We’re sure James Franco and Seth Rogen will end Batman’s reign at the box office this weekend with Pineapple Express. But when Blindie watched the stoner flick, it was Rosie Perez’s role that caught us by surprise.

The Latina actress, who is best known for her roles in Do The Right Thing and White Men Can’t Jump, played against type in the comedy blockbuster as a crooked cop. Perez particularly shined in the final scenes, which found her in a fist fight with the yummy James Franco.

In other Rosie news: She’s heading to the small screen on NBC’s surprisingly well-written girlfriend drama, Lipstick Jungle, alongside Brooke Shields, Lindsay Price and Kim Raver.

With her bold lyrics and fresh fro, singer-songwriter Imani Coppola of Brooklyn-based hip-hop/pop duo Little Jackie (also, with programmer Adam Pallin), has an indie hit on her hands with “The World Should Revolve Around Me”—off their CD, The Stoop.

We recently spotted the video for the single on TV, and were elated by the skating culture, Brooklyn stoops, and a cameo by actress Rosie Perez (no, she didn’t give us any aggressive dance moves in spandex and ghetto gold earrings!)

As for the aforementioned lyrics: If every woman felt this way about themselves, we wouldn’t have so many Lifetime Original Movies:

There’s only one me in the galaxy
I am an endangered species
This kind of flower don’t grow on Earth
Just lettin’ you know for what it’s worth
