Jaime Camil is lacing up for his next role…
The 43-year-old Mexican actor/singer has joined the cast of the indie boxing film Glass Jaw, directed by Jeff Celentano (Breaking Point).
Glass Jaw is the redemption story of Travis Austin (Lee Kholafai), a one-time boxing champion, who goes to prison and loses everything. After his release, he experiences the trials and tribulations of redeeming his reputation, his belt and Dana Sasso (Korrina Rico), his one true love.
In addition to Camil, Kholafai and Rico, the film also stars Reynaldo Gallegos, Jon Gries (Taken), Ashlee Macropoulos (This Just In), Mark Rolston (The Departed), Vernon Wells (Commando) and Steven Williams (21 Jump Street).
Shooting is currently underway in Los Angeles, with Glass Jaw set for release later this year.
Camil, a Mexican telenovela star who has risen to acclaim with his role on the CW’s Jane the Virgin, previously appeared in the film Pulling Strings and as a voice character in The Secret Life of Pets.
