Hold up… now I’m wondering “who isn’t in Eva Mendes’ new film, Girl in Progress?!”
As I’ve written before, the movie itself looks very interesting. They’ve got a pretty stellar cast, a good storyline, and now, even El Cantautor del Pueblo himself, Mr. Espinoza Paz.

I thought Jenni Rivera was the only Regional Mexican musician going all Hollywood on us.
She’s starring as an incarcerated mother in the forthcoming film Filly Brown alongside Edward James Olmos. Espinoza, meanwhile, is playing Eugenio Derbez’s cousin in the follow up to Under The Same Moon for director Patricia Riggen. He’s also on the movie’s soundtrack with the duet Así o Más, which also features María Jóse.
