It was just announced that actor Diego Boneta will play the role of Luis Miguel in Telemundo’s upcoming TV series.
“Luis Miguel, the Series” is set to air on Telemundo in the U.S. It will be distributed in Latin America and Spain by Netflix in 2018.
Telemundo has released several successful bio-musicals, including “Celia,” based on Celia Cruz, and “Hasta Que Te Conoci,” about Juan Gabriel.

People will travel alongside with me through a surprising, unexpected and emotional journey that has shaped the artist and the person that I am today,” Luis Miguel said, according to Billboard.
Here’s why Boneta (or should I say Buenote) is the perfect choice to play Luis Miguel.
Umm… talk about similar smiles.
They both know a thing or two about slick hair…
… And nice suits.
What dapper dudes.
More importantly, this 26-year-old is a triple threat!
Check out his moves on “Pretty Little Liars.”
Boneta can actually sing! His breakthrough role was Rocco Bezauri on the Spanish telenovela “Rebelde.”
Boneta’s singing skills helped him snag a role on “Rebelde,” and he eventually transitioned into becoming a bonafide pop singer.
Here’s a music video from Boneta’s debut album.

Boneta has released two albums so far: his debut “Diego” and “Indigo.” He could have just been a singer for the rest of his life, but you cannot put this kind of talent into a box. You have to let it roam free.
Boneta also has major crossover appeal. Remember him as Javier Luna on “90210”?

That was probably not the best clip, considering he gets killed. However, it does show he has a dramatic flare. Don’t believe us??
Boneta doesn’t just look good on the small screen. He can carry a feature film!
He was the main love interest in the 2012 musical “Rock of Ages.” Looks like Boneta can do it all!
So, what’s left to say… you ready, Diego?
Beause 2018 cannot come fast enough!
