Dave Chappelle Joins The Cast Of A Star Is Born
If the movie’s name sounds familiar to you, that’s because it has been the title of not one, not two, but three movies with the same basic story made twenty years apart. The first film came out in 1937 and starred Janet Gaynor and Frederic March as stars in the early years of film. The second film came out in 1954 and featured Judy Garland and James Mason, while the third was released in 1976 and starred Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.
Chappelle will join the latest version of the film as Noodles, a friend of the main character played by Bradley Cooper. Also appearing in the film is Stefani Germanotta, who is better known by her stage name Lady Gaga.

In addition to playing Ally, Germanotta, who earned her Oscar nod for the song “Til It Happens to You” from The Hunting Ground, has composed and will perform original songs in the film. The main cast also includes Andrew Dice Clay and Sam Elliott.
A Star is Born is being produced by Bill Gerber, Jon Peters, Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips and Lynette Howell Taylor; with Basil Iwanyk and Ravi Mehta serving as executive producers.
