Jennifer Love Hewitt Joins the Indie Ensemble Drama 'Cafe'

May 18, 2009

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt is making her way back to the big screen! The gorgeous 30-year-old actress has been absent from starring roles since Garfield in 2004 and its sequel in 2006. Love Hewitt has joined the cast of the film Cafe, an indie ensemble drama from writer-director Marc Erlbaum (via THR). Also a part of the ensemble cast are Jamie Kennedy, Alexa Vega, Madeline Carroll, Daniel Eric Gold and Hubble Palmer. The film is about a group of Philadelphia residents who frequent the local West Philly Grounds coffee shop where Hewitt's character Claire works. Shooting already started earlier this month in Philadelphia.

This doesn't exactly sound like the greatest project for Jennifer Love Hewitt to return with, but at least it's not a comedy. The reason why I mention that is that this already reminds me of a film called Caffeine, which starred Mena Suvari and was pretty much a terribly boring comedy about a group of people at a London coffee shop. As for Love Hewitt, I do like her (as an actress) and would love to see her in more movies again, even if she does the occasional studio feature. Maybe this will break her back in again, I hope? We'll keep you in the loop on Cafe and let you know if it shows up at any film fests anytime soon. Sound good?
