I love the concept for the upcoming romantic comedy, Yesterday, and it features Ed Sheeran. Ed also seems to have used his influence to cast his partner, Cherry Seaborn.
Some of the film was shot during Ed’s tour. Cherry visits him on the road a lot and ended up getting in a scene.
It’s only a tiny part but Ed and Cherry love it, and she also appears in the end credits. Cherry plays one of the cabin crew in Ed’s private jet, handing out champagne.
Yesterday, directed by Slumdog Millionaire‘s Danny Boyle, is about a struggling singer/songwriter named Jack who gets hit by a bus and and wakes up in a world where The Beatles never existed and nobody remembers them, except him.
Jack then starts passing off the Fab Four’s songs as his own, and soon catches the interest of Ed, who plays a version of himself. With Ed’s help, Jack becomes a superstar, but then risks losing the love of the one girl who always believed in him.
The movie also features SNL’s Kate McKinnon, and The Late Late Show’s James Corden.
Yesterday opens June 28.
