Whoopi Goldberg is mostly known for her role on daytime talk show “The View”, which sometimes requires her to get down and dirty with the guests (see: Ann Coulter). But she’s only been on a few television shows in the past year, taking on small parts with “Glee”, “Suburgatory”, and “The Middle”. The producers of “666 Park Avenue” want that to change and say they wrote a role just for her.
“Whoopi’s an incredible actor, so when we heard that she was a horror fan, we wrote the role for her,” said executive producer David Wilcox. He added that she’ll play “a mysterious resident of the Drake who helps Jane unlock the secret of the building’s true evil origins,”
Goldberg has been suffering along with thousands of New Yorkers who dealt with massive flooding and power outages during Hurricane Sandy, telling TMZ recently that she’s trying to put her life back together.
“I’m just trying to get my s**t rebuilt,” she said.
