This 'Jane The Virgin' Star Has a Cameo In 'Dash & Lily' That You Might Have Missed!

This 'Jane The Virgin' Star Has a Cameo In 'Dash & Lily' That You Might Have Missed!

There’s one specific cameo in the new Netflix series Dash & Lily that you may have not noticed!

Within the holiday show, there’s a fake Pixar movie called Collation, about a romance between a couple of office supplies, a piece of paper and a stapler.

The fictional movie becomes a (no pun intended) staple throughout the course of the show, and at one point, Lily (Midori Francis) mentions that she loves when the highlighter encourages the stapler to “Be bold.”

Well, that highlighter’s line was delivered by none other than Jane The Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez, who actually has a connection to one of the series’ directors and executive producers Brad Silberling, who helped the cameo come to fruition.

Brad Silberling, one of our producers who also directed the first two episodes, was also a producer and director on Jane the Virgin,” showrunner Joe Tracz told TV Line. “So he was like, ‘You know, I think I could get Gina to do it.’ He reached out her, she was like, ‘Totally!’ and she recorded a bunch of different takes of the line. It was so much fun to actually get to pay off one of these writers’ room jokes that we had.”

“There was so much Collation stuff that got cut for time. Our favorite writers’ room parlor game was figuring out which celebrities would voice which office supplies. ‘What punny catchphrases do they all have?’ At one point, we imagined Oprah voicing a Post-It note that said, ‘Stick with love!’ Between all of the writers, we pretty much cast Collation. If Pixar gave us a call, we’d be happy to work with them on that.”

Fun fact: The artist who illustrated the movie poster for Collation, Katy Wu, has actually worked as Pixar sketch artist!
