LIVIN’ LA VIDA FANTASY: RICKY MARTIN AS MR. ROARKE?
DA PLANE…DA PLANE!
“Welcome to Fantasy Island, everyone, I am your host, Mr. Roarke, and I’m…livin’ LA VIDA LOCA!”
That scene might be fantasy come true for sexy-boy singer RICKY MARTIN, who’s been snagging raves on Broadway for “Evita” and just got approached by producers looking to pull off another “Dallas”-style TV revival – they want to star him in an update of the ’70s/’80s “Fantasy Island” series, playing the role made famous by the late RICARDO MONTALBAN.
“Ricky totally loves the idea,” said an insider.
“He’s talking to execs about shooting the show in Florida, where he has a home and wouldn’t need to uproot his 4-year-old twins.”
