Tony Plana is going independent…
The 64-year-old Cuban actor and former Ugly Betty star has been cast in the upcoming indie comedy Headshop, directed by Kim Bass.
Plana will co-star opposite Loretta Devine, Kimberly Elise, Deon Cole, Michael Jai White, Reno Wilson, Marla Gibbs, Kris Marshall, Donis Leonard Jr., and Claudia Zevallos round out the cast of the film, which is currently shooting in Los Angles.
Written by Bass, the film follows therapist Dr. Latrice Monroe who, after a devastating loss, tries to reconnect to her roots by opening her new office in a neighborhood that’s very resistant to her services. As her new neighbors slowly open up, they inadvertently teach her the true meaning of community.
Plana’s previous credits include the television shows Jane the Virgin, Alpha House, Desperate Housewives and Colony.
