Jon Bon Jovi and Seth Meyers Cast in NEW YEAR’S EVE
Two more cast members have just been added to New Line’s all-star ensemble NEW YEAR’S EVE. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jon Bon Jovi and Seth Meyers have agreed to put on their party hats for the film, being directed by Garry Marshall.
Bon Jovi and Meyers join a cast mates 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, as well as German actor Til Schweiger, who has reportedly also closed a deal to board the production.
New Year’s Eve tells intertwining stories about a group of New Yorkers as they navigate their way through bittersweet drama and romance over the course of New Year’s Eve. Bon Jovi is playing a successful rock star (no surprise there) that once dumped Berry’s character, but now finds himself face to face with her again at a party. Meanwhile, Meyers will play a broke dad who wants his wife (Biel) to have their baby right after the stroke of midnight and win the first baby of the year award of $25,000.
Bon Jovi last appeared in National Lampoon’s Pucked in 2006. Meyers just finished I Don’t Know How She Does It and is head writer of Saturday Night Live.
