Look out for actress, Marlene Forte, in Marlon Wayans’ “A Haunted House” and more in 2013!

With various acting roles in upcoming film and TV projects all coming out in this new year, Marlene Forte, Cuban-born actress is one busy momma. Balancing life as a wife, mother, and actress, is second nature to Forte at this point in her acting career and she does it gracefully.

On the big screen, Forte started the year with a co-starring role in Marlon Wayans’ directorial debut called “A Haunted House”, which hit theaters nationwide on January 11. 2013. If you have not seen it yet, check it out! According to Rotten Tomatoes, 87% of people liked the film.

“A Haunted House” is a spoof on horror films like “Paranormal Activity” and “The Devil Inside.” In this movie, Forte enters the realm of comedy as Marlon’s personal housekeeper “Rosa” who is not what she appears to be. “This is Carmen on crack”, says Forte of her outrageously funny character.

As if Forte wasn’t busy enough, the second season of “Dallas” begins January 28, 2013 and she also has a recurring role on ABC Family’s Hit TV drama series “The Secret Life of The American Teenager” which will air its final episodes in February 2013. Last but not least, she will soon be seen on the big screen again in Tyler Perry’ s feature film “Single Moms Club” opposite Terry Crew, Amy Smart, Eddie Cibrian and Tyler Perry. The trailer has not yet been released for the “Single Moms Club”, but it sounds interesting based on the information that Being Latino gathered. Basically, a group of mothers are brought together by an incident at their children’s school. We will all just have to wonder what role Forte plays in this film?

About Ces’Ari Garcia Delmuro

Born and raised in southern California to Mexican-American parents, Ces'Ari pronounced Chez-ah-ree, has always had a passion for learning a little bit of everything while maintaining close cultural ties. She graduated the University of California, Irvine with campus wide and political science honors attached to her B.A. in Political Science. The honors titles came from completing a senior thesis on the shared infrastructure between the United States and Mexico. Rather than jumping straight into law school after graduation, she decided to first give back to a community that had similar demographics to her own and thus, joined Teach For America (TFA) and relocated to Arizona during the height of SB 1070 tensions. While in TFA, Ces'Ari earned her M. Ed. in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Science from Arizona State University and completed research on HB 2281, the ethnic studies ban in Arizona. The injustices that the Latino community faces propels Ces'Ari toward furthering her education as a means of gaining a louder voice to speak on behalf of the Latino community. She is currently studying for the LSAT and plans on attending law school in fall 2013. You can find more of Ces'Ari's writing on her personal blog.
