Carmen Sandiego was popularized in the 1990s in a series of computer games and TV shows. No word on whether Rockapella will perform the show’s classic theme song.

    For some reason I don’t think Jennifer would be a good Carmen Sandiego. I mean this is the TV show I have a very nice memory of and I’m affraid Jen would ruin it for me.

    Sofia Vergara would be a great Carmen!

  • Asha

    Isn’t she a bit old to be Carmen Sandiego?

  • Fric&Frac

    I think sooooo..

    *forever can never be long enoug for me*

  • lexy hates bilson

    More of her lousy acting….

  • Guy

    It’s kinda creepy I was thinking about that game this morning , Carmen Sandiago games were the best! I’m not really sure how great she would be in it because she never played a villain before, it was usually the girl next door type who falls in love with some guy, you know, romantic comedy stuff. I still wish her great success if she chooses to take on this endeavor, have at it J. Lo! Good luck!

  • Camille

    Man those games came before the 90′s. I played them in elementary school in the mid to late 80′s. Along with Oregon Trail. LOL

  • elle

    Sofia Vergara pleeease!!

  • Vicky B.

    I love Carmen Sandiego but I don’t know how I feel about J.LO being cast as the main role. I would consider someone else.

  • The chief

    Carmen Sandiego must be played by Catherine Zeta Jones or someone that looks like her. She´s perfect for the role, always was. Jennifer is not quite appropriate for this role. Jennifer is a very good actress but this is not the role for her.
    It´s not necessary that this role be played by a latin actress.

  • Marta

    really?they can’t find someone with acting skills??

  • DCM

    Carmen Sandiego is not JLo… they need to consider a younger actress.

  • She Stinks!

    Why her? She’s way too old, and untalented to play this part. She can’t act. She’ll turn this beloved character into a trashy low class egomaniac – just like her. JHO Bag’s best roles are when she plays the maid, gets beat up or dies in the first 2 minutes of the movie.

  • camillus

    Agree w/ she stinks: she is untalented, can’t act, can’t sing, her Fiat commercial sucks, I wouldn’t by this car because she’ advertising it. Why does Hollywood put HACK singers, wanna be actors in roles, do they make money when a film sucks and looses money, who’s paying to see these untalentless trashy low class Whores who think their the world’s top DIVA JLo a Diva JLo A Who_e.

  • LeeLee

    Wow Carmen Sandiego….the kids loved that show and so did I. I can only wish that Rockapella would reprise thier spectacular singing . Let’s all hope. Hmmmmm Sophia or Jennifer or who?

  • Kilsy

    These people are wrong talking so negative about Jlo, she has gone far from the movie Selena to mayor Hollywood films, to singing, and designing her own Jlo clothing brand, she is an example for Latina women In this country. Her personal life is something we should respect, she might be another Elisabeth Taylor but that’s her life and she is a beautiful single mom now….
    These haters must be Genifer Garners people!!! She still hates Jlo, after taking Ben away from her!!! That’s right Garner keep popping baby’s to keep your man!!!!

  • mimi

    I love this game. Jennifer would be perfect for the role.

  • mimi

    Yes!!! No more Jennifer Garner pics. Her contract with this website must have ended. LOL!

  • sorella

    JLO is too old for the role, she has to face the fact she is in her 40s now and getting too old for certain role, it happens to all in Hollywood and she can’t stop the clock. She is delusional, she thinks because she has a good body she can compete with younger actresses, but despite that, she is getting one and those days are done.

  • sorella

    she is getting *old” and those days are done.

  • YAY

    Lopez is the perfect Carmen SanDiego casting and it would be perfect for her. We have never seen her in an action film and she has what it takes.

  • Bellisima

    JLO is feisty and athletic enough for the role…Vergara’s English is hard to understand and not action material.

  • Carmen

    JLo looks half Zeta’s age. Zeta is toooo OLLLD and crazy. She got an Oscar for being married to the Douglas Dynasty and timing her preganance to the awards….just like Naatalie Portman.

  • stop smokin

    @Carmen: Yeah Carmen everybody just “got” an Oscar. LOL Please Lopez is old as hell and that’s just the way it is. I’m sorry but I can’t sit through Jen’s nasally sqeally baby voice. Not to mention when she tries to cover over that chico accent of hers. Too painful.

  • Rocky


    Yes. Roslyn Sanchez, Eva Mendez, Sofia Vergara — those ladies would ROCK it!

  • me

    Jlo honey, is perfect for any role…girl is georgeous and she can act her big butt off. Just because people say she cannot act don’t mean it is so….those are the haters. She certainly is better than Jennifer Garner, Jessica Biel, and Beyonce!!!!

  • Q

    No she will not make a good carmen! ZOE SALDANA would be perfect….
