REESE Witherspoon has called on Jennifer Lopez and Ice Cube to join the cast of Big Little Lies, season three.
During a Zoom live with co-star Laura Dern, the pair joked about the rapper joining the cast after Laura misheard Reese mention an ice cream and thought she was going to say Ice Cube would be on the show.
The pair then began revealing their dream casting choices, with Reese revealing “I am always hoping for J.Lo to turn up”.
“Come on J.Lo!” agreed Laura.
They also called on fans to share their “dream new characters to arrive in the world of Monterey” with suggestions including Amy Adams, Julia Roberts, and Brad Pitt.
Season three of the hit HBO show remains up in the air because the A list cast are booked on other projects.
The drama has one of the most impressive roll calls in TV history, but it looks like Reese, Laura, Nicole Kidman, Zoe Kravitz, Shailene Woodley, and Meryl are tied down with other projects.

President of the network Casey Bloys has told TV Line in 2019: “The reality is, they are some of the busiest actresses working in Hollywood. I just think it’s not realistic.
“I love this group of people – I would do anything with them.
“We have deals with some of them — Nicole is doing her next show [The Undoing] with us.
“Look, if they all came to me and said, ‘We worked out all of our schedules!’ – then sure. But I just don’t think it’s realistic.”
