Now that he’s given us a taste of his softer, RomCom side with No Strings Attached, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges is signing on for another schmaltzy role. He’s adding his name to the staggeringly ginormous list of Hollywood names attached to New Years Eve, which is Garry Marshall’s upcoming romantic comedy behemoth that aims to answer all our burning questions from his first lets-throw-a-handful-o-famous-people-in-a-movie movie, Valentine’s Day. Wait, I’m pretty sure I didn’t have any questions about Valentine’s Day. Especially since it looks like New Years will be in an entirely new city and be about an entirely different group of people, other than Jessica Biel and Ashton Kutcher, including Jon Bon Jovi, Abigail Breslin, Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Seth Meyers, Lea Michele, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Til Schweiger, Sienna Miller, Hilary Swank and Sofia Vergara. Oh and Ice Cube and Ryan Seacrest and Josh Duhamel and do I need to keep naming names because I’m pretty sure there are more and I’m really tired already.
But hey, at least we can look forward to something good, right? LUDA IN THE HOUSE. Come on, who doesn’t like this guy? No one, and if you don’t, you probably need to reexamine your priorities. He’ll play a New York City cop working in Times Square during the New Years ball drop, which sounds like the absolute worst job, alongside Hilary Swank’s festivities director. Sorry, Luda.
