Things are about to get a little crazy for Vincent Rodriguez III…
The Latino professional actor, singer, dancer has been cast as a potential series regular on Showtime’s comedy pilot Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, starring Rachel Bloom.
The project centers on Rebecca (Bloom), a successful, driven and possibly crazy young woman who impulsively gives up everything – her partnership at a prestigious law firm and her upscale apartment in Manhattan – in a desperate attempt to find love and happiness in that exotic hotbed of romance and adventure: West Covina, CA.
Rodriguez, who starred in Broadway’s Here Lies Love, will play Josh, Rebecca’s childhood boyfriend who she runs into years later and who acts as the catalyst for her dramatic life change.
The CBS Television Studios pilot, a half-hour with musical elements, starts production in October. Marc Webb will direct the pilot.
