Chris "Ludacris" Bridges has joined the cast of the New Line's romantic comedy "New Year's Eve," TheWrap has learned. 

The actor and rapper will play a supporting role in the Garry Marshall directed ensemble film. Much like "Valentine's Day," "New Year's Eve" is centered on a group of couples and would-be lovers over the course of the holiday.

He joins a growing list of stars such as Jessica Biel, Abigail Breslin, Ice Cube, Robert De Niro, Josh Duhamel, Zac Efron, Ashton Kutcher, Seth Meyers, Lea Michele, Sarah Jessica Parker and Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank and Sofia Vergara.
