As another weekend ends and the week begins (boo!), here are a whole slew of little casting bites from the past few days for you to peruse through:

The Valentine's Day sequel New Year's Eve is still on the way, reportedly with a whole new cast. However, some say that Taylor Swift and Hector Elizondo might be the lone castmembers to return. If this is true, Swift's character would be at NYU, and I can only hope that the metropolitan city folk would she the inanity right out of her. [E!Online]

After litigation stopped the production of Eloise in Paris cold, word hits that everything is settled and star Uma Thurman will continue with the project. However, it might not be as the nanny. As of now, her involvement is yet to be determined. [Variety]

Meanwhile, ex-hubbie Ethan Hawke has found a new gig. He'll play a violinist who has an affair to get more solos in A Late Quartet. The film will focus on a quartet who loses one of their own after 25 years, when a member has to retire because of Parkinson's disease. [Variety]
