Do you think the American Idol finalists should make the jump from music to movies? Adam does!

Calling all American Idols! Triple threat producer, director and choreographer Adam Shankman knows potential movie stars when he sees them – and he thinks Crystal Bowersox, Lee DeWyze and Casey James might be perfect fits for his highly-anticipated film version of Broadway musical Rock of Ages!

“There are so many Idol kids who I really love. It’s really interesting, a lot of people got [criticized], but I love Crystal; I love Lee; I love a lot of them, so it was very strange to me,” Adam, 45, told us exclusively at the So You Think You Can Dance viewing party May 27 in Hollywood. “I certainly would love to see any or all of them audition. If they feel like acting, I’d like to see it.”

We’d like to see that, too! Hear that, Tim Urban? Here’s your chance to bring your winning smile and adorable haircut to the big screen, just like Ellen DeGeneres suggested!

Hey Adam! are you the Stuart Larkin of reality tv.

“Look what I can do” or just a simple dumbass.

Stop the blustering and cast the darn thing already. Geez!

They should remember to give him a lap dance like Miley…that may help them win the role. They may be too old for him though.
