8 Movies With Latinos That You Should See This Year

07.22.2016 | By |

Latino Movie Poster CollageIt used to be that whenever Hispanics appeared in English-language media, it was an aberration, a freak happening, a shocking departure (much like when Daddy Yankee’s ‘Gasolina’ was played on Z-100). But that’s not the case anymore. Look at the poster collage below (courtesy of Brian Latimer), it is a testament to how far Hispanic actors have integrated themselves into the fabric of American cinema and pop culture. In my latest NBCLatino article, I highlight the top 8 movies showcasing Latinos that you should keep an eye out for. It begins today with Zoe Saldana in Star Trek Beyond!

Weekend Look At What Movies To Watch On Demand

07.21.2016 | By |

If you’re a movie buff, which I know some of you are, you should really watch this 30m show on NY1 called – Talking Pictures On Demand. I was a guest for the second time and it really breaks down with a fine tooth comb the new releases and movies that are currently “on demand”. We reviewed “The Duel” starring Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson, “Len and Company,” “Green Room” and Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Demolition,” amongst others. Plus, a look at the brand-new Ghostbusters reboot. Click video above to have a look!

TODAY: Wanna Play A Game Of Moon Trivia?

07.20.2016 | By |

The TODAY show green room was packed when I arrived this morning. I bumped into the members of a band I had not heard of until today called NEED TO BREATHE (in capital letters). I’m actually listening to them on Spotify right now and I like they’re sound a lot. They sound very Mumford & Sons meet Imagine Dragons. Watch them get famous before my very eyes. At least I have them recorded on my FB Live video.  The reason for my appearance this morning with Kathie Lee & Hoda was for a regular segment called WHO KNEW?, a fun and informative trivia game where Kathie Lee asks people at the NBC Store questions based on a theme. If they get it right they win $100 on the spot, if they get it wrong they win an autographed Kathie Lee CD. My role is to give the answers context and color, thus hopefully interesting viewers in something else beyond the simple answer. You get learn and have fun at the same time. Today’s topic was MOON references in pop culture because today is National Moon Day. Take a look at the clip and see how many you can answer.

A New Pop Culture Podcast For You And Me

07.18.2016 | By |

*(Premiering Friday, August 12th)
Living in New York City is unlike any other city in the entire world. Sure, many global cities might look like it, but none of them offer the diversity, culture and smarts we do. I like to think of my new podcast – HIGHLY RELEVANT – much like my own New York City, one where diversity is welcomed and embraced, where arts & culture are top of mind, and, just a cool place to enjoy highly relevant conversations with some really talented people, some of whom you should already know… and some you should get to know. HIGHLY RELEVANT

Think filmmakers, actors, musicians, writers and journalists… how are they shaping pop culture and what does that mean for us? They say, “it’s about the journey,” well, I’d love for you to join me on this journey, one where you and I will hopefully learn a thing or two right within the confines of your #headphones. And don’t just be a listener, be a participant! Let me know what topics you’d like me to cover and who you’d like me to interview. This will be OUR podcast. The HIGHLY RELEVANT podcast with yours truly… every Friday beginning August 12th.

Only 2 Latinos Were Nominated For A 2016 Emmy… Anthony Mendez Was 1 Of Them

07.14.2016 | By |

He’s 2 for 2 now. Dominican voiceover talent Anthony Mendez has held the fort down once again for the Jane the Virgin camp (even powerhouse Gina Rodriguez hasn’t been able to get an Emmy nod) garnering a second Emmy nomination and only one of two Latinos nominated this year. How cool and large is that? (btw, how is it Gael Garcia Bernal, Oscar Isaac weren’t nominated?) Last year I had the pleasure of meeting up with Mendez for an NBCLatino story I was doing, at his home in New Jersey. We sat down to discuss the reaction of his first Emmy, the struggle and appreciation behind it and a look at his home-studio and how much his family is a part of his success. Mendez drops it from the heart, dude almost made me cry. Have a #TBT look below…

Should I Get This Fedora?

07.13.2016 | By |

Back in the day, during my Frank Sinatra phase, I would wear fedoras that never fit me well (I couldn’t afford new ones before), so I never maximized the look. Now that I’m at an age where wisdom and character meet, I might be able to pull them off now, maybe. Right after I finished doing a show over NY1, inside the enchanting Chelsea Market, Rag & Bone was having sale on this bad boy. I wanted to get it, but… no one is using the classic fedora’s anymore so I had my doubts. What do you peeps think?
