Luis Avila is a divo…
The Latino actor has joined the cast of the indie high school comedy Divos!
Ryan Patrick Bartley will make his feature-film directorial debut from a screenplay by Matt Steele. Jayson Bernard and Roberto Rosario Jr.of J&R Productions are producing along with In the Basement Entertainment. The film is executive produced by Bernard.
In Divos!, Ricky Redmond (Steele) is South Hamilton High School’s musical stage star whose turf is encroached upon in his senior year when the school’s baseball MVP Josh Kelly (Timothy Brundidge) gives him a run at auditions. Mustering up some team spirit, Ricky takes Josh under his wing to teach the rookie actor the ins and outs of being a teenage divo —or male diva. The tables turn and soon Josh attempts to sabotage Ricky’s school stardom.
The cast includes Jake Busey, Nicole Sullivan, Marissa Jaret Winokur, Jason Stuart, Julia Boyd, Chris Schermerhorn, Daniel Kim, Quinn Lozar, Josh Schechter and Cougar MacDowall.
Avila’s previous credits include Life in Pieces, Young & Hungry, Harry’s Law and Hole to Hole!
