[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ludacris [/lastfm]will star in a New Year’s Eve based movie with some major stars backing him up. Luda has proven himself to be a pretty good actor in the past, but can he carry a full movie with major stars behind him?

According to Hiphopwired.com:

Rapper turned thespian, Ludacris will be stepping in from of the camera once again, having recently accepted a role on the star-studded film, New Year’s Eve.

The Atlanta spitter will be starring alongside actors Robert DeNiro, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele, Jessica Biel, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jon Bon Jovi[/lastfm], Michelle Pfeiffer and others.

Directed by Gary Marshall (The Flamingo Kid, Runaway Bride, The Princess Diaries) New Year’s Eve is a comedy, which chronicles the overlapping stories of the movie’s characters as they prepare for New Year’s festivities.

Luda has been cast to play a police officer in the New Line Cinema film that is scheduled to hit theaters on December 9

So is Luda following in the footsteps of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ice-T[/lastfm]? He certainly has the appeal to be a lil more softer on the edges than Ice, which is a good thing in today’s marketing strategy.
