Just when we thought New Year’s Eve was done with its growing cast, we were proven wrong. The movie has re-added Oscar winner Halle Berry according to THR. The actress previously signed on for the film back in December but was replaced by Katherine Heigl shortly after. But the trade is reporting that she’s back and playing a completely different character. What in the world is going on over there?
Berry was originally set to play a caterer who runs into a former flame. Do you know who that former flame is? Jon Bon Jovi that’s who! Unfortunately, after her exit from the film Heigl slipped in and took over the lucky part. Now we’re hearing that Berry will appear as a new character, a nurse. The part will be smaller than her original but she’ll be in the movie none the less.
New Year’s Eve centers on the intertwining stories of a group of New Yorkers as they navigate their way through bittersweet drama and romance over the course of New Year’s Eve. The cast currently includes Robert De Niro, Hilary Swank, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Biel, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Ashton Kutcher Sarah Jessica Parker, Zac Efron, and many, many more!
What do you think of Berry’s return to the film?
