Jake T. Austin may have gotten to act with stars like Sarah Jessica Parker and Abigail Breslin in Garry Marshall's new holiday flick, New Year's Eve, but there was someone else he really wanted to work with… Jon Bon Jovi!
The legendary rocker is a big part of the ensemble cast, and Jake wishes he had gotten the chance to have a scene with him. "I wish I had gotten to film with Bon Jovi," Jake told OK! during an appearance at Planet Hollywood in NYC, "just because I know him as musician, and I know him as being such a huge member of a band. I’m just curious to see how he would act, you know?"
Another person who would have gotten a kick out of that is Jake's mom, who is a big fan! "I think my mom would say Bon Jovi does anything good," he revealed to OK!. "I’m pretty sure he does good in the film. If there was anyone I wish I could have had a scene with, it was Bon Jovi."
Hopefully she got a chance to meet him at the Tribeca Film Institute Annual Benefit Gala screening of New Year's Eve last night in NYC!
You can see Jake and Jon Bon Jovi when the film opens on Friday, Dec. 9.
