Hollywood needs Latino actors: Mexico’s Bichir

9 appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that he thinks the mother of his only child shouldn’t be shut out from receiving the honor because she’s a reality star, the spokeswoman for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce reiterates that she’s not eligible . “We don’t have reality stars on the Walk of Fame,” Ana Martinez tells omg Yahoo, explaining that they don’t have a category for it. “We’re happy to consider reality stars once they get nominated for, or win, an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar. We’ll consider them when they’re legitimate actors or singers.” Of course, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has honored others who don’t qualify under the categories she listed . In the past, animated characters including Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck have received stars, as did the Apollo 11 crew, Magic Johnson for his ownership of a theater, and Muhammad Ali. While Kardashian may not “qualify,” it’s the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce that makes the rules, and doesn’t appear to want to bend them one bit for Kardashian, or grow with the times to accept there are some out there who could want to see reality stars as deserving of such accolades. But when challenged on this, Martinez appears rather defensive, changing the subject back to Kardashian, telling omg Yahoo, “I hate to say it, but a lot of people just don’t like like her. No one has ever nominated her.” Though it seems unlikely that Kardashian will be nominated anytime soon, she does have a few acting credits to her name. And even so, the 32-year-old has faith that others will come around to embracing reality TV as a true art form . “I think [reality] is still a new form of entertainment that was kind of an unexpected thing,” she told V magazine in 2012, adding that it’s not unlike the progression and acceptance of rap music. “It reminds me of rap music. When rap music first came out, people were like, We dont understand this, what is this, its just a fad.

Instead he landed in jail. In a sting operation worthy of Hollywood, Mohamed Abdi Hassan was lured from Somalia to Belgium with promises of work on a documentary about high-seas crime that would “mirror his life as a pirate,” federal prosecutor Johan Delmulle said Monday. But rather than being behind the camera as an expert adviser, Abdi Hassan ended up behind bars, nabbed as he landed Saturday at Brussels airport. “(He’s) one of the most important and infamous kingpin pirate leaders, responsible for the hijacking of dozens of commercial vessels from 2008 to 2013,” Delmulle said. Abdi Hassan whose nickname, Afweyne, means “Big Mouth” was charged with hijacking the Belgian dredger Pompei and kidnapping its nine-member crew in 2009, Delmulle said. The Pompei’s crew was released after 10 weeks in captivity when the ship’s owner paid a reported $3 million ransom. Belgium caught two pirates involved in the hijacking, convicted them and sentenced them to nine and 10 years in prison. But prosecutors still wanted the ringleaders.

His directorial debut (“Refuge” in English) also has a US-Mexican flavor, with English and Spanish dialogue to tell the story of a boy who works in a circus in Mexico before making a perilous trip to the United States. Sitting on a sofa, Bichir appeared relieved to have finished the first three weeks of shooting on site in Mexico before cameras roll in the southern US city of New Orleans. “I thought the process was going to be much harder in terms of nerves,” the 50-year-old film-maker told AFP. “Could it be that age makes you more cynical?” “There’s a director sleeping, hidden in every actor,” said Bichir, scion of a family of actors. Bichir has a role in his movie alongside US star Eva Longoria, his father Alejandro and his Canadian girlfriend Stefanie Sherk. The film, he said, is being made “with much more heart than money.” “Part of what we want to do with ‘Refugio’ is to open a breach in order to continue telling more stories, to win some sort of credibility and be able to put different studios and actors on the table,” said the actor. Hollywood Latino power Bichir, who played Fidel Castro in Steven Soderbergh’s “Che” saga and had a role in Oliver Stone’s Mexican drug cartel film “Savages,” divides his time between Los Angeles and Mexico City. “I think that we Latino actors in Hollywood are very much needed but it will be more interesting when we generate our own projects,” he said. Actor Demian Bichir attends the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2013 Installation Luncheon at He said the growing clout of Hispanic actors in Tinseltown has nothing to do with “the Hollywood dream.” “It has more to do with an adventurous spirit. For me, opening a path to the United States was hard work and I am where I am thanks to hard work, not talent,” he said. But the prizes he won at the Screen Actors Guild ceremony and Independent Spirit Award for his performance in a “A Better Life” tell a different story. He now stars in the new FX series “The Bridge” as a Mexican detective based in the drug violence-torn border city of Ciudad Juarez who teams up with a US homicide cop, played by Diane Kruger. Mexico’s drug violence “The big, stressful problem in Mexico right now is violence,” Bichir said.
