Deep down, are you an '80s arena-rock legend who was born a generation too late? Adam Shankman wants to hear from you.
The Hairspray director and So You Think You Can Dance judge, who is adapting the musical Rock of Ages for New Line Cinema, is holding an open casting call in L.A. this Saturday for the role of Drew Boley – the aspiring rocker first played on Broadway by American Idol's Constantine Maroulis.
Producers are looking for "a male actor between 18 and 25 with a real rock 'n' roll singing voice."

Constantine Maroulis has someone new to idolize him – his brand-new baby girl.
The American Idol alum, 35, and Angel Reed welcomed their first child, Malena James, on Thursday at 11:06 p.m. She weighed 6 lbs., 11 oz., and measured 19 inches long.
"Sometimes Christmas comes early and we're so lucky to get the greatest gift a few days early," Maroulis tells PEOPLE. "Angel and I are thrilled to welcome our perfect baby girl into the world today. Mom and baby are healthy and I couldn't be more excited to ring in 2011 this way."

Being a dad? "It's a beautiful thing," Constantine Maroulis tells PEOPLE.
"It's part of life," says the 2005 Idol alum, as he walked the red carpet Sunday at CC Sabathia's 30th birthday party at New York's 40/40 Club with his girlfriend (and mother of his baby-to-be), Angel Reed – whom Maroulis met last year while the two were starring in the Broadway musical Rock of Ages.
In preparation for his paternal duties, the Brooklyn-born singer, 34, says he's "just living every day right now, trying to do good work and provide for family long term – so I'm looking forward to the road ahead, definitely."

American Idol alum Constantine Maroulis has been making his mark on Broadway since appearing on the hit FOX show's fourth season in 2005. He was recently nominated for a Tony for his role in the rock musical Rock of Ages and the actor-musician credits the reality competition for the chance it gave him.
"I was blessed – I was a finalist," he says. "I probably wouldn't be in this chair if I wouldn't have gone on the audition that day."
But, he says, there is something he'd do differently if he were able to appear on Idol again. "They had a hard time getting the support from artists and publishers to clear a lot of the material, so there were a lot of songs I wanted to do that I couldn't do," he says. "Stuff from U2, Aerosmith, anything Led Zeppelin, Bon Jovi. That was the stuff I was really good at. If I could have done the 'Bohemian Rhapsody' kind of thing week after week, it would have been interesting to see how it would have worked out."

It was a match made in American Idol heaven, but it seems that Constantine Maroulis and Kellie Pickler are an item no more. "We were hanging out and talking all the time and I haven't spoken to her in a while, so I'm not really sure what that's all about," Maroulis tells us. "I don't know if it's her being too busy or thinking that she's a big star now or something. I'm not really sure what the whole situation is."

Lately Eva Longoria has been dressed to the nines – literally. She's got boyfriend Tony Parker's San Antonio Spurs jersey number emblazoned everywhere, from the diamond "9" pendant Parker gave her for Christmas to her new, customized T-Mobile Sidekick II with the digit in silver crystals.

He may be a rocker, but Constantine Maroulis felt more like he'd joined a boy band when he arrived in the Philippines for a recent concert tour. "I got off the plane and they were waiting for me in the airport with signs," says the American Idol singer. "A whole fan group is over there. It's unreal. And the shows were a sea of thousands of people. I felt like I was a Backstreet Boy."
