Esai Morales is giving his state of the union address, of sorts.
The 50-year-old Puerto Rican actor and Magic City star is the running for SAG-AFTRA’s first sole position of National President. And, he’s speaking out about his candidacy.
To drum up support, the La Bamba actor shared a video statement with Deadline.com about his candidacy.
“I served on the National Board alongside Esai and I know him to be a caring and dedicated person. I believe the SAG-AFTRA membership will be well served with Esai as our National President,” said Ed Harris about Morales’ candidacy.
SAG-AFTRA is an American labor union representing more than 160,000 film and television principal and background performers throughout the world. The national position carries a two-year term.
