Selena Gomez is a perfect age to play Kim MacAfee in NBC’s upcoming ‘Bye Bye Birdie Live!’ starring Jennifer Lopez as Rosie.
Gomez has proven herself as a bankable television and music star.
Following a childhood in front of the camera on the children’s television series ‘Barney and Friends’, Selena Gomez rose to fame on the Disney Channel series ‘Wizards of Waverly Place.’
She signed her first recording contract with Hollywood Records in 2008. In 2014 she signed a new recording contract with Interscope Records. Her second album, ‘Revival’, was released in 2015 and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.
Executive Producers Neil Meron, and Craig Zadan should be at least interested enough in Gomez to warrant a sit down. However, her touring schedule promoting her albums may prove too much of a distraction to allow her to star opposite JLo in ‘Bye Bye Birdie Live!’ But, it would be a quality casting choice.
