Bon Jovi and Seth Meyers, the two most lauded actors of our generation, are set to join the cast of Garry Marshall‘s New Year’s Eve, which picks up where Valentine’s Day didn’t leave off. Apparently, Marshall’s approach to movie making has been “hit ‘em with stars until the audience don’t know what’s what.” This all started with Love Actually, and has seemed to become the cinematic equivalent of Twitter.
According Hollywood Reporter, Meyers and, uh, Jovi join a cast that also includes Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Abigail Breslin, Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank and Sofia Vergara. If Valentine’s Day is any indication, look for that cast to double in size before production. Bon Jovi will be playing a rock star and Meyers will be playing a broke dad that tries to get his wife to have the first baby of the year so that they can get a $25,000 prize. Heady, heady stuff.
New Year’s Eve is an ensemble film that follows around approximately a billion characters as they do the kinda stuff that people do on New Year’s Eve, like induce their wife’s labor for money.
