Michael Peña is the first to admit that he’s one of luckiest Latinos in the U.S. Why? He gets paid big bucks to play everyday guys in movies. We caught up with Peña, who has two movies in theaters this week – Ant-Man and The Vatican Tapes – to find out what makes him tick. Here’s what we learned:

His on-screen roles in Crash, End of Watch and most recently The Vatican Tapes have one thing in common, all are regular people trying to make a difference. “I like playing characters that are as close to a real person as possible. Two of my favorite actors, Jack Lemmon and Dustin Hoffman always played the everyday man. There is something about an everyday man doing something extraordinary that’s just admirable. To overcome the nervousness and be brave, I’m just fascinated by that.”

Working on Ant-Man Wasn’t So Easy…

But Loyal Fans Make It All Worth It

Cardi B’s First Leading Movie Role Will Thrill ‘Sister Act’ And ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Fans

For one of her upcoming projects, fans of Cardi B can expect a throwback to her older days. That’s right, Cardi B is stepping into a familiar role before the screen. The former “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star has proven herself capable of making music bangers and in Hustlers she showed that she can hold her own when it comes to the big screen.

Now, the rapper is playing the lead in Paramount’s upcoming film Assisted Living.

Cardi was recently cast in the “raucous comedy” called Assisted Living.

According to Variety, the upcoming film “is being described as a ‘raucous comedy’ with ‘tremendous heart.’ Fans of Cardi can expect a film that looks quite a bit like Tootsie, Sister Act, and Mrs. Doubtfire.

The upcoming film follows Cardi B as Amber a small-time crook who gets herself into trouble when a heist goes wrong. “On the run from the cops and her former crew, she struggles to find anywhere to hide, reports Variety. “Running out of options, Amber disguises herself as an elderly woman and hides out in the one place no one will look — her estranged grandmother’s nursing home.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time Cardi B has been in a major film.

In 2019 she appeared the blockbuster film Hustlers starring Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo, and Keke Palmer.

And of course, for some time fans were hopeful that Cardi would take on the titular role of a reboot of the ’90s sitcom “The Nanny.”

According to CNN, the reality star-turned-rapper has been in talks to play Fran Drescher’s daughter in a potential reboot of the ‘90s sitcom.

Speaking about a potential reboot in 2018, Fran Drescher told Extra in an interview “[I’m] talking to her representation. It’s really getting me excited. It’s fresh and it could be super fun.” Here’s hoping we get more Cardi B on screen!
