If you haven't heard of the film Compadres, then let me explain it to you: A former Mexican cop, Garza, is released from prison and seeks revenge on the man who has kidnapped his girlfriend. His partner in crime, though, is a 17-year-old American computer hacker, Vic. They also call him a "gringo hacker" in the trailer:
The best part of the film, though? Omar Chaparro. Now, you've probably never heard of him, but he's huge in Mexico — and social media. The guy has more than 6 million Twitter followers and 1.7 million Facebook followers! So, uh, yes, now would be a great time to get to know him.
Omar Chaparro: "I've always been a very lucky guy. A lot of crazy things have happened in my career, but I guess the first big break was when I moved to Mexico City from Chihuahua. I was so desperate to get a job on TV (with no money), that I dressed as an old lady, went to the TV channel and said to security that I was the producer's grandma and had brought him lunch. Obviously, they didn't let me in; but lucky me, the producer was arriving, and when he saw me, he didn't know what to think. I told him, 'I'm your grandma here's your lunch, honey,' and I got my first TV show in Mexico."
OC: I'm afraid to be afraid in a crucial moment. I'm afraid that a certain situation drives me to be someone that I am not, and I always want to be honest and real. I want to be me.
OC: "Kind of — Jack Black and Eric Roberts, to name a few. I was more excited than nervous, but yes."
OC: "I was almost one of The Magnificent Seven. I love horses and guns."
OC: "I don't like to think on obstacles. I guess that if you focus your mind on obstacles, they will grow bigger. The biggest obstacle that you can have is all inside your head, so I try every day to be optimistic and keep dreaming about great things!"
OC: "The key to success is to love what you do or to do what you love, no matter if you're doing it big time or in a small way. As long you feel complete, loved and happy with a purpose, and you have the appreciation for every little thing that surrounds you, that's success for me."
OC: "That's one of the things that I love the most and that makes not only Hollywood, but America the great country that it is. I'm not complaining — I celebrate it, and I think there are a sea of opportunities because of that."
OC: "If I could choose, I would say Natalie Portman and Leonardo DiCaprio."
OC: "There are a lot of things that they don't know about me yet! I would say they don't know me at all, but I guess that's great because now I have the chance to surprise them and make friends."
OC: "Incredibly happy!!!"
