Rosario Dawson Is Joining The Cast Of ‘Jane The Virgin’ And YESSSSS

“Jane the Virgin” is in the middle of Season 4 and it’s about to get a new cast member.

But first, a recap! On the last episode of “Jane the Virgin,”Jane went off on first book tour and Rafael and Rogelio play Mister Mom by staying home with little Mateo.

The show left us with that kiss cliffhanger between Jane and Rafael. So what’s in store next?

It’s been announced that Rosario Dawson is joining the cast.

Rosario Dawson vai tirar umas férias do universo de heróis na Marvel-Netflix para dar uma voltinha no hotel Marbella. A atriz foi escalada para a quarta temporada de Jane The Virgin. O anúncio foi feito durante o painel da CW no TCA 2018, evento destinado para a imprensa norte-americana. Por enquanto, não há maiores informações sobre a personagem de Rosario, mas ela vai aparecer em vários episódios da comédia estrelada por Gina Rodriguez, ainda este ano. Assim, a moça se junta a uma grande lista de vários convidados especiais, como Tyler Posey, Kate del Castillo, Diego Boneta, Gloria Estefan, Ke$ha, Juanes, Bruno Mars e Britney Spears. Nos Estados Unidos, Jane The Virgin retorna com episódios inéditos em 26 de janeiro. Aqui, a série faz parte da programação do canal Lifetime. Via: AdoroCinema.com

While there are very little details about her storyline, it’s being reported that Dawson will be featured in a multi-episode story arch, which means her part will be very juicy.

“Jane the Virgin” season 4 continues on Jan. 26

Jane is definitely in a love bind. With the book’s success, baby Mateo, and now Rafael, who knows how she’ll handle it all. But this leaves us wondering what kind of role Dawson will have. Will she play an encouraging character for Jane or a villain of sorts? We’re hoping for the latter, to be honest.

The timing of this revelation is very interesting. Did Gina Rodriguez and Dawson meet during their Hollywood Latina hang?

Fiercely Latina. #LatinaPower ????

Neither actress has confirmed the news of their collaboration. But it seems like Rodriguez and Dawson have been close ever since this picture was take two months ago.

Rodriguez also reposted this video that Dawson put on Instagram regarding the #TimesUp Movement at the Golden Globes.

#TimesUp #WhyWeWearBlack

#TIMESUP on pretending change is not needed,” Rodriguez tweeted. “We stand in solidarity because we are grateful to our sisters and brothers, both survivors and allies who have spoken out and forced the convo of sexual harassment, sexual assault and gender bias into the spotlight.”

Dawson will also reprise her role as Claire Temple on “The Defenders” on Netflix.

This girl is definitely going to have a very busy 2018. Get it!

It seems like Rosario Dawson is an enthusiastic marijuana user, according to her boyfriend, Senator Cory Booker.

As we have reported, legalized recreational drugs made huge strides this election year, with 15 states passing laws to legalize marijuana and Oregon voting to decriminalize all drugs. One of the states that voted to legalize marijuana was Senator Cory Booker’s home state of New Jersey.

While Booker made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss both his reelection and the state of the 2020 presidential race, Kimmel wanted to talk about something much more important: weed.

Kimmel introduced Booker as a senator from a state that legalized marijuana “just in the nick of time” and Booker was quick to laugh and play along. “Rosario was a little concerned that pot might have done better than me in the last election,” he said in response to Kimmel’s ribbing.

Kimmel then asked the question that all of us wanted to know: will Booker be indulging in some of the green flower to celebrate marijuana’s big win? At that point, Booker turned the camera to a surprise guest: a grinning Rosario Dawson.

Booker jokingly said: “I don’t know what she was more excited to do: vote for me as a new New Jersey resident, or vote for marijuana.”

Rosario Dawson took the joke in stride, saying that she was happy that she “got to vote for my man and I got to vote for marijuana” in the state of New Jersey.

While Booker’s joke was funny, it appears that it has no basis in reality–Dawson seems to be overjoyed that her boo won back his seat. In fact, she was so happy that she posted a touching tribute to Booker on her Instagram page.

In fact, Dawson was so happy about Booker’s re-election that she posted a touching tribute to her boyfriend on Instagram explaining how “proud” and “grateful” she was of him.

“So proud of and grateful for you my love,” she wrote in her caption under an adorable black-and-white photo of the two of them. “I got to vote for you here in New Jersey and am so glad that you overwhelmingly and rightfully won your seat again. To know your leadership will continue to guide us with love, brilliance, patience, grace and effectiveness is the kind of representation and hope we need.”

Booker, as well, has also previously been effusive in his praise for Dawson. Last October, he was quoted as calling his girlfriend “an extraordinary person who has changed my life” and adding that he was “the happiest I’ve ever been in my personal life.”

Who knows? Maybe they’ll celebrate his win and the new law together.

Latinas Shared The Movies And Shows That Made Them Feel Seen

Nickelodeon

It’s no secret that over the past few decades, people of color worked to fight for equal representation on screens both big and small. While, of course, there have been great POC and LGTBQ relationships on television there’s really been a spike in the spectrum of representation since our early years watching television and learning about relationships.

Recently, we asked Latinas on Instagram what shows and movies featured their favorite most diverse couples.

And the answers threw us for a time loop!

Check them out below!


“Maria and Luis on Sesame Street.”- melissa_phillips71


“Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner is The Bodyguard, they reminded me of my parents and they loved to play the soundtrack.” –millenialmarta


“The leads in Someone Great, Jane and Michael the virgin and the lesbian relationship Gentrified. It’s been 30 years and I finally found characters I can relate to.” –allyss_abyss_

“Most definitely, “Brooklyn 99”: two female Hispanics as regulars and a white person playing a Hispanic (Andy Samberg’s character’s last name is Peralta, which is a Spanish surname).” – seadra2011

“Holt and Kevin(and Rosa Diaz) have changed the way people have perceived gay couples and gay people. Nine Nine!” –chaoticbiguy


“The first on-screen presence that made me feel seen/represented period was @justinamachado ‘s character on One Day At A Time. A Latina veteran struggling with her mental health while trying to juggle school, work, love, and family? And as a main character? Whew….“-vieja.metiche

“Taína! It was on Disney if I remember correctly?? Then @americaferrera in sisterhood of the traveling pants as Carmen. 😭❤️ her life was like mine. Growing up in suburbs but never really having a place culturally.. but my girlfriends still had my back no matter our background.” –chessy__a
