Natalie Martinez’s career is heating up…
The 31-year-old Cuban American actress has joined the cast of the upcoming live reading of the 2011 Black list script El Fuego Caliente.
Melanie Lynskey and Don Cheadle have also come on board, joining previously announced cast members Roselyn Sanchez, Jaime Camil, Judy Reyes, Stephanie Beatriz, Diego Boneta, Ben Schwartz, and narrator Anthony Mendez.
Written by Schwartz, who is also directing the live read, the story is a remake of Soapdish that follows telenovela icon Penelope, who desperately dreams of escaping to Hollywood stardom. After a jealous costar and conniving producer resurrect her character’s previously-killed off ex-lover, Penelope’s life becomes crazier than the show on which she stars.
The live read of El Fuego Caliente happens at the Montalban Theater in Hollywood, Saturday, November 21, 2015 at 8:00 PM.
Tickets are now available.
