We weren’t kidding when we advised you to brush up on your “Be a Star” lyrics: Tyra Banks has now told Variety she will officially be reappearing as Eve in the long-overdue Life-Size sequel. The (kind of) talk-show host is also attached to serve as executive producer, gunning for late-2016 and the holidays as her next chance to be an inspirational, magical doll-slash-human. “There is no one else that can play Eve but me, thank you very much!” she (kind of) joked with the trade. “We have not talked about casting at all, so I have no idea who is going to be the young person that will be the owner of Eve,” she added, referencing the fact there’s no word yet on Lindsay Lohan or her successor. Regardless, Banks still thinks this one will be a “blockbuster on TV” for Disney Channel, because Eve will help the world — and she’ll do it right.
