HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs.

We start off our bochinche on a great note. Actor-dancer-choreographer (and HOLA awardee) Sunilda Caraballo and her partner Eric Greenlund welcomes a healthy boy into the world. Eric Antonio Greenlund Caraballo, shown at right, was born the evening on July 16, 2010 weighing 9 lbs. 5 oz. and measuring 22 inches in length. In the words of the proud mama, she is "fully recovered and enjoying motherhood."

Jean-Marc Berne was selected to be the announcer for the new McDonald's McRib national Spanish radio commercial.

Steven Vega booked a role on the Onion News Network (online parody of CNN) through an e-mail casting notice he received through HOLA. He played a patron at a Gay Pride parade. You can see a photo of him in character at left.

Gilbert Cruz also booked a role on the Onion News Network, but as a FEMA spokesperson. In addition, he booked a role on the HBO drama "In Treatment."

Sylvia Roldán Dohi booked a Spanish voiceover for JumpStart (Safeway's employee fitness challenge).

Mariangélica Cuervo, shown at right, e-mailed us to let us know that she booked two commercials through an HOLA casting notice. They were for Party Wine Jeunesse and Tortillas Mixtecas. You can see them here and here.
