A marvelous idea for a film:
Getting older in Hollywood and being Hispanic there are no longer the limitations they once were, say Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek.
After all, they wonder, when have Hispanic actors ever landed such big feline roles as the leads in the animated adventure “Puss in Boots”?
“When I started out, Hispanic roles were very limited,” Hayek said Wednesday at the Cannes Film Festival, where she and Banderas joined DreamWorks Animation overseers to show off footage of “Puss in Boots,” a “Shrek” spinoff coming this November. “Roles were very limited. There were one or two kinds of characters you used to do. Now we get to play the cats! It’s OK to be a Hispanic, even if you are a cat.”The trailer (sorry, can't embed it yet) is pretty snappy. It's very well done.
