Aaron Dominguez is setting the bar…
The 28-year-old Latino actor will star in Amazon Studios’ rom-com Sitting in Bars with Cake.
Rounding out the group, led by previously announced star and EP Yara Shahidi, are Martha Kelly, Adina Porter, Navid Negahban, Simone Recasner, Will Ropp and Charlie Morgan Patton.
Details regarding the characters they will portray are still under wraps.
Sitting in Bars with Cake begins production next month in Los Angeles.
Based on a true story, Sitting in Bars with Cake follows a quiet young woman who is unlucky in love and discovers an unlikely guy magnet when she bakes a cake for her best friend’s birthday and brings it to a bar, only to be swarmed by men. She believes it’s a fluke, but her friend convinces her to commit to a year of baking cakes and bringing them to bars, with the goal of finding true love. The shy young woman’s life subsequently opens up in ways she couldn’t have imagined.
Trish Sie is directing the film from Audrey Shulman’s script adapted from her blog and book of the same name.
Dominguez’s previous credits include Only Murders in the Building, Shaft and Words on Bathroom Walls.
