In a captivating turn of events, Trevor Noah has opened up about his intriguing role in Jennifer Lopez's much-anticipated Prime Video musical film, "This Is Me...Now: A Love Story." The former "The Daily Times" host, aged 39, expressed his initial disbelief upon receiving a call from the illustrious musician herself.

"That was a random call where your phone rings, and it's Jennifer Lopez, and you're like, ‘This must be a prank,'" he shared with People Magazine. The film, a sequel to Lopez's influential 2002 album "This Is Me… Then," is particularly noteworthy as it draws inspiration from her renewed romance with Hollywood star Ben Affleck.

The original album famously celebrated their relationship two decades ago, making this sequel a poignant reflection of their rekindled love. Lopez, 54, adeptly timed the trailer release for her film alongside her new album on February 16, creating a synergistic buzz in the entertainment world.

Her husband, Affleck, is also featured in the film, adding a deeply personal touch to the project.

Noah's Secretive Role

Noah is part of an eclectic ensemble of celebrities participating in the film. The lineup includes Fat Joe, Kim Petras, Post Malone, Keke Palmer, Sofia Vergara, Jenifer Lewis, Jay Shetty, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Sadhguru, and Derek Hough.

This diverse group of talents converges to honor a figure who has left an indelible mark across various artistic domains. "There's just a fun collection of people who've come together to celebrate an icon and somebody who has, across different genres, really just blazed her own trail," Noah commented, highlighting the joyous and celebratory nature of the project.

Despite his involvement, Noah admits to being mainly in the dark about the complete details of the film, a testament to its closely guarded production process. "I'm really excited to see what it is,” he stated. “The funny thing is I don't know too much about it because they were very secretive about how they did it." Noah's limited knowledge of the project, limited to his contributions, has piqued his curiosity as much as it has the public's.

As he eagerly awaits the film's release, his sentiments echo those of countless fans worldwide, anticipating what promises to be a unique and heartfelt cinematic experience.
