Kinky Gazpacho: The Movie?!



I can neither confirm nor deny that Kinky Gazpacho the movie is in the works. But let's just play with the idea. Who would you cast as the Black American girl searching for her true self and the handsome Spanish man who steals her heart?

I have some ideas but I'd like to hear yours, especially those of you film buffs who might know the perfect up and coming Meltingpot stars.

Peace and Hollywood Dreams!

I hope it gets there ... I would say for the male - the hunk Javier Jardem and for the female, Jill Scott - Ha! That's heat! Maybe too much heat!

While I love Javier and Jill, they should be or pass for college age, no? Kerry Washington would be a good fit.

I think Kinky Gazpacho the movie would make it onto my tops list super quick! If she were just a few years older, I would vote for Keke Palmer (she's adorable) or hmm college age, rihana (but can she act?) I think the black actresses out there now are mostly in their mid thirties. I know good black don't crack, but that's not passing for junior in college.

Oops! Guess I'm way out of the ballpark! Tia Mowry?

Oh my word, I just read your book a couple of months ago and I stumbled onto your blog, I didn't know you had a blog.
Anyway all these people suggested are way too old, they must have forgot that you were in college in Spain.
Maybe Megan Goode, I really love Jurnee Smolett she is a great actress. I second that KeKe Palmer suggestion though, maybe by the time the script is done she will be old enough. For the husband I have no suggestions, but he should be from Europe b/c I can't think of any America actors that can pull it off.
