Tom, is that you?! A shirtless (and ripped) Tom Cruise wows on the cover of W Magazine, sporting tattoos, eyeliner and tight, tight leather pants for a photo shoot based on his character in the upcoming movie-musical, Rock of Ages.

In the film, Tom plays rock 'n' roll superstar Stacee Jaxx, and he's completely transformed from family man to heavy metal rocker. Check out that hair… and those abs, please! 

OK! VIDEO: TOM CRUISE SINGS A BON JOVI SONG SHIRTLESS IN THE ROCK OF AGES TRAILER! 

The Oscar-nominated actor admits it took some convincing for him to finally sign on to the movie adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, but he couldn't say no to his beautiful wife Katie Holmes and their adorable daughter Suri

"Kate loves musicals. She sings and dances, and we kind of went through the history of musicals together. And Suri loved Hairspray," Tom explains. "With kids, you watch everything over and over; I watched Hairspray 15 times with Suri." We're not sure if Rock of Ages can be compared to Hairspray, but we'll see how Suri reviews it! 

And even though Tom signed on for the flick, that doesn't necessarily mean he was prepared!

“The man can sing his a**less chaps off,” Adam revealed, describing the actor's performance on American Idol last week.
