Kevin Kline Completes 'Last Vegas' Old Guy Quartet

Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, and Morgan Freeman have finally figured out who they're taking with them on their 60s+ Vegas getaway package.

Though you perhaps thought Kevin Kline's career still distinguished and interesting enough to remain elevated above the interchangeable role of "old guy," Kline will prove you wrong by playing old guy in Jon Turteltaub's Last Vegas, a comedy said to be something like The Hangover, but with old guys. Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman, and Christopher Walken had all previously been attached to play one old guy or another, but as that list shows, really all that matters is that the role be given to a recognizable old guy, and Kline fits the bill about as well as anyone (save for the strangely-snubbed Al Pacino). Now that the lineup of olders is set, production will begin this fall, likely with a madcap scene in which De Niro shouts "My back!" Michael Douglas shouts "My Viagra!" and Morgan Freeman knowingly shakes his head, "This is why it's our LAST Vegas."
