Pint-size movie star Abigail Breslin’s name has been added to the list of actors in talks to join the cast of New Year’s Eve, the follow-up to ensemble rom-com Valentine’s Day, Variety reports. Much like its predecessor and other films like Love Actually and He’s Just Not That Into You, the film will feature intertwining stories that, this time around, focus on romance in New York City on New Year’s Eve.
Being the cute, precocious 14-year-old that Breslin is, I’m envisioning either a classroom romance or a more Sleepless in Seattle route, where she plays a girl on a mission to get her single dad and his crush together in Times Square. Cue inevitable kiss timed to ball drop.
Other names floating around the rumored cast list include Reese Witherspoon, Zac Efron, Justin Bieber and Glee star Lea Michele.
What do you guys think about the casting? Are you excited by the major star power?
