There has been widespread speculation that Jessica Sanchez – the second place contestant on last season’s American Idol – has been tapped for a starring role in an upcoming big-screen adaptation of the popular play “Miss Saigon.” The beautiful and talented 16 year old singing sensation has downplayed these rumors, insisting that she has too much on her plate with her touring and recording responsibilities to focus on acting, but the internet remains abuzz with speculation.
Because there is another Filipino singing and acting talent who has been rumored to be associated with the movie version of the popular “Madame Butterfly” adaptation – Charice. Indeed, the popular singer and actress has been linked with the role of the beautiful Vietnamese whore, Kim.
In addition to being Jessica Sanchez’s competition for her first movie role, Charice is already one step ahead of Jessica when it comes to her first television role – more specifically a stint on Glee. This is because Charice has already had a recurring role on the Fox hit show. She has also recorded a very popular album and participated in tour a world tour to promote it. Because of this, it is no surprise that people are drawing comparisons between the two young starlets.
So, who do Jessica Sanchez’s fans think is going to win the part? Well, among the Bluejays, that is a no-brainer. Jessica Sanchez herself, on the other hand, is staying completely mum on the subject. So, who do you think is going to get the role – and do you think it would be a good place for Jessica to begin her acting career?
