HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Eduardo Ramos, shown at right, e-mailed us to say that he booked a role in the short film Extraordinary Day. In his words, "First audition through HOLA, first movie booked, first of many to come. HOORAY!!" As a model, he can also be seen on the Elle magazine website as the ELLE Homme of the Day (with accompanying interview and article) here.

Gilbert Cruz is hosting the Open Salon Night at INTAR Theater in the Hell's Kitchen/Clinton section of Manhattan. It occurs every Monday night. Signup starts at 6:30pm for the first ten participant which enables them to perform ten minutes of material (be it a monologue, scene, song or poem). For more information, click here.

Bill Santiago is currently touring his standup act, with stops in Sunnyvale, California (at Rooster T. Feathers); Mill Valley, California (at Throckmorton Theater); San Francisco, California (at The Garage Arts Space); San Antonio, Texas (at River Center Comedy Club); and Hermosa Beach, California (Hermosa Comedy and Magic Club), now through April 2011. He can also be seen tonight, Friday and Saturday night on the Showtime networks performing standup comedy in his "LOL-Laugh Out Loud" comedy special (check local listings for times and channels). A sneak preview can be seen here.

Antonio García, Jr. most recently produced and acted in the short film Tolero. Written by, co-produced and costarring Ricardo Cisneros, the film directed by Daniel Hilsinger is currently in post-production. For more information, go here.

William J. Vila is set to open as Egyptian pharaoh Amunhotep III in the Clarinda Karpov play Ankhst. Directed by Ted Mornel, the show is scheduled for a February and March run in the Beckmann Theater at the American Theater of Actors near Columbus Circle in Manhattan.
