HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Dominic Colón wrapped up the role of Tito, in the film Mr. Popper's Penguins (directed by Mark Waters), where he had scenes opposite Jim Carrey and Angela Lansbury. In January, he wrote and directed Hiro's Wings, a children's play that deals with the topic of bullying at Teatro El Puente in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. His play Crush just got accepted and will be seen April 14, 2011 at the Downtown Urban Theater Festival. He can also be seen as Manny Spamboni in "The Electric Company" (PBS), which is currently in its third season. Finally, he just booked a supporting role in in the feature film, I Want To Dance, which begins production in March!!

Cristina Rodríguez, at left, booked a role in a staged play reading after reading about it in one of HOLA's daily e-mail announcements. She writes, "I always submit myself to everything I may be fit for and to be quite honest, the majority of the time, I get to go in and audition and even get a callback. I appreciate the announcements especially when I don't have an agent to represent me. But I've been able to go about. So I keep it up."

Javier E. Gómez did some dubbing for an internet-only commercial for Hewlett-Packard Total Care.

The film The Imperialists Are Still Alive!, written and directed by Zeina Durra and starring Élodie Bouchez, José María de Tavira, Karen Lee Gorney, Ricky García, R.N. Rao, Reza Salazar, Israel Hernández, Coati Mundi and Laura Patalano, is scheduled for worldwide release in March 2011 after a successful showing at numerous film festival, including the renowned Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
