The cast is coming together for director Ivan Reitman’s Draft Day. So far Kevin Costner is starring as the fictional general manager for the Cleveland Browns with Jennifer Garner, Chadwick Boseman, Frank Langella and Ellen Burstyn in supporting roles.
Today The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs is also joining the cast. THR doesn’t say who Combs is playing, but they do describe it as an “appearance”, so it may amount to little more than a cameo. Rosanna Arquette, David Ramsey and W. Earl Brown have also joined the cast.
Filming begins this week in New York, with portions of it taking place during the NFL draft at Radio City Music Hall, which begins April 25.
