There’s a fleeting moment during May in New York where the weather is simply the stuff of magic—those sunny days where there’s no chance of rain, no more snow for months, and no hot temperature–induced, soul-altering smells sneaking up from the subway. Today is that day...

Rosie Perez Talks ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ Reboot, Her New Show ‘Now and Then,’ and People Thinking She Was a ‘Fluke’

Rosie Perez recently reunited with her White Men Can’t Jump cast members Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes at the 2022 Academy Awards in honor of the basketball comedy’s 30th anniversary (making it the first time she has been invited back to the ceremony in 28 years). The 1992 classic movie, which was one of her career’s most iconic roles, is set to get the reboot treatment this year with a script from black-ish creator Kenya Barris and will star Sinqua Walls and Jack Harlow. But Perez is not one of those people who look down on remakes.

Rosie Perez supports White Men Can't Jump remake but is not involved thus far

When the Oscars reunited White Men Can't Jump costars Woody Harrelson, Wesley Snipes, and Rosie Perez to present this past March, Perez was overwhelmed with emotion at the lengthy standing ovation they received. "Oh, my God — I almost burst into tears," she told EW during an interview for her latest project, the Apple TV+ bilingual drama series Now and Then. "I was so shocked, in total happy tears. But I don't remember what I said. My husband told me I yelled out, 'What?!' Which I don't think I did, but I was in shock. It was amazing."

Rosie Perez on playing her first bilingual character in Now & Then: 'I was shaking in my boots'

While Hollywood seems endlessly enamored by the many male stars who go "method" for their performances, Rosie Perez may be one of the greatest method actors working today. She gives every role she embodies — even light-hearted characters like Renee Montoya in Birds of Prey or Megan Briscoe in The Flight Attendant — dimensions and layers of complexity to fully bring them to life.

'Americans are willing to read subtitles and what is going on with all these amazing stories,' Manolo Cardona adds. In 2017, writer-producers Ramón Campos and Gema R. Neira collaborated on Cable Girls, the first Spanish-language original produced by Netflix. They've since worked together on a number of projects from 45rpm to High Seas, and most recently collaborated on creating the bilingual thriller Now & Then — premiering May 20 on Apple TV+. Twenty years after they hid the truth about the death of their college best friend, Ana (Marina de Tavira), Pedro (José María Yazpik), Sofia (Maribel Verdú), Marcos (Manolo Cardona), and Daniela (Soledad Villamil) panic when they are blackmailed by someone who claims to know what happened on that fateful night. Set in Miami, the series also features Rosie Perez as Flora, the detective who couldn't solve the case in 2000 but is hell-bent on cracking it now.

Is Now and Then starring Rosie Perez on Netflix?

The drama thriller Now and Then will undeniably be a worthwhile experience for fans of the genre, but is it on Netflix?. The streaming powerhouse continues to impress with its abundant amount of compelling content, especially in the thriller department with such exciting endeavors as Ratched, Alice in Borderland, and The Silent Sea. So it’s really no surprise people would be interested to know if the new series Now and Then, the bilingual thriller with an outstanding cast of talented individuals playing out a very intriguing narrative, is on the menu for Netflix subscribers.

Rosie Perez: “I would’ve killed to work with someone like Beyoncé”

Rosie Perez is explaining to NME why the Oscars proved particularly tricky this year. “I actually changed into pants [after the ceremony] because the dress [I was wearing] was so tight” she says in her trademark New York accent. “The funny thing is, my Spanx ripped as I was getting [changed], and I didn’t have a second one, so I was holding my stomach in the whole night. [Earlier], everyone was stepping on the train to my gown too, so I said: ‘Oh forget it, I don’t care, so I let it go!’”
