Soon to be seen as a notorious drug dealer (and brother of WILL FERRELL) in the hilarious telenovela spoof CASA DE MI PADRE, actor DIEGO LUNA finally gets a chance to show off his comedy skills. One of Mexico’s most popular and well thought of performers, LUNA seldom gets a chance to demonstrate on-screen his flair for comedic acting.
In fact, he’s just finished shooting what may be his most challenging dramatic role yet. About this time next year, he’ll be sharing the screen with JODIE FOSTER, MATT DAMON, WILLIAM FICHTNER and ALICE BRAGA in writer/director NEILL BLOMKAMP’S sci-fi epic ELYSIUM. Shrouded in secrecy, there is very little known about the project and LUNA is doing his bit to keep things that way. The actor tell us that the confidentiality agreement he had to sign was almost as long as the script so he’s not spilling any beans except to say what a great time he had on the set.
