It turns out Carmen Electra’s Hutch sandwich with Owen Wilson and Amy Smart was just a warm-up for her next role.
In her follow-up to “Starksy & Hutch,” the former “Baywatch” beauty plays an all-out player. Titled “Getting Played,” the movie stars Bill Bellamy and Vivica A. Fox, who reprises her character from 2001′s “Two Can Play That Game.”
“Vivica and I and another actress, Stacey [Dash], we get together and decide to turn the tables on men and see if we can play them,” Electra said.
The women choose a random man and film each other seducing him so as to use the footage later to humiliate him. The hitch is that the guy is in on the joke.
Electra has one other film in the can, the animated “Lil’ Pimp,” although it’s still without a release date.
Fans of the actress might also be able to catch her on the small screen in coming months. After shooting “‘Til Death Do Us Part: Carmen & Dave” (see “Dave Navarro Reveals Reality TV’s Little Secret” ), Electra has been entertaining offers to follow in the footsteps of other MTV reality stars like Jessica Simpson and Kelly Osbourne and star in a sitcom.
“I’ve done a lot of guest appearances on many different sitcoms over the years, and that’s definitely something I’m interested in,” she said.
Electra and husband Dave Navarro are also not ruling out returning to MTV or at least doing another project together. “It’s magic when we’re together,” Navarro said. “It doesn’t matter where it is, you know. I’ll do it on CNN if I have to.”
While Navarro is talking with Jane’s Addiction about recording again, Electra, who released a self-titled album in 1993, has already been in the studio, although not as a solo artist.
“I’ve actually been doing a lot of music with the Pussycat Dolls, so it’s been fun for me to get back and perform,” she said of the burlesque troupe, who are recording a star-studded debut (see “Sing Like Christina And Dance Like Carmen? The Pussycat Dolls Want You” ).
The Pussycat Dolls are, of course, known for their Hollywood guests, and after making “Starsky & Hutch,” Electra knows just the dancer she wants to join them onstage.
“The one great thing about Ben [Stiller] when he’s dancing is that he really commits to each and every movement,” Electra said. “Ben on the dance floor in those disco clothes battling Har Mar Superstar was hilarious. It was fun to watch.”
