And now the funnylandy’s gone and done it, as she reveals this week on Rodney Perry Live.

“I’m in a position to be workin’ on a film with a star that I have loved ever since I was a child – my role model,” she tells host Rodney Perry. “It’s Forest Whitaker,” she says of the man who won an Oscar for 2006’s The Last King of Scotland.

“It’s the ‘Untitled Family Wedding Project.’ It’s a Fox Searchlight movie, starring Forest and America Ferrera, from Ugly Betty. Lance Gross is in it, from Tyler Perry‘s TV show [House of Payne].

“It’s a love story between America and Lance. Forest plays the father to Lance. I play Forrest’s sister-in-law and my husband is Warren Sapp,” continues the six-foot Shondrella, who had a feature role in the 2004 sleeper hit Napoleon Dynamite, and starred in the UPN series One On One.

“He showed up and was like, ‘Bam! You tall.’

“And I was like, ‘Bam! You big. Let’s do it, boo.'”
