THR's 35 Hottest Young Latinos in Entertainment
Playing Manny on the ABC hit Modern Family, which has earned two best comedy Emmys, is all about fun for Rodriguez, 14, but his goals don’t end there. “There are not that many Latino superheroes out there, and I would love to be the first one that kids could look up to,” he says. The Mexican-American actor hosted Red Carpet Live for the Oscars in 2011 and was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for breakout male in 2010. He’ll continue on Family in the fall and has written a book, Reel Life Lessons ... So Far, due out in November.
