THR's 35 Hottest Young Latinos in Entertainment
In his first major film, Boneta, 21, took the lead opposite Julianne Hough in this summer’s adaptation of Broadway hit Rock of Ages, which got the Mexican actor nominated for an Alma Award (set to air Sept. 21 on NBC) alongside Benicio Del Toro and Andy Garcia. “The most pride would come from hopefully doing a project with one of those actors,” he says. Boneta made a name for himself with roles on The CW’s 90210 and ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars. On Oct. 16, MTV’s Underemployed from producer Craig Wright (Dirty Sexy Money) will premiere with Boneta co-starring. The actor also is a successful singer in Latin America and is working on his first English-language album with The Voice’s Adam Levine, scheduled for release this year or in early 2013.
