'Children's Hospital' & 'Human Giant' Star Rob Huebel Also Joins



Oh no, it's happening again. This writer fell down the weirdly compelling rabbit hole of casting on "New Year's Eve" and that same feeling of obsession is now creeping for "What To Expect When You're Expecting." Somehow random cast ensembles are my porn. Anyway, taking narrative cues from "Love Actually" and "Valentine's Day," the film actually tracks four different couples on their various journeys to parenthood and it is assembling a huge ensemble to tell the tale.

The latest addition is Chace Crawford -- best known as Nate on "Gossip Girl" -- and he'll be joining Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick, Chris Rock, Matthew Morrison, Rodrigo Santoro and Elizabeth Banks in the film. The casting seems to be a clever ploy to get girls under the age of 30 interested in the movie, if only to see Crawford's chiseled good looks. So just how wacky is this movie going to get? Crawford is going to play Kendrick's ex-boyfriend with the two reuniting following a turf war between their respective food trucks. How relatable! Will there be a romantic food fight featuring tacos and artisanal ice cream?! Only if Cupid says so!

Kirk Jones (”Nanny McPhee,” “Waking Ned Devine”) is directing -- and oh yeah, Rob Huebel of "Children's Hospital" fame has also come aboard -- and the film will give birth (can't believe we haven't used that pun yet) on May 11, 2012. [Variety]
