Dennis Quaid has joined the fecund cast of "What to Expect When You're Expecting," because, well, why not spin a classic pregnancy manual into a romantic comedy packed with stars? With new cast members being announced all the time, this movie is getting more crowded than the Duggar family's dinner table.
In "What to Expect," his character Ramsey is in a December-May marriage with Skyler, played by model/actress Brooklyn Decker. Luckily, Quaid has over 30 years on Decker in real life, so that part should be easy. Ramsey and Skyler are expecting twins (not those twins, folks -- eyes up here, thanks), and if that wasn't enough stress and opportunity for ca-razy hijinks, Ramsey's grown son Colin is also about to become a dad for the first time.
Although Lionsgate describes Ramsey as "hilariously competitive," he sounds like kind of a jerky dad, albeit one with the opportunity to redeem himself, darn it. Will there be a heart-to-heart between Ramsey and Colin? Long-buried family issues coming to light? Some sexy step-mom tension? Who can say?! Colin hasn't been cast yet, so it's hard to guess what the dynamic will be, but hopefully Ramsey will get some sense knocked into him. And there will be jokes about babies peeing and/or spitting up on his expensive suits.
Quaid was most recently seen in the heart-tugging teen film "Soul Surfer," about surfer Bethany Hamilton and her struggle after being mangled by a shark. Next up, you can catch him in "Footloose" as Reverend Shaw Moore, a hater of dancing and all things fun. Check out the trailer here.
