‘Magnum P.I.’ Is Getting A Reboot And They Are Including A Latino Actor

There are so many TV show reboots scheduled this year with Latinos that it might be hard for you to keep up. There’s the “Party of Five” reboot, the new version of “Charmed” — and now “Magnum P.I.” This is clearly a trend since “Full House” and “One Day At A Time” were also rebooted with Latino stories. “Magnum P.I.” might be a little too old for some people but here is the young face they are including that you probably know.

Jay Hernandez will be playing the lead role of Magnum P.I. in an upcoming reboot.

The Montebello-native, who most recently can be seen in “Scandal” and “Suicide Squad,” has signed up to play the title role of Thomas Magnum, aka Magnum P.I.

According to Variety: Hernandez will play a “decorated ex-Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator.”

People are totally into Hernandez being cast for the lead role.

Freddy Rodriguez and Luis Guzman were co-stars with Hernandez on “Nothing Like the Holidays” in 2008.

And him being a Latino in the lead definitely plays into people’s excitement.

If you’re wondering why this show was so popular back in the ’80s, here’s a little explainer:

The show aired for eight years from 1980 to 1988 and people loved it.

The show was hugely popular mostly because Tom Selleck, who played Magnum P.I., was pretty hot.

Clearly Hernandez will do perfectly well in that category.

Audiences also couldn’t get enough of Selleck’s mustache.

We’re not sure if the new version of Magnum P.I. will also feature a mustache, but we could definitely be into Hernandez sporting some facial hair.

The show is still just in the development stages so there is no date set for its release.

All we do know is that Hernandez will definitely deliver.

Lil Papi Of ‘Pose’ Is Breaking Hearts And Changing Relationship Standards Every Episode

Since the premiere of FX’s “Pose,” the show’s subject matter put the series on another level. Had you ever seen a TV series based on the New York City iconic ballroom culture on television before? Didn’t think so. While mainstream programming has ventured into programming featuring the LGBTQ+ community, “Pose” brought forth a new kind of experience, mainly because of its incredible stars. One, in particular, is finally getting the attention he deserves.

Angel Bismark Curiel, who plays Lil Papi, is getting more screen time in season two and people are starting to pay attention.

We didn’t see much of Lil Papi in the first season, but he was up to no good. The Dominican-American actor did an incredible job that first season. But back then he was selling drugs, and Blanca (played by MJ Rodriguez) wasn’t having it so she kicked him out. This season, however, Lil Papi got his act together thanks to love.

Lil Papi and Angel (played by Indya Moore) have embarked on a new romance and Curiel’s acting skills are in full bloom.

In season two we see this love blossom, and we didn’t really see it coming, but now that we’re here we’re rooting for these two.

“Angel Bismark Curiel is really stepping it up this season and might even be the MVP of the episode,” AV writer Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya said. “Leading up to this episode, even when they aren’t the main focus of the scene, the chemistry between Lil Papi and Angel has been palpable, and Papi seemingly worships her. It’s sweet, and it’s nothing short of revolutionary to see a trans woman get a beautiful, fully fleshed out love story on a major television show. Mock directs these big romantic scenes superbly, too. Their first kiss is as dramatic and captivating as it should be.”

People are (understandably) drooling over Lil Papi and his swoon-worthy looks.

Yas, Lil Papi. Look at him on the beach and on the pool serving those Lil Papi looks we have come to love. Who couldn’t fall in love with that smile and face?

Lil Papi’s big love and energy is giving men a very high bar in the love department.

Looks like men everywhere are going to have to step their game up. Lil Papi is relentless in showing Angel all the love and respect she deserves. Not only does he defend her and care for her, he is unapologetic and unstoppable in supporting all of her dreams and ambitions.

Honestly, the world doesn’t deserve a love as pure and real as Lil Papi’s.

Fortunately, his love and honesty are giving everyone a glimpse into what you should be expecting from your lovers. They should do anything for you, like Lil Papi. If they aren’t, are they really worth your time?

Oh! It’s also rumored that Curiel is dating author and “Pose” producer Janet Mock.

Mock and her husband divorced earlier this year, and Curiel captioned the picture above by saying “Date night.” We love them as a couple!

We can’t wait to see what else this season has in store for Lil Papi.

A Single Mom On DACA Is One Of The Newest Cast Members On MTV’s New Season Of ‘The Real World

MTV / Facebook Watch

Did you know MTV still films “The Real World”? Yeah, we didn’t either. Turns out 27 years since they first aired the revolutionary reality TV show of “seven strangers picked to live in a house…to find out what happens … when people stop being polite … and start getting real,” the network has not stopped. Despite MTV’s viewership considerably different from back in the day, the network is still pumping out the show, but we’re actually looking forward to this season because of one cast member.

The new season of MTV’s “Real World” taking place in Atlanta includes a DACA beneficiary.

Meet Arely, a 21-year-old single mom from the Midwest. Arely is the youngest in the house and is the first “Real World” castmate to have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.

Arely came to the U.S. from Mexico when she was a child with her parents and had a baby when she was 16.

According to her bio, “Arely became pregnant and began to realize the challenges of being a teen mom. She always imagined life as a registered nurse but found she was unable to take her nursing exam due to her status as a DREAMer. After years of hard work and sacrifice, Arely is ready for adventure and new opportunities.”

The new season airs June 13 on Facebook Watch and looks like things will get heated for Arely.

Facebook/@realworldonwatch

One of her roommates actually said to her that people should come to the U.S. legally to her face. Ugh! As if she had a choice.

Her problems are way more crucial to life than random hookups and barfing in the sink.

We will see how this season goes down, but it should be more fun to watch especially because viewers can have real-time reactions on social media.

Here’s more about Arely.

Meet Arely! | Real World: Atlanta

Meet Arely! A 21 year-old dreamer with a 4 year-old son. The Real World: Atlanta premieres June 13. Exclusively on Facebook Watch.
