Luke Ganalon will soon be sharing screen time with a noted Latino comedian…
The Latino child actor has landed a role on ABC’s still-untitled semi-autobiographical comedy pilot starring John Leguizamo.
Co-created by the Colombian-American actor/comedian and written by Jeff Astrof, the project is based on Leguizamo’s life as a husband, father and fish out of water on New York’s upper West Side as reflected in his one-man shows.
Woven into this world are his privileged wife, his friends from his life back in the Bronx, his mother and grandfather who try to keep him grounded in his Latin roots, and his own kids who he worries are getting a little too spoiled and are losing touch with reality..
Ganalon, who most recently starred as the lead in the movie Bless Me, Ultima, will portray Toby.
Ganalon’s other credits include the film The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernandez and guest-starring roles on Grey’s Anatomy, Don’t Trust the B**** in Apt. 23 and Shake It Up!
