The Bold and the Beautiful's casting director just nabbed a huge feather for his or her cap, as one of the soap's newcomers is currently the talk of Hollywood! Gina Rodriguez, who plays fiesty Beverly on the world's most watched scripted serial, just signed a talent holding deal with ABC, according to Deadline.
Rodriguez has been generating a lot of buzz out in Hollyweird, courtesy of her impressive turn in Sundance stand out Filly Brown. Thanks to said buzz, Rodriguez could find herself attached to one of ABC's upcoming projects like Marc Cherry's Devious Maids!
Filly Brown, from helmers Youssef Delara and Michael Olmos, is the story of a SoCal hip-hop artist (Rodriguez), who must decide whether or not to take a Devil's bargain from an unscrupulous producer offering stardom. Sounds like a Latina 8 Mile. Congrats to Rodriguez! Now let's hope B&B puts her on the front burner to capitalize on all the heat she's radiating, while they have her! Watch a teaser of Filly Brown below.
