Who Else Will Be in Jennifer Lopez’s and Cardi B’s Stripper Movie?
Jennifer Lopez will be starring in a new movie, Hustlers, as a stripper who teams up with others like her to get their “fair cut” from their rich Wall Street clients. The film accurately portrays the dynamics of the real world but focuses them on the club.
In the real world, men are told they are only worth the thickness of their wallet or the digits in their bank account, while women are told that they are only worth their physical beauty. The film plays on that way of thinking.
Just recently announced was that rapper Cardi B would be returning to her stripper roots for Hustler, making her the second announced actress to star in the movie. For Cardi B, this will be her feature film debut – and fans everywhere are excited to see her in action. But who else will be appearing in Hustler with J-Lo and Cardi B? Here’s what we know so far.
Joining J-Lo and Cardi B in Hustler is Lili Reinhart, who was only recently confirmed. The 22-year-old actress is best known for her role of Betty Cooper in the popular television series Riverdale. She has also appeared in The Good Neighbor, Miss Stevens, and Surviving Jack.
23-year-old Keke Palmer will also be joining the cast of Hustlers as an ex-stripper. The singer, songwriter, and actress is best known for her role in the 2006 film Akeelah and the Bee. She has also appeared in The Longshots and Joyful Noise.
Julia Stiles is a 37-year-old actress who is best known for her roles in the late 1990s movie, 10 Things I Hate About You, and the early 2000’s film, Save the Last Dance. Stiles married her husband, Preston J. Cook, in 2017 and shortly after gave birth to the couple’s son, Strummer Newcomb Cook.
This casting decision came as a bit of a surprise, although some assume that 71-year-old Mercedes Ruehl will be reprising a role other than ex-stripper… however, nobody really knows since the casting list does not include accompanying roles. Ruehl is best known for the 1992 film The Fisher King. She has also appeared in Big, Married to the Mob, and The Warriors.
Constance Wu is best known for her starring role in the film Crazy Rich Asians and also appeared in The Feels. Currently, she portrays character Jessica Huang on the television series Fresh off the Boat.
Lysette has previously on a Maroon 5/Cardi B music video, meaning this is not the first time she’ll be working with the infamous rap lady. As an actress, Trace Lysette is best known for her roles in Transparent, Colors of Ava, and Law and Order: Special Victim’s Unit.
This actress, born 1972 in Miami, Florida, is best known for her roles in Morning Glory, Love and Other Drugs, and Law and Order. As a theater performer, Aspillaga was nominated for the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play.
Mette Towley is a new actress, with Hustlers being among her first major roles. Fans can look forward to some her fresh talents alongside the rest of the star-studded cast.
What about the men?
While most (if not all) of the leading lady roles have been cast and confirmed, the majority of male roles is still up in the air. The only confirmation is Scotty Gelt, who will play an investment banker. Fans should keep an eye out to see who will be cast in the leading male roles.
