The Colombian actor will play Venezuela’s former president, Hugo Chávez, in the series “Huge Chávez: El Comandante.” This will be the first show to tell the story of Chávez, who was in power from 1999 until his dead on March 5, 2013. He died from colon cancer at 58, but his politics and rules live on in Venezuela.

The series is being produced by Sony and if his transformation is any indication of how good it’s going to be, we’re hooked.
