Jennifer Lopez would be open to helping her former “In Living Color” boss, Keenen Ivory Wayans, with the upcoming return of the sketch comedy, set to happen on FOX this spring.
“It’s what?” Jennifer said, when AccessHollywood.com asked her if she’d want to be a part of the show, which returns with an updated version of the sketch comedy, in two half-hour specials in Spring 2012.
“Oh my God, I didn’t even know! That’s awesome,” she told Access on Sunday after the Television Critics Association Winter Session panel for “American Idol” of “In Living Color” being revived.
“I haven’t heard from [Keenen], but if he called me and wanted me to do something, that would be awesome,” Jennifer said.
Jennifer said she’s remained grateful to Keenen for giving her such a great start and encouragement in her younger days when she was a Fly Girl.
“I owe Keenan a lot. From the beginning of my career, he always believed in me, he always was constantly putting in my brain, ‘You’re gonna be a star, you’re gonna be a star, do you know that?’ And he was a mentor to me so I wish him the best with that,” she added.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, original creator and executive producer Keenen will host the new episodes.
The specials will feature young talent, musical performances and special guests.
“In Living Color” originally aired between 1990 - 1994 on FOX.
