The Headline We've Always Wanted To Publish
We'll be honest, some of the other folk at The Playlist don't understand why we keep writing about it, but this writer did one story on the movie and then became bizarrely obsessed and couldn't help but keep following as new actors kept jumping on this thing like a lifeboat fleeing the Titanic. So god help us, "New Year's Eve" has added another cast member.
THR reports that Chris "Ludacris" Bridges has joined the holiday centered rom-com that also stars (big deep breath) Abigail Breslin, Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, Sienna Miller, Sofia Vergara, Til Schweiger, Josh Duhamel, Ice Cube, Ryan Seacrest, Alyssa Milano, Seth Meyers, Jessica Biel, Katherine Heigl, Halle Berry and Carla Gugino. Phew. Ludacris will play an NYC cop who works in Times Square with Swank's character who is putting together the festivities for the city.
What else can we say about this thing except at this rate, everyone's appearance in the film will be limited to about three seconds of screen time. The Garry Marshall-directed film hits on December 9th.
