Patrick Schwarzenegger is the latest big name to join the casts of "Grown Ups 2." With Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Kevin James returning, the cast for the 2013 comedy sequel was already shaping up to be something special. When you add in the fact that talented stars like Maya Rudolph, Maria Bello, and Salma Hayek are all reprising their roles, it's going to be hard to find a face that you don't recognize. Arnold's son is set to take on the role of a fraternity brother in the movie, and he's already filming his scenes in New England. "Amazing first day on Grown Ups 2," he tweeted. "So happy to be part of this." Here is a look at some of the other interesting names to join the cast for the sequel.
The "Twilight" star is also in the cast as a frat member, and it seems like he will be one of the antagonists in the movie. The teen idol has been tied to the movie since April and is currently filming his scenes along with Patrick. Interestingly, Patrick was recently seen enjoying the July 4 holiday with Lautner's former flame Taylor Swift. Despite that, the two seem to be all smiles as they filmed their scenes.
Is the former NBA star attempting a comeback on the big screen? Shaq, who has starred in movies such as "Blue Chips" and "Kazaam," figures to have one of the scene-stealing cameos in the comedy. He sports a hilarious wig as he plays a police officer. Images show him performing a variety of tasks, including writing tickets and directing traffic. If the big man is going to revive his acting career, this might be the movie that gets the ball rolling.
After making a name for himself as one of the leads in the hit comedy "Project X," Oliver joined the cast back in March. Though his role has not yet been defined, it stands to reason that he could be involved in the same frat that the other young stars are in. Can he succeed as an actor in a more traditional movie? If he can recapture the magic that worked in "Project X," this might be a big stepping stone for the young star.
