s record executive in Rock of Ages, so says Shankman.

Maroulis joins a cast which includes Tom Cruise as Stacee Jaxx, Julianne Hough as Sherrie Christian, Diego Boneta as Drew Boley, and Malin Akerman as Constance Sack. New Line’s set a June 1, 2012 release date for the rock musical which takes place in the 1980s and featuring music from Styx, REO Speedwagon, Journey, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison and Whitesnake.
