Roselyn Wants to Play Lupe

In Lupe Velez, Roselyn Sanchez on January 16, 2008 at 9:19 am

If Roselyn Sanchez has her way, she will play Mexican-born screen legend Lupe Velez, who after a turburlent life killed herself in 1944. Roselyn has option a biography of the actress and wants to make it her baby project, telling writer Josh Getlin:

“Velez was a talented and free-spirited person, very sexual, and it was incredible what she could do in Hollywood with such a thick accent, especially as talking films began . If I had a magic wand, I would do for her what Halle Berry did for Dorothy Dandridge, in her movie for HBO.”

Roselyn went on:

“Hispanics have become the ‘it’ demographic these days, but Hollywood hasn’t really catered to our demographic. I want to show people that we already had a presence in the ’20s, ’30s and ’40s, and that we didn’t just come out of nowhere. This is important history.”

Hope it becomes a reality. If HBO won’t make it, take your stuff to Showtime girl. Showtime tells you no? There’s Oxygen.

  1. Can definitely see the resemblance…although Roselyn’s neck is more giraffey. Nice going hissip.

  2. Dreams crome true Roselyn. Please don’t get inoolved in this project unless you’re ready. iT could make or break your career, so get the acting coach. work on a Mexican accent and you should be allright.
