Jon Bon Jovi, the 48-year-old American rocker whose last acting role was appearing in the 2006 movie 'National Lampoon's Pucked', has been cast alongside Robert De Niro in the forthcoming film 'New Year's Eve', reports the Press Association. US Comedian SETH MEYERS and the German actor Til Schweiger have also been added to the cast.

Bon Jovi is set to play a successful rock star who accidently bumps into his ex-girlfriend, played by Halle Berry, at a party. Meyers will play the husband of Jessica Biel's character who is eager for his wife to deliver the first baby of the year so that he can win 25,000 US dollars. The movie is considered to be the follow-up to last year's successful romantic-comedy 'Valentines Day' and will tell the intertwining stories a group of New Yorkers as they prepare to celebrate 'New Year's Eve'.

The film has a star-studded cast that includes Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher and Sofia Vergara. It is scheduled to hit cinemas on 9th December 2011.
