They say sometimes life imitates art and, in the case of William Levy, taking on the role of a “ladies’ man” may very well prove that point. As we’ve all heard,Levy has become quite the heartbreaker these days and now he’s under consideration to play a troubled “gigolo” in a Mexican version of the play, Sweet Bird Of Youth.
The character of Chance Wayne was first made famous by Paul Newman back in the 1960’s. But now, it looks like Latin producer Omar Suarez wants Williamto flex his drama chops for the role. Suarez had previously worked on Aracely Arámbula’s play Perfume de Gardenias and feels that a stage production withLevy would have massive appeal.
“Con William acordamos hacer una obra que le permitiera un crecimiento como actor,” Omar told Univision. “Ya hicimos una primera comedia, Un Amante A La Medida, donde el público ni siquiera lo dejaba hablar, esta vez queremos que sea algo más serio, donde él tenga un lucimiento, así como todos los que estén integrados.”
Suarez says that he has already spoken with William about the play. Though nothing has been solidified as of yet, there is a definite possibility that Mexico City residents could see some live Levy when the curtain goes up this October.
