‘Baby on Board’ Rom-Com Taps Six Tired Names

Wow, this one has really brought in the “used to be popular” crowd as Jerry O’Connell, Heather Graham, John Corbett, Katie Finneran, Ian Ziering and Lara Flynn Boyle have all joined the cast of the romantic comedy Baby on Board for director Brian Herzlinger.

The obviously independent flick follows a happily married couple (O’Connell, Graham) whose lives and high-powered careers are thrown into chaos thanks to an unplanned pregnancy. Corbett and Finneran play their best friends, a bitter couple whose misguided advice on parenting and marriage only makes things worse.

Flynn Boyle plays Graham’s overdemanding ad agency boss. Ziering plays a gay obstetrician and Graham’s confidante.

Just imagine if this group of actors had gotten together back in the ’80s or early ’90s, it would have been something to talk about. Instead, it is now a reason to mourn what careers they could have had.

The film is set to begin shooting this month in Chicago for five weeks.
