Supermodel Liya Kebede Heads to the Silver Screen

There’s quite the model trend going on right now, and we’re not talking about clothing! First we heard about Kate Upton’s role in The Three Stooges, then Candice announced her interest in a possible music career, and now Liya Kebede is adding actress to her list of talents.

The Ethiopian supermodel - who has appeared in countless Vogue editorials and campaigns including Lord & Taylor and Balenciaga - is set to star in the new french flick, Sur La Piste Du Marsupilami, which translates to On the Trail of the Marsupilami. The film is based on a series of Belgian comics about two reporters on a quest to find the mysterious animal, the Marsupilami, whereupon they meet Queen Paya, played by Liya. Below is the trailer with a few snippets of Liya in what looks like a comedic and cute movie.
