As the list of actors continues to pile up on Garry Marshall’s New Year’s Eve, one has to wonder if everyone involved will have little more than brief cameos. But who would do such a thing as place the likes of Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Jessica Biel together in a film and then give them little more than 10 to 15 minutes of screen time? Probably the same guy who directed Valentine’s Day.
THR reports the already very large ensemble — which includes Hilary Swank, Sofia Vergara, Lea Mitchele, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Swift and Abigail Breslin — will have to make room for three more. Namely Sarah Jessica Parker, recent Golden Globe nominee Halle Berry and Zac Efron. The cast has yet to commit to the film, but negotiations are underway with everyone involved. (“So Mr. De Niro, who would you like to play?” “I’ll take the 12-minute role for $10 million.” “Done.”) New Year’s Eve is set for release December 9, 2011.
