Kevin Kline Joins Freeman, Douglas & DeNiro in 'Last Vegas' Comedy
A fine cast of aged actors has already stepped into the comedy Last Vegas, a new comedy from writer Dan Fogelman (Crazy Stupid Love) and director Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure, Cool Runnings). Michael Douglas is playing an old ladies man who calls three childhood friends together for a wild bachelor party in Vegas before he settles down with a girl half his age. Morgan Freeman and Robert De Niro already joined the cast as two of the friends, and now Deadline reports Kevin Kline (Life as a House, In & Out) has taken the role of the final friend for the film that sounds like it could be The Hangover for grandparents. Read on!
Christopher Walken was long rumored to take that final role, but it sounds like that didn't work out. Turteltaub has ever really taken on a comedy like this, but since he's working with a script from Dan Fogelman, I'm very interested to see how this shakes up familiar comedy elements as he did that so well in the romantic comedy genre with Crazy Stupid Love. Plus, this assembly of talent in a comedy isn't bad either. Kline is my favorite part of the cast now as In & Out has always stuck with me as a great comedy from the 90's, not to mention great work in films like A Fish Called Wanda and the unofficial sequel Fierce Creatures.
