Trevor Donovan To Star As Ken In Upcoming Barbie Film
Trevor Donovan may be the Ken in the “Barbie” movie. On the 50th aniversary of the Barbie doll, Mattel revealed its plans for a live action “Barbie” movie with Universal Pictures.
According to many sites, “”90210″ star, Trevor Donovan is in talks to portray Ken, Barbie’s longtime boyfriend. It is not official casting news but the film is beginning to pick up slack.
I think Trevor Donovan does look like the Ken doll. He looks lean and muscular like the Ken doll also. I think the “Barbie” movie should be a romantic comedy. It should tell the story of how Barbie and Ken met. Perhaps it could have a little drama in the movie. Maybe Barbie gets amnesia and doesn’t remember Ken or any of her friends. Then Barbie meets Ken some months later. They are attracted to each other and the romance is rekindled. Ken takes Barbie to all the familiar places and Barbie remembers some of the silly and embarrassing moments they had together. Ken and Barbie’s romance has grown stronger and they are talking of marriage when the movie ends. I can’t think of any actress who would be cast as Barbie. I don’t think many of today’s young actresses look like Barbie.
