Diego Boneta is set to star alongside Julianne Hough, Tom Cruise, and Alec Baldwin in the movie adaptation of Rock of Ages.
NYMag was the first to report the news that the singer/actor scored the coveted role. He will play "Drew," who works as a busboy in the Hollywood bar/club called The Bourbon Room. He falls instantly for a girl, Sherrie (Hough), who just arrived from Kansas hoping to make it big in acting. After being hired as a waitress in the club, Sherrie urges Drew to go after his dreams.
Besides getting his start as a singer in Mexico, Diego has guest starred on "90210" and "Pretty Little Liars" and starred in Mean Girls 2.
Congrats Diego! Don't forget to check out our interviews with him here.
