J. Lo Is Chasing Cocaine! Wants In On Mark Wahlberg's New Movie

Marky Mark continues to be an uber busy guy. When he isn't in a movie, he is making one. When he isn't making one, he's in one. Sometimes, he's in a movie that he is making, while also producing a hit TV show and raising a bunch of kids.

Yeah, he's busy … so perhaps this news will ease his mind a bit.

One of the pet projects that has really piqued Mark's attention is Cocaine Cowboys, a feature film based on the 2006 documentary directed by Billy Corben. It's been on his radar for awhile, and on "Sway in the Morning" Sirius radio show this morning, he announced that plans are finally coming together to make it happen.

But do you know what takes a long time? Casting! Ugh! Finding people to play all those parts - EXHAUSTING! Who has time for all that?! Lucky for Mark, one part could be filled pretty quickly if he's down with the idea. Turns out, Jennifer Lopez is also really interested in the movie and she's been "chasing" Mark for awhile to play a pivital role - infamous "godmother" Griselda Blanco. Mark told Sway:

"It's one of those characters that will go down in history. Jennifer Lopez is chasing that [role] like crazy. It's the role — if I could play Griselda, I would. That's Academy Award [bait] right there."

Um, why can't you? What, is that not that kind of film? Will Eddie Murphy also not be in the film playing the rest of the crime family characters? No? Damn!

Look, we love J.Lo, and right now, she is hot as hell. Mark should give her a shot. Forget "Maid In Manhattan" Jen and focus on "Enough" Jennifer. She was pretty damn kick ass. She could handle this role!

    That would be so awesome! All JLo needs is the right roles to shine! She was amazing In Selena, U-turn, Out sight, An unfinished life, Bordertown, El Cantante and with the right direction/ script it could easily be oscar material!

    Meh. Sounds like a potentially great movie, and he should get a lesser known actress who will do the part justice. J Lo would just try to make it about her, and can't really act worth a crap anyway. Hopefully some air headed chick flick will be available and keep her from ruining this movie.

    Congrats to Billy Corbin for getting the pub because his documentries are great. Cocaine Cowboys, The U, and Square Grouper. As for J Lo, I don't know about this part for her.

    J.Lo and Oscar award winner or nominate will NEVER be in the same sentence. She is an awful actress. AWFUL

    jennifer lopez would kill this role and not in a good way…i've seen the documentary its really good…all jennifer knows what to do is make pretty faces and thats it…..the "godmother" was a ruthless killer and jennifer cant pull that off….and plus she does not resemble that lady at all…..

    As always Mario doesn't report the Whole Story. Mark also said Wahlberg that whoever lands the Blanco role will have to forget about being pretty. Getting into character will require a transformation à la Charlize Theron's Oscar-winning transformation for "Monster."
    Therefore, TALENT is required for this role (not looks) so Jlo don't hold your breath ;) !! Jlo is better off in Rom Coms.

    Re: pan86beat – LOL you're so silly. Wake up and look at the numbers. She only had One hit single from her recent album and her latest movie Bombed big time! She can land all these magazine covers, but people are really getting tired of seeing her. She's like another Kardashian! She's only famous for being famous!
