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?
