The list of models taking on feature film roles continues to grow (see Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, and Suki Waterhouse). According to E!, the latest stunner to sign on (to a major film franchise, no less) is veteran Victoria’s Secret angel/Brazilian bombshell Alessandra Ambrosio. The model will play the love interest to Will Arnett’s character, Vernon Fenwick, in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Plot details are under wraps at the moment, but Megan Fox is set to return as the female lead, April O’Neil.
Although the supermodel had a brief cameo in 2006’s Casino Royale, TMNT2 marks Ambrosio’s first significant big screen appearance. And don’t expect it to be a one-time thing. Ambrosio also has a comedy in the works, Daddy’s Home, with heavy hitters Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. She’s also rumored to be a possible guest star in the highly anticipated Zoolander 2, along with a slew of other supermodels. Although you’ll have to wait until June of 2016 to see TMNT2, we’re eagerly awaiting Coachella mainstay Ambrosio’s bohemian looks at this year’s festival.
