Carla Jimenez is a little happy…
The 47-year-old Mexican American actress will star opposite Dean Cain in the family sports comedy Little Angels.
Cain, best known for his starring role in Supergirl, will also direct the film, which he wrote.
Helena Mattsson, Torrance Coombs, Juliet Donenfeld, Alex Jayne Go and Ryan O’Quinn will also star opposite Cain in his directorial debut, which is currently in production in Los Angeles.
Little Angels revolves around Jake Rogers (Cain), a Division I college football coach at the top of his game who uses a female placekicker as a publicity stunt. When the player misses a field goal, the coach makes an offhand comment in the media about female athletes and is immediately suspended by the university. In an effort to get his job back, Rogers must coach a 12-year-old girls soccer team for the remainder of the season.
Jimenez’s previous credits include My Name Is Earl, Raising Hope and Little Britain USA. Her other credits include Nacho Libre, Lady in the Water, and Accepted.
