Garry Marshall’s New Years Eve just added two more pretty people to its actor pile-up thanks to Carla Gugino, Halle Berry, and a judge. Berry, who had to drop out of shooting the ensemble romantic comedy due to a custody dispute over her daughter, found that a ruling in her favor is allowing her to travel with her daughter to New York to re-join the already enormous cast that includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Zac Efron, Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michelle and Robert De Niro. Berry will play a nurse, in a role that is significantly smaller than the role that was originally intended for her.
Gugino, who can next be seen in Zack Snyder directed Sucker Punch and the Jim Carrey starring adaptation of Mr. Popper’s Penguins, will be playing mainly opposite Jessica Biel and SNL’s Seth Myers. (Hollywood Reporter)
