Director Adam Shankman tweeted the first picture of Catherine Zeta-Jones as her 'Rock of Ages' conservative, music-hating character this morning and damn if she doesn't look a lot like Tea Partier Michele Bachmann, pearls, pastel suit and all.

"Look at my Catherine Zeta-Jones! It's so good to have you back in a musical! So brilliant!" Shankman said about snagging the 'Chicago' Oscar winner for the role.

Her character is the wife of the mayor, played by 'Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, a part written just for the film.

"The character was invented to streamline the stories," Shankman told The Hollywood Reporter in April. "She is this hardcore, moral majority, arch-conservative who wants to shut down rock 'n' roll in the great city of Los Angeles."

She'll be singing Pat Benatar's 'Hit Me With Your Best Shot' and Twisted Sister's 'We're Not Gonna Take It.'

That's funny, because Twisted Sister was targeted by the Tipper Gore-led Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC, the real-life model for 'Ages' OSERS group) and the song was mentioned in the Senate hearings on the subject. Dee Snider himself testified before the Senate in 1985, where he was addressed as "Mr. Sister."
