8 Latinos Who Need an Animated Film Right Now!

Pitbull stars as the silly frog named Bufo in the new 20th Century Fox animated movie EPIC, which opens in theaters today. In honor of Mr. 305's new role, here are other Latinos we think should star in an animated movie right now!

1. Animated Movie: Rosie Perez

Rosie Perez

The Brooklyn native’s classic Boricua accent and Brooklyn attitude has always set her apart from the rest. If Disney ever made a Latina princess fairy tale, we think Perez should definitely be hired for her vocal swag!

2. Animated Movie: Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato

The 20-year-old pop star is already known for her vocal ability! Her raspy voice would be perfect for an animated musical. Perhaps even an animated version of Camp Rock!

3. Animated Movie: Wilmer Valderrama

Wilmer Valderrama

The funny guy is awesome at making impressions and taking on different personalities. We think his alter ego Eduardo Fresco needs an animated film, like, now! Seriously.

4. Animated Movie: Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera

The Ecuadorian singer already has experience filming for an animated movie. Aguilera made a small cameo as herself in the 2004 movie, Shark Tale. We hope a bigger role is in the near future!

5. Animated Movie: Shakira


The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer has a voice like no other. She would add personality and humor to any animated flick. Besides, we are sure she would win more ‘cool mom’ points with her son, Milan.

6. Animated Movie: Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek

The Mexican actress was already nominated for a Teen Choice award for her character Kitty Softpaws in Puss In Boots. We think her feline character needs an on-screen comeback – fast!

7. Animated Movie: Danny Pino

Danny Pino

The Law & Order: SVU actor is known for taking gritty roles, but who says he can’t play an animated prince? He certainly has the good looks for it!

8. Animated Movie: Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin

The Broadway star would be an awesome pick for an animated musical. We can picture him playing a cartoon version of Ché from his role in Evita.
