Dionne Warwick Would Cast Teyana Taylor to Play Her in a Series, Netflix Is Down

Dionne Warwick is ready to tell her life story on film — and she already has eyes on who she’d like star in the lead role.

via People:

On Wednesday, the 80-year-old singer — who has gained new fame with the youth as an avid tweeter — posted a video directed at Netflix with an idea for who she’d like to see play her in a hypothetical series: singer and dancer Teyana Taylor.

“This is a case for @netflix,” she captioned the video, where she asked if people would really watch a series about her life. “Please don’t ask who I would cast to play me as it would obviously be @TEYANATAYLOR.”

“????????????????????,” wrote Taylor, 30, who recently announced she’s “retiring” from music.

Netflix’s Twitter account was quick to slide into Warwick’s replies, writing “taking ?? notes ??..” The “I Say a Little Prayer” singer replied, “I’ll call ya!”

The new post from Warwick comes just a day after Warwick shared a photo of Taylor with the caption, “It runs in the family.” Taylor quote tweeted it, writing “Period. ?” (The two aren’t actually related.)

Since Teyana has officially ‘retired’ from music, we think this is a project she should absolutely take on — if given the opportunity.
