Sexy Sunday: Demian Bichir
By Alex Cranz
Like a lot of American I didn’t notice the hotness factor of Demián Bichir until he was on Weeds spanking Mary Louise Parker and working a major component of a Mexican drug cartel…and also as the mayor of Tijuana.
But after those first few episodes I was kind of in love–not with his character. That guy is abusive, controlling, evil, and murdered off-screen. No, I was a little in love with Mr. Bichir himself.
The guy is great looking
but he’s also a fantastic actor with a massive filmography of great films in Mexico.
And once upon a time four years ago he was one of the best parts of Steven Soderbergh’s plodding Che. Playing? Fidel Castro.
And right now? Right now he’s busy being in the running for a Best Actor award at the Oscars for playing a determined immigrant in A Better Life.
Good luck Mr. Bichir. I will be rooting for you, and also watching all of your films from Mexico.
