Carlos Santos is preparing for Valet service…
The 35-year-old Puerto Rican actor and comedian will star in Lionsgate’s The Valet, the English-language remake of Francis Veber’s French film.
Santos joins a roster of new cast additions that includes Noemi Gonzalez (Selena: The Series, East Los High), Tiana Okoye (Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens, The Good Place), Diany Rodriguez (Law & Order: Organized Crime, New Amsterdam), Armando Hernandez (El César series on Prime Video, Disney+ series El Repatriado.
They join stars Eugenio Derbez and Samara Weaving in the film, which is being directed by Richard Wong.
The film, written by Rob Greenberg and Bob Fisher, follows Olivia (Weaving), a movie star who enlists Antonio (Derbez) – a parking valet – to pose as her lover to cover for a relationship with a married man. As a valet, the hard-working Antonio usually flies under the radar but his ruse with Olivia thrusts him into the spotlight and brings him to see himself more clearly than ever before.
Santos and Hernandez will play the valets who work with Antonio at a tony Beverly Hills restaurant.
Gonzalez will play Clara, Antonio’s sister and the wife of Benny, Antonio’s boss.
Okoye is Amanda, Olivia’s dedicated but jaded assistant.
Rodriguez will play Natalie, who works at Antonio’s neighborhood bike shop.
Derbez and Ben Odell are producing through their 3Pas Studios banner, while Meredith Wieck and Aaron Edmonds are overseeing the project for Lionsgate.
