For the “Valentine’s Day” fans out there who’ve been following all the latest and greatest news surrounding director Garry Marshall’s follow-up/spin-off, “New Year’s Eve,” we know only a few things for sure: a) Similar to “Valentine’s Day,” the plot involves a bunch of intersecting characters and storylines b) The cast is ginormous c) No really, there are too many people in this movie.
Anyway! When MTV News caught up with Abigail Breslin recently during the press day for her upcoming animated spaghetti western/adventure film “Rango,” in which she supplies her voice over talents opposite stars Johnny Depp and Isla Fischer, I asked her for an update on her role in “New Year’s Eve.”
Unfortunately Abigail couldn’t tell us much, aside from the fact that she starts filming her role sometime in March, but I had some fun with her anyway.
“What can you tell us about your character?” I asked.
“I can’t say,” Abigail said with a smile. “But I guess you’ll just have to wait and see,” she teased.
Since she wasn’t going to give up any goods, I changed tactics and put her on the spot by challenging her to name everyone in the film’s crazy-huge cast.
“Oh my goodness. It’s huge, right? It’s, um, Sofia Vergara, Katherine Heigl, Robert DeNiro, Zac Efron, Lea Michele, there are so many people,” she said. “My mind… there are so many people! Sarah Jessica Parker, there are so many people… I think it’s like a hundred million or something like that. Somewhere around there.”
Yep, something like that. In addition to the folks Abigail mentioned, here’s the full list thus far: Ashton Kutcher, Carla Gugino, Michelle Pfeiffer, Alyssa Milano, Josh Duhamel, Ryan Seacrest, Hilary Swank, Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Seth Meyers, Jon Bon Jovi, Ice Cube, Julie Andrews, Sienna Miller and Frankie Muniz.
