    OMG! OMG! I just love Morena. I enjoyed watching her in Michael Rosenbaum’s new comedy “Back in the Day”. She has great comedic skills, and I’m equally excited to see her in another comedy film. While I think she’s a great “TV actress”, I believe that with her talent she is more deserving of big blockbuster movie roles. On another note, I’m really disappointed they chose an actress other than Morena to play the role of Wonder Woman. Let’s face it, the original TV Wonder Woman was played by a Hispanic actress. Oh well. Look forward to seeing her in any and all future roles.
