Rita Returns to Roots

Whoever said you can never go home again never met Rita Moreno.  The 86-year-old EGOT winner is having a third act that rivals her first two.  Not only is she enjoying major success on the Netflix reboot of One Day at a Time, but she’s returning to her roots.  As you know, Moreno won her Oscar playing Anita in the film version of West Side Story.  With Steven Spielberg poised to shoot a remake next year, Rita has joined the cast and will be playing Valentina.  If you don’t remember her, you ain’t alone – the character didn’t exist.  Valentina is actually based on the original character of Doc, who was Tony’s boss at the corner store.  By the by, Moreno will also be one of the executive producers of the flick!  Felicidades!!
