"I have a philosophy about casting, and I want people to be able to play as close to the movie's truth as possible....I try to be as age-exact as possible," revealed Adam. "[I don't want to feel sad that] Drew's been banging around for too long....I think musicals should be full of joy and hope and all of that."
Added Adam: "Constantine Maroulis is the perfect, quintessential stage Drew, and then I needed to find the movie Drew....I believe that Constantine would have had to act like he was 25 and had never been through anything, and I didn't want to add that layer onto it."
Our discussion of the movie did get me excited, especially when Shankman namechecked Adam Lambert as the caliber of vocalist he was searching for during casting calls. So since he implored fans to be "open" to Diego, I will indeed try to be. I must admit, the new trailer for the movie DOES look awesome. But I'm still a little bummed that Constantine's famous bedroom-eyed stare won't be plastered across a multiplex silver screen any time soon.

So, do you think Constantine should have been considered for the role? Or do you agree that he was just too, well, aged to be in Rock Of Ages?
