According to a posting on Sebastian Bach's Facebook page, the former SKID ROW singer and EXTREME guitarist Nuno Bettencourt spent "all night" earlier this week on the Miami set of the upcoming film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical "Rock Of Ages". Bach and Bettencourt will apparently appear in a scene with "some nuns, bikers, and rockers" that was shot "on an amazing set that looks exactly like Hollywood," according to Sebastian.

"Rock Of Ages", which showcases popular rock songs from the '70s and '80s, features Tom Cruise in the role of Stacee Jaxx, an aging musician whose glory days are long past. Among the tunes Cruise will perform are SCORPIONS' "Rock You Like A Hurricane", BON JOVI's "Wanted Dead Or Alive" and STYX's "Renegade".

"[Tom's] character has elements of Axl Rose, Keith Richards and Bret Michaels," director Adam Shankman tells USA Today. "We did a huge amount of research on what people were going through in this period." He also relied on personal experience. "I knew a lot of these people because my dad was a music business manager."

It was previously reported that Cruise was preparing for his role by training with Axl Rose's vocal coach. "He's been studying with seriously Axl Rose's voice teacher like five hours a day," Shankman told The Wrap in April. "The prognosis is more than excellent."

The movie is a love story told through the music of PAT BENATAR, BON JOVI, JOURNEY, POISON, TWISTED SISTER and other artists from the 1980s.
