New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz has revealed that he would like Hollywood actress Zoe Saldana to play his girlfriend, Elaina Watley, in the possible future movie version of his new memoir, Out of the Blue, which he co-wrote with FoxSports.com reporter Peter Schrager.
The 25-year-old sportsman, who named You Got Served actor Columbus Short to play himself, took a few seconds longer to decide on which actress should portray his partner, Watley's character, before deciding on the 34-year-old Columbiana star.
''I would say Zoe Saldana, '' he revealed to a source.
Cruz celebrated the book's launch at a Hennessy-sponsored party at Chelsea hot spot No. 8 on Monday night.
The NFL Champion' s memoir explores his success story as well as his path towards becoming one of football's Latino legends.
When quizzed about a possible wedding date to Watley, Cruz, who is famous for his post-touchdown salsa moves, hinted that it may not be as far off as imagined.
''Soon, soon. It's something that's in the works. When the timing's right, we'll eventually do it.''
