How to Get Away With Murder star Karla Souza has her next movie role all picked out. She just needs someone to give her a call.

Speaking on the red carpet at the first ever InStyle Awards in Los Angeles on Monday night, Souza joked that she wanted Ansel Elgort to stare into her Benedetta Bruzziches clutch.

“I’m really excited about the new movie that he’s in called Baby Driver,” Souza said. “They’re looking for a Latina to play a Latina in the movie, and I’m like ‘Hello!’ Jon Hamm was just cast and I saw it today, so…”

Directed by Edgar Wright, focuses on a getaway car driver (Elgort) who listens to his own soundtrack of music as works. Jamie Foxx and Lily James are also in the cast, along with Hamm, who was cat last week as a villain.

The inaugural InStyle Awards took place at the Getty Center on Monday, with famous faces such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Michelle Williams, Julia Roberts, Selena Gomez, and Kim Kardashian in attendance.

Asked jokingly if she hoped to network during the event, Souza said, “You know what, I just moved to the U.S., and I still don’t know who is who, and when I first moved to Mexico it took me two years to go to an event and know who people were, so that’s where I’m at in my career right now.”

Baby Driver is set to begin filming next year.
