If ensemble casts are your thing, you should definitely be checking for the upcoming flick “Baggage Claim.” A few months back we told you how Paula Patton snagged the lead role, which was originally thought to be going to Taraji P. Henson, in the film about a 35-year-old flight attendant who is the oldest person in her family to not be married and who is insanely jealous of her little sister’s recent engagement. Well now we know who will be playing the part of the little sister, none other than Miss “New New” herself, Lauren London.
In an interview with The Life Files, Lauren talked about her new role in the Fox film which is slated to hit theaters next spring, saying:
“Paula is great, we were destined to play sisters… Its our dynamic. Between shooting Baggage Claim and prepping for The Game, everything is moving at the speed of life… Its a good time, I’m excited to share these new characters with the world.”
Lauren and Paula are just the tip of the celebrity iceberg when it comes to the names attached to this flick. Taye Diggs, Derek Luke, Adam Brody, Jill Scott, and Octavia Spencer are all said to be a part of the cast along with aspiring actress Lala Anthony who will play Paula’s energetic coworker and accomplice. Lauren’s old boo-thang Trey Songz has a part in the film too as a “hot shot record producer with plenty of ‘swag.’” Interesting…
“Baggage Claim” is based on a novel of the same name by David E. Talbert who is also writing, directing, and producing this film adaptation. Let’s hope the acting comes through. What do you think about this cast so far?
