Leah Remini is auditioning for the role of a lifetime: Godparent to Jennifer Lopez
and Marc Anthony's unborn baby
"We're asking for an audition for godparent roles," Remini, 36, joked to PEOPLE at the premiere after-party for Eva Longoria's new comedy Over Her Dead Body
Tuesday night. "Um ... so, we're waiting to hear back."
The actress says she and husband Angelo Pagan, "need like a day – because we're not good at cold-reading – so that we can just prepare."
Added Pagan: "Not sure whether it entails that we have to sing, dance, recite a monologue, but we're ready!"
Asked how Lopez is doing now, Remini added, "Great! She's great! I mean, look, she was on tour. She's a strong girl."
