Jennifer Lopez - Jennifer Lopez Reportedly Going Head-to-head With Thalia For Broadway Role

Jennifer Lopez and Mexican singer Thalia are reportedly battling it out to play Gloria Estefan in an upcoming Broadway musical.

Last month (Feb13) the Rhythm Is Gonna Get You hitmaker and her husband, Emilio Estefan, announced plans to bring their life story to the stage in Do That Conga, and now the hunt is on to cast their theatre counterparts.

According to Spanish news site TvNotas.com, Thalia, who is married to Mariah Carey's ex-husband Tommy Mottola, has emerged as the frontrunner to portray Gloria, however bosses are also reportedly considering Lopez for the role.

Meanwhile, Cuban model and actor William Levy, who played Lopez's love interest in her I'm Into You music video, is leading the charge to play Emilio Estefan onstage.

Multiple reports suggest singer Chayanne and actor-turned-Tv personality Carlos Ponce are also in the running.
