7 Latina Actresses We’d Rather See Play Carmen Sandiego Than Jennifer Lopez

The good news: Walden Media (The Chronicles of Narnia) wants to make video-game-turned-childhood-TV-show Where In the World Is Carmen Sandiego? into a movie! The bad news: Jennifer Lopez might star in it. Here’s the logline:

When the ACME agency’s greatest detective Carmen Sandiego becomes the world’s greatest thief, it’s up to her former partner to follow her clues and track her down. Their cat-and-mouse game leads the partner to confront a greater mystery: Is Carmen really a thief or a hero?

Although Walden says she’s currently only attached to produce, we’re scared that J.Lo will get her hands on the project. So to combat that rumor, we’ve come up with seven Latina actresses who we think would be much better fits for Carmen—whether it’s attitude, spryness for chase scenes, or the ability to wear a red trenchcoat.

For the most part, I’ve tried to find photos of these ladies in red or yellow, to get you really envisioning them as Carmen.
