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.

He just booked a co-starring role on "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" (Netflix), a co-starring role opposite Michael Chiklis in "Gotham" (Fox), a guest-starring role on "Power" (Starz!), and a recurring role on the upcoming Sarah Jessica Parker show on HBO, "Divorce". In addition, he co-starred in the upcoming webseries "Cornelia" (created by Rose Gutiérrez), where he plays the title character's husband. He booked this last year after reading a casting notice sent by HOLA to its members and self-submitting. For more information on him, click here.
