Jennifer Coolidge would love a ‘White Lotus’ Tanya prequel series

2 min read

Jennifer Coolidge would love to reprise her role as Tanya McQuaid.

As fans of “The White Lotus,” Tanya was killed off in Season 2 of Mike White’s award-winning series. However, Coolidge said bringing White on board required others to somehow bring him back.

“For me, I think I’m a whiner or something,” Coolidge told me Wednesday at the premiere of his new action rom-com, “Shotgun Wedding.”

I suggested that Tanya should get her own origin story prequel series. “If you can keep it up,” Coolidge said. “You’re going to run into [White], I know you. Tell him.”

He was not very happy when he learned of Tanya’s death. “I said, ‘Do I really have to kill?'” Coolidge recalled. “And [White] Said, ‘Yes, it’s over, Jennifer.’

Coolidge happily reported that his gay fans were coming to dance remixes of his now-iconic line and singing, “These gays, they’re tryin’ to kill me.”

“A lot of these nightclubs, it’s the last song of the night,” Coolidge said.

“Shotgun Wedding” stars Jennifer Lopez and Josh Duhamel as a couple whose tropical destination wedding is cut short when kidnappers take their guests hostage. Coolidge played Duhamel’s mother. “Josh Duhamel is really a James Bond-type,” Coolidge said. “I think he will eventually be asked to play James Bond. She’s very smart and she’s very sexy and I think she and Jennifer have a lot of chemistry.”

The Jason Moore-directed movie also stars Lenny Kravitz, Sonia Braga, D’Arcy Carden and Chech Marin.

“Shotgun Wedding” premieres on Amazon Prime Video on January 27
