“I actually went for the audition and it was looking really good, but scheduling just wasn’t working out,” Joe explained to JJ. Had he have gotten the role, he would have been starring opposite his ex, Taylor Swift — a feat that caused us here at Hollywood Crush to wonder just how many other random connections there were between the 15 + cast members. So we came up with our own version of a “Valentine’s Day” family tree, only now we’re sadly going to have to cross the well-coiffed singer out of it.
Joe continued explaining that the scheduling conflict was mostly due to the fact that the JoBros were on tour during shooting of the movie, and because the cast was filled with so many major A-Listers (Julie Roberts, Anne Hathway and Jamie Foxx, anyone?), the production calendar was pretty much unchangeable. “We figured it out on our part but it was just difficult because they’re working with so many superstars, that scheduling is really hard to adjust than a normal film like if it was just me and a few other people.”
Still, Joe doesn’t want his fans to get “paranoid” that he won’t be making a cameo in the Garry Marshall-directed film just yet. He hasn’t ruled out the possibility that it could still happen. “I think we’re going to try and do something for that,” he added, “but it all depends on schedules.”
Would you still like to see Joe in “Valentine’s Day”? Or are you hoping he spends his time focusing on his music?
