HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to “gossip”. In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

David Zayas, shown at right, has just been added to the list of stars of Sony's star-studded remake of the film Annie. Directed by Will Gluck and produced by Jay-Z, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith and James Lassiter, he joins Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx, Academy Award nominee Quvenzhané Wallis, Cameron Díaz, Rose Byrne and 2013 HOLA Award honoree Bobby Cannavale in the cast. In addition, he will be filming the movie Ride (written, directed and co-produced by Academy Award winner Helen Hunt, who also stars). To that end, he was recently profiled in The Hollywood Reporter.
