Almost two years ago now, I wrote about the announcement that Barbie was going to be made into a movie, after a deal had been struck between Universal Pictures and Mattel. Universal Pictures Chairman Marc Shmuger stated:
“Barbie is the most famous doll in history, a unique cultural icon in the world of brands. So many representations of Barbie frequent pop culture, but never before has she been brought to life in a motion picture. We’re grateful to Mattel for entrusting us with this extraordinary opportunity.”
Now it seems they’re finally getting the ball rolling on casting. In fact, a certain famous hottie (who recently played a gay character on a hit television show) is rumored to be in talks to get the role of “Ken”. After I heard about who it was, I now see so many similarities between Ken and this actor.
None other than the sexy Trevor Donovan. Such a great fit right? There’s no word on who will play Barbie or what the film will even be about at this point – the options are limitless. Rest assured that it will take place somewhere hot so Barbie can drive her pink convertible around.
