Elian Gonzalez: Next Top Telenovela Hunk?
Now that little Elian Gonzalez is all grown up could he be the next hunky telenovela superstar?
Thursday, April 8, 2010 16:09 GMTSAN JOSE, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Little Elian Gonzalez is all grown up now and could make a real splash as a telenovela actor.
Earlier this week, the Cuban government released new photos of 16-year-old Gonzalez looking rather hunky.
Arguably, hes now tall, dark, and handsome enough to land a role in a juicy Latin telenovela.
Ben Spade who runs telenovela-world.com says Elians good looks and name recognition alone could be enough for him to find success as a telenovela star.
Spade says the Cuban teens life certainly has aspects of a telenovela with the twists and tragedies hes faced since being found floating off the coast of Florida 10 years ago.
As a result of hard living, Spade agrees that Elian may be able to easily tap into his emotions for a powerful performance onscreen.
Meanwhile, Antonis Triantos of telenovelas.gr says Elians tale could be the plot for a classic Latin soap, the only thing missing is steamy romance.
Triantos notes that back in 1999 before Elians immigration ordeal Mexicos Televisa ran a soap called El Nino Que Vino Del Mar The Boy Who Came From The Sea about a 10-year-old boy who travels by boat with his mother until she goes missing.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
