Rock Stars Revisited

Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison
Hollywood loves a true story.  We see them all the time.  Some are good, some not so good.  Rock of Ages starring Tom Cruise is coming out soon and if you didn’t know, he is trying to portray rocker Stacee Jaxx.  Elle Magazine features some of the previous films who give credit to rockers or artists of our time. 
Tom Cruise as Stacee Jaxx
Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett
Angela Bassett as Tina Turner
Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash
Garey Busey as Buddy Holly
Jamie Foxx as Ray Charles
Cate Blanchett as Bob Dylan
Gary Oldman as Sid Vicious
Mark Wahlberg as Izzy Cole
So of course, my favorite of the bunch is Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison.  I love The Doors and the film was really interesting.  Which actor did you think portrayed the best rockstar?

  1. I think the actors that portrayed real life rock stars did great. Especially Jamie Foxx, Joaquin Phoenix (and we can’t forget Reese), Val Kilmer, etc. All of the ones you listed except I have no idea who Tom Cruise is playing…but, I still want to see the movie. I think, for me, it is more how the actor portrays themself and makes “me” belief who they are…

  2. Jamie Foxx is outstanding as Ray Charles….&U loved the movie too. Of coure Joaquin Phoenix has my heart as the Man in Black!

    I cannot give a vote to Val Kilmer, even thuogh I am a die-hard DOORS fan…Mr. Kilmer happens to live in my town (Santa Fe, NM) and has a terrible reputation for being a real d!ck. Not to mention, that was *ahem* severasl pounds ago when he played that role…*heehee!

    Kristin Stewart looks great as Joan Jett, but I didn’t catch that movie…was she any good, acting-wise?

    Fantastic post!!!!!

  3. I love this post and I’ve seen all of these movies! Other the “Rock Of Ages”, but I have seen the Broadway show, which it is based on.

  4. Val and Joaquin looked so hot! Now we need to sww how good Andre 3000 will look as Jimmy Hendrix ;). Great post and thanks for sharing!
