Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin has rejoined the cast of movie musical "Rock of Ages."
The actor urged producers to find a replacement to portray Los Angeles nightclub boss Dennis Dupree in the film, because a mystery illness left him unsure as to whether he could commit fully to the project.
But producers persuaded Baldwin not to leave the cast - and the star joined the likes of Tom Cruise and Paul Giamatti for a cast reading in Miami, Florida on Thursday.
On Friday, director Adam Shankman confirmed Baldwin was officially back onboard in a tweet to fans.
