Music superstar Ricky Martin will soon star as Ché alongside Elena Roger and Michael Cerveris in the upcoming Broadway revival of EVITA, and Martin revealed to V Magazine that he's excited to take on the characteR. Martin told V: 'Che is a really cool character and you can do so much with him. The director said, 'I don't want you to just be Che Guevara. Let's take it to another level. One night you can be him, but the next night I want you to be the taxi driver, the next evening the bartender. Literally, be the voice of the people.' So I won't get bored, that's for sure.'
