‘New Year’s Eve’ Gets Ludacris

'New Year's Eve' Gets Ludacris

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.

I think The Playlist has shown great commitment by continuing to write about this movie.

It’s hilarious. I bet they’ll keep adding cast members till the last day before principle photography ends.


Why do you continue to give an account of this film? It has been going for the aforesaid Criterion, is not?


I should have probably added sources:

Cary Elwes:

John Stamos: He deleted his own tweet announcing it but Ryan Seacrest is helping out:!/RyanSeacrest/status/47497922530656256

John Lithgow: these might be not “good enough” for you… only from people on the set:!/DarkSkinDior/status/42984006836420608 (there is a second one but that’s now in a private Twitter)


I’ll give you a few more names, so you can continue to be miserable:

John Lithgow
John Stamos
Cary Elwes

All joined the cast as well.
