It’s Paco time for Joseph A. Nunez…
The Latino actor/comedian has been in cast in ABC’s comedy pilot The Winklers.
From Everybody Loves Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal; Henry Winkler’s son, director Max Winkler; and son-in-law, actor Rob Reinis, The Winklers centers on Jack (portrayed by Domenick Lombardozzi), an emotionally reserved construction worker who learns about love, life and hugs while unexpectedly living with his in-laws — successful actor Henry (portrayed by Henry Winkler) and Tita Winkler (Judith Light), the fabulous, fierce momma bear of the family.
The comedy pilot is based on Henry Winkler’s relationship with his son-in-law, Reinis.
Nunez will portray Paco, a construction worker on Jack’s crew whose secret passion is dance.
Nunez is best known for his recurring role as Manche Sanchez on the show Prison Break.
His film credits include The 40-Year-Old Virgin, The Pursuit of Happyness and Bridesmaids.
