The 45-year-old Latino actor has landed a role in Disney’s feature Stargirl.
The film, which will be released on Disney’s forthcoming streaming platform, stars Grace VanderWaal as the titular character and Graham Verchere as Leo.
Julia Hart is directing the film from a script written by Kristin Hahn. Based on Jerry Spinelli’s young adult novel of the same title, the story follows Leo Borlock who, in a world where the spaces grow bigger even as they get smaller, meets Stargirl Caraway, a bright, authentic light who breaks through the sea of teenage confusion.
Hernandez will play Mr. Rabineau, a teacher at the kids’ school.
Filming will begin this month in New Mexico.
Hernandez’s credits include portraying Agent Jasper Sitwell in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Thor, The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
