Jon Bon Jovi joins ‘New Year’s’ cast

Garry Marshall is directing the New Line pic

Jon Bon Jovi’s heading for “New Year’s Eve,” joining the cast of New Line’s ensemble comedy.

The singer’s the latest addition to the pic, to be directed by Garry Marshall with production starting next week. Other cast includes Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Abigail Breslin, Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Til Schweiger, Hilary Swank and Sofia Vergara.

Biel and Kutcher were in Marshall’s “Valentine’s Day,” but the characters from that New Line pic won’t be in “New Year’s Eve” — which will be set in New York and follow intertwining stories of characters trying to navigate their way through romance on New Year’s Eve.

“Valentine’s Day” producers Mike Karz and Wayne Rice are producing “New Yera’s Eve” with screenwriter Katherine Fugate returing. New Line has given “New Year’s Eve” a Dec. 9 release date.

Bon Jovi’s screen credits include “U-571,” “Pay It Forward” and “Cry Wolf.”
