We Took ‘How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days’ And Replaced The Cast With All Latino Actors- Here’s The Result

Good news for all you rom-com lovers out there! Recently, news broke that the early-2000s seminal masterpiece “How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days” is getting a modern reboot–this time, for our TV screens. According to E! News, the remake-project is currently in development for the streaming platform Quibi and will be written by “Mindy Show” alum Guy Branum. According to the press release, the show will focus on “a glib young online writer and an oversexed advertising executive, both looking to prove they’re capable of being in a monogamous relationship”. But, obstacles come up when they “discover that staying in a relationship is harder than it looks”.

Needless to say, this is a dream-come-true for fans of the original Hudson-McConaughey charmer. It will also be a great addition to a TV landscape that’s sorely lacking in romantic-comedy projects. But more than anything, we think the reboot of “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” is the perfect opportunity to improve upon the original cast choices. Although everyone in 2003 hit was talented, it was a group of actors sorely lacking in diversity. On that note, we’re excited to see if the newer version adds a little color to their cast. FIERCE by Mitu has made a dream all-Latinx cast of “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days”. 

Take a look below!

Diane Guerrero as Andi

The character of Andi is an ambitious young woman who, although she is beautiful, is smart above all else. She wants to be taken seriously in her career, but no one will give her a chance. Diane Guerrero has the comedy chops and quiet intelligence to play this role perfectly. Not to mention, Guerrero should have some free time on her schedule now that “Orange is the New Black” has come to an end.

Oscar Isaacs as Ben

Oscar Isaac has the range and talent to play any character he wants. We’d love to see him in this reboot because we’ve never seen him in a romantic comedy before. We can just imagine him playing the aforementioned “oversexed advertising executive” that charms Andi into falling in love with him against her will.

Richard Cabral as Tony

Yes, Richard Cabral has risen to prominence playing thugs and gangsters, but we know he has so much more potential in him. We’d love to see him play against-type as Ben’s nerdy and skeptical friend, Tony.

Melissa Villaseñor as Michelle

We would love to see SNL star Melissa Villaseñor take a stab at playing Andi’s best friend and co-worker, the neurotic and man-obsessed Michelle. Can’t you just imagine Villaseñor pretending to be a cooky couple’s counselor like in the original film? There’s nothing we’d love more. 

Christina Milian as Jeannie

As Andi’s stable and sexy friend, Jeannie doesn’t have much to do other than be a foil to Michelle’s craziness. And we can’t imagine an actress more badass and independent than Cubana Queen Christina Milian. 

Oscar Nuñez as Thayer

We all know Oscar Nunez as the practical and professional Oscar on “The Office”. But if you’ve ever seen “The Proposal”, then you know that Nunez can also bring the crazy. That’s why he’d be perfect for filling the role of Thayer, originally played by the brilliant comedic actor Thomas Lennon.

Gina Torres as Lana Jong

Anyone who’s seen Gina Torres on “Suits” knows that Torres can play “powerful boss lady” like she’s born for the role. We can totally see her as Andi’s boss Lana–the intimidating but supportive editor of Composure magazine. Honestly, we’ll take any excuse to get more Gina Torres in our lives. 

Renee Victor as Glenda

Famous for voicing the feisty Abuelita in Coco, this actress has played matriarchal roles in everything from “Paranormal Activity” to “Vida”. Everything about her screams “pure of heart” just like Jack’s mom in the original version.  Just look at the face! This woman would never be able to lie her way through a game of Bull****.

Edward James Olmos as Jack

You may know Olmos primarily for playing Selena Quintanilla’s father, Abraham, in the 1997 Jennifer Lopez-vehicle, “Selena”. Olmos has the kindness and gravity to play Ben’s feisty and lovable dad, Jack.

Rita Moreno as Mrs. DeLauer

Has there ever been another role more perfectly suited for the talents of Rita Moreno? We’re 100% positive that Moreno would deliver the line “Ladies, frost yourselves” possibly better than the original actress. Here’s to hoping…

A ‘Father Of The Bride’ Sequel Is Officially Coming— And It’s Going To Be Super Cuban-American!

A ‘Father Of The Bride’ Sequel Is Officially Coming— And It’s Going To Be Super Cuban-American!

Break out the tres leches! It’s gonna be a wedding of “epic proportions!” Cuban-style!

That’s right, the beloved 1991 film Father of the Bride is getting a remake. This time, the film will star 64-year-old actor Andy Garcia, the patriarch of a Cuban American family, struggling to see his daughter walk down the aisle.

Garcia will star in and executive produce the upcoming Warner Bros. remake of Father of the Bride, a story that will follow a Cuban American family.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brad Pitt‘s production company, Plan B will produce the remake with Gaz Alazraki, director of Club de Cuervos, set to helm.

“I’m very excited to join The Father of the Bride, a beloved film that has brought so much joy to so many over the years and to represent my Cuban culture and heritage in this story,” Garcia explained in a statement published by THR. “I commend Warner Brothers for their foresight and celebrate this opportunity they have created.” 

Garcia’s remake is the latest in the franchise, which first came out in 1950 and starred actor Spencer Tracey and Elizabeth Taylor.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

The first film inspired a sequel, also starring Tracey and Taylor, called Father’s Little Dividend. The film was remade forty-years later with Steve Martin and Diane Keaton in the 1991 version. Garcia’s upcoming take will focus on a similar storyline. According to THR, “the latest remake will center on the father of a soon-to-be bride coming to terms with daughters’ nuptials. But the latest take will be told through the relationships in a big, sprawling Cuban-American family.”

The 1991 cast of the film reunited in September for a Netflix special.

The feature filmed memorable moments from the Nancy Meyers film and its 1995 sequel Father of the Bride II and showed “the Banks family’s” home in 2020. The reunion was produced to honor the World Central Kitchen amid the pandemic.
