Former 'Idol' Constantine Maroulis joining Broadway's 'Rock of Ages'

"Ages" producers Matt Weaver and Carl Levin said they immediately were drawn to Maroulis, who earned musical notoriety during Season 4 of "Idol," and felt he was a perfect fit for the 1980s rock musical, the New York Daily News reported Sunday.

"When we met Constantine, we instantly liked him and knew he would be perfect for 'Rock of Ages,'" the producing pair said. "He has a real rock sensibility."

Maroulis's involvement with the musical, which will feature songs from 80s bands such as Whitesnake and Bon Jovi, has yet to be officially confirmed.

If Maroulis does join the musical, which is to begin its Broadway run in March, he would represent the most recent "Idol" star to make the transition from TV to the stage. The Daily News noted "Idol" Season 3 champion Fantasia Barrino performed in a Broadway rendition of "The Color Purple" and Season 5 champion Taylor Hicks helped boost ticket sales for a recently concluded production of "Grease" on Broadway.
