New Year's Eve, the great romcom monstrosity that will help us herald in the promised apocalyptic year of 2012 when it hits theaters on December 9 this year, keeps snapping more actors into its massive maw. According to Variety, actress and tabloid fixture Sienna Miller has hopped on board, joining a cast that already includes Jessica Biel, Abigail Breslin, Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Til Schweiger and Hilary Swank.
Miller is a Londoner by birth but has spent a fair amount of time in New York City, where the movie is set, including a run on Broadway in 2009 with After Miss Julie. Variety isn't saying which role Miller will play, but it's a safe bet she'll be yet another one of the lovelorn New Yorkers looking for someone to kiss at midnight on New Year's Eve. It's like they're making a movie about an entire city full of Harrys and Sallys trying to find each other when the clock strikes midnight. Then again, given how much that movie is still well-loved, that's probably not the worst idea I've heard. The movie is set to start shooting in New York shortly, so I'll let you know if I walk past any climactic kisses on my streets in the next few months.
