The 15 Best Rogelio De La Vega Moments From “Jane The Virgin”

Where do I even start with my love for Rogelio De La Vega on “Jane the Virgin”?! In my opinion, he is one of the funniest characters on television right now.

THERE, I SAID IT.

Jane’s charmingly vain father is everything. If you aren’t watching this show, what in the world is wrong with you?! ¡Vámonos!

In honor of my favorite TV dad, here are 15 of Rogelio’s best moments.

1. That time he casually threw out the phrase “making love.”

Well you don’t have to twist this arm!

2. He’s the best at encouraging Xo, especially when it comes to Jane.

This is honestly the highest of compliments coming from Rogelio.

3. When he did his dope handshake with Michael.

Their bromance is seriously one for the books. The stuff legends are made of. When will Hollywood give the people what they want, a spinoff buddy cop movie starring Michael and Rogelio.

4. Every time he uses “hashtag” in a sentence.

He’s up on the trendy lingo and he wants you to know it.

5. When he refused to be sassed by anyone.

You tell ’em, Rogelio! Ain’t nobody going to mess with him.

6. Every time he was oh-so-humble.

Hey, when you got it, flaunt it!

7. When he understood the importance of family, especially because it was also important to Xo.

TEARS. STREAMING. DOWN MY FACE. I’m not sure whether I want Rogelio to adopt me or marry me. It’s hard to say. And confusing, so I’m not going to think about it much longer.

8. When he told Abuela she’s still got it going on.

Credit: CW

Alba can get it! A spin-off series where these two ride into the sunset? I could dig it.

9. When he was all of us, all of the time.

Credit: CW

Aren’t we all?! 24/7 BABY.

10. When he explained the fundamentals of Broadway and Bradley Cooper.

Credit: CW

I love that Rogelio thinks Bradley Cooper is cool. It’s great.

11. When he loved shopping as much as all of us.

Credit: CW

Oh, the importance of wearing new pants! The cure to those midweek blahs! We totally get it.

12. When he was addicted to technology, like all of us.

Credit: CW

But can a person really have too many phones?

13. When he knew the importance of flattering angles.

Credit: CW

Lighting is everything, even when you’re kidnapped by a deranged stalker and are held at gunpoint.

14. When he asked Xo the question we were all thinking.

Credit: CW

You’ve got to appreciate a straightforward man.

15. Last but not least, when we were #blessed with a Britney cameo and he knew it was time to let Britney Spears fly on her own.

Praise you, Rogelio. May you never change because you are truly perfect.

Sasha Calle Is Officially The DC Universe’s First-Ever Latina Supergirl

The DC Universe just got a heck of a lot more Brown.

This week, it was announced that 25-year-old actress Sasha Calle is poised to be the franchise’s newest superstar. Known for portraying Lola Rosales on “The Young and the Restless,” the actress will take on the role of Supergirl in the DC film franchise.

Her first appearance as Supergirl expected to debut in the upcoming movie “The Flash.”

Calle, who is of Colombian heritage, is set to become the first Latina ever to play the role of Supergirl.

Calle earned her first breakout role in 2018 after being cast in the long-running CBS daytime drama “The Young & The Restless” as a food truck owner and the youngest sister of brothers in the midst of a toxic rivalry.

Calle earned a Daytime Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Young Performer in a Drama Series category last year for her part in the series.

“On behalf of everyone at ‘The Young and the Restless,’ we’d like to congratulate Sasha Calle on making history and being chosen to play the first Latina Supergirl,” the daytime drama’s executive producer Anthony Morina and co-executive producer/head writer Josh Griffith shared in a statement. “The role of Supergirl is a perfect fit for someone of Sasha’s immense talent, and we wish her all the best as she takes on this groundbreaking role.”

According to Deadline, Calle beat out 425 actresses for the part of Supergirl.

Andy Muschietti director of The Flash gave Calle the good news about her role over Zoom.

“Can I freak out for a second?” Calle asked before announcing the news to someone offscreen. “I got it,” she said to the person off-camera while doing a dance in her chair. Turning back to Muschietti, Calle admitted “I’m probably not going to stop crying all day.”

Calle shared the moment to her Instagram admitting she was still processing the big news.

“A Latina superhero?!” Calle wrote of the news in Spanish. “On what planet?! Well, on this planet! What joy and what pride.” Thanking her mom, Calle wrote, “I adore you with everything I have. You are an example of a superhero.”
