Alyssa Milano is due for a comeback, don’t you think? Yes, we know, it’s not like she really went anywhere since, after all, she was on Charmed for like 45 years, but we never watched Charmed, so our only exposure to her lately is Proactiv commercials and that company she runs where Alyssa makes sports clothes for women. It’s about time she got back into the mainstream, non-CW Network fray. Lucky for us, 2011 is the year that it’s all happening. Milano has just signed on to appear in the Garry Marshall film New Year’s Eve, the distant cousin to last year’s Valentine’s Day mega-ensemble feature. The giant cast also includes Katherine Heigl, who replaced Halle Berry, plus Jessica Biel, Jon Bon Jovi, Abigail Breslin, Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele and Sarah Jessica Parker. In the film, Milano will play a nurse tasked with caring for an elderly patient on New Year’s Eve. We bet she learns a lesson about life and love!
Milano will also appear in Hall Pass, the Owen Wilson/Jason Sudeikis movie slated for release later this year, so she’s definitely feeling the casting love these days. We’re psyched to see Samantha Micelli finally getting the audience she deserves.
