Chris Cole (Mark Wahlberg) was born to rock. His long-time girlfriend Emily (Jennifer Aniston) believes he has the talent to go all the way but instead of writing his own music, Chris worships at the altar of Bobby Beers, the fiery frontman for Steel Dragon, the heavy metal rock legends that inspire and consume his life.
Soon his luck is about to change. When fellow band mates boot him out of the group he gets an unexpected phone call that changes his life forever. He has been scouted to replace Bobby Beers the lead singer of Steel Dragon. In an instant, Chris rockets to the dizzying heights of sudden stardom, rising from devotee to icon, from the ultimate rock fan to the ultimate rock god – the wanna-be who got to be. So what happens when an average guy gets everything he wants... and discovers it’s not enough? Rock Star is directed by Stephen Herek and stars Mark Wahlberg, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Flemyng, Timothy Olyphant, Timothy Spall and Dominic West.
