He also told us about some of the fun things we’ll find on the Blu-ray/DVD. You can listen to him and watch him do the sexy lover walk.

We thought we would re-share our April 2017 post with other cast members for you to enjoy if you missed it. — A.O.

Eugenio Derbez is back with a new comedy in which he wares two hats, producer and star. They are some funny stuff in this film—Derbez is Derbez and it’s all about family.

Raphael Alejandro

Some great talent, like the young Raphael Alejandro, who is a scene-stealer, joins him, along with icon Raquel Welch.

I enjoyed talking to the young actor, Alejandro who is quite a charmer and he told us, “I am the junior Latin lover, come see my movie.”

Rob Lowe

While we were talking about actors creating their own projects for online and cable, Rob Lowe told us “everybody does everything today and that’s really cool.”

Raquel Welch

Welch was a delight to listen to and a funny lady also. When asked about her role in the film, she said, she took it cause no one would believe that she would. Once she did her research on Eugenio Derbez and met him, she was on board.

Welch also told us about a comedy series (Date My Dad) she just worked on up in Vancouver, Canada. Where she gets to play a sexy Latina grandmother named, Rosa. Listen in to hear what she says when she’s not on the set.

I asked Derbez and Salma Hayek about the film soundtrack and their version of Jose Jose’s “El triste,” and I really liked their answers.

The plot follows; Maximo (Derbez) who has a dream to be rich without ever having to work a day in his life. Having made a career of seducing rich older women, he marries a wealthy woman more than twice his age. 25 years later, spoiled and bored from waking up next to his now 80-year-old wife—he gets the surprise of his life when she ends up dumping him for a younger car salesman. Forced out of his mansion and desperate for a place to stay, he must move in with his estranged sister, Sara, (Salma Hayek) and her nerdy but adorable son, Hugo (Raphael Alejandro) in their small apartment. Anxious to return to the lap of luxury, Maximo uses his nephew’s crush on a classmate to get to his new target—her grandmother, Celeste, a widowed billionaire.

You know with Eugenio involved, it’s going to be pretty funny. It also stars, Kristen Bell and directed by Ken Marino, and it hits theaters on April 28. — A.O.

That was much more enjoyable than being scared out of my head.

I love the casting, liked that it was an international crew, from the director to the actors.

Experience the Splendor and Wonders of LUZIA! In SoCal!

Cirque du Soleil’s astounding Big Top production is coming to Southern California, LUZIA! In Los Angeles from December 8, 2017 at Dodger Stadium and in Costa Mesa from February 21, 2018 at OC Fair and Event Center.

Cirque du Soleil is pleased to announce the upcoming Southern California engagements of its delightfully-imaginative and visually-stunning production LUZIA, a waking dream of Mexico. Audiences are invited to a redesigned white-and-gold Big Top in Los Angeles and Costa Mesa to escape to an imaginary Mexico–a sumptuous world suspended between dreams and reality.

In a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA takes audiences on a surrealistic journey through a vibrant world filled with wonders, playfulness and striking artistry. Smoothly passing from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity. Rich in awe-inspiring moments, LUZIA enchants by incorporating rain into acrobatic and artistic scenes–a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.
