Latin pop superstar Ricky Martin wants casting directors to give him a chance at great scripts.
Martin has struggled to realize his ambition to become a Hollywood star, even after the critical acclaim he received for his Emmy-nominated role in Ryan Murphy’s 2018 series “The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” .
“I love acting. I am waiting for these scripts, for these great scripts. I can play gay, I can play straight, I can play a serial killer. I can play Latin, but I can also play European. I’m ready. Just give it to me man Give it to me, ”Martin told People magazine, reports aceshowbiz.com.
He added, “I just want to tap into anything that has to do with acting. I love theater too. I want to tell a story. This is what I want. I want to tell (an) important story and I want to be more optimistic about the way people see life in general. “
Martin has also worked on Broadway, with appearances on “Les Miserables” and “Evita,” and he remembered a music manager who said he would be a bigger pop star if he continued to keep his homosexuality a secret.
“That was something that really touched me. And I was like, ‘Do I really care? You don’t play my music in this country because I’m gay? Is that really happening? ‘ We’re talking about four years ago. This manager no longer works for the record company. He was fired. But I felt it. It hit me hard, ”he said.
Martin, who came out as a gay man in 2010, added: “I don’t know if I won’t get any (acting) roles because I’m gay. But if that’s the case, it’s really sad. I will keep working until life is different. “
