Now They’re Just Hiring Anybody: Alyssa Milano Joins 'New Year's Eve'

Update: E! reports that Julie Andrews has now also joined the film, classing up the proceedings considerably. Also, Marc Malkin looks frighteningly like Steve Zahn.

Want to be in Garry Marshall‘s “New Year’s Eve“? It appears all you have to do is just be near the catering table or even on the same block as where the movie is shooting and you have a pretty good chance of getting a role.

Variety reports that famed thespian Alyssa Milano has joined the (mostly) staggeringly third-rate cast for Marshall’s second swing at the holiday themed rom-com following the egregious “Valentine’s Day.” In case you missed it, the film will revolve around a variety of romantic interludes on the end of year holiday and will star Katherine Heigl, Jessica Biel, Abigail Breslin, Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, Sienna Miller, Sofia Vergara, Seth Meyers, Til Schweiger, Josh Duhamel, Ice Cube and Ryan Seacrest.

No word yet on who the “Charmed” actress will play, but does it even matter at this point? “New Year’s Eve” hits on December 9th.

I really hope that Julie Andrews will join this movie. Coz that would be so great! I adore her. And in this movie she would be a really perfect fit. No matter what place she gets for it. It would be great :D

Robert De Niro lowering his standard? Noooo!? Wheh did you get that? Fockers was a masterpiece, right?


Bryan, come on, we all need a good laugh ! It is absolutely funny to see many of these stars ( and so-called stars) desperately trying to get a major box-office hit on their resume.

But, it is sad to see Michelle Pfeiffer & Robert De Niro lowering their standards.


Please stop reporting on this movie. Is there anyone who really cares about this one?

Edward Davis

That helps, thanks!


If you want to spare yourself another article for “New Year’s Eve” you could update this one with Julie Andrews, who obviously also signed up. (

It would also add some class to this one.
