HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – Brad Pitt will be joining Disney Films in producing the story about an undocumented immigrant from Mexico who came to the United States at 19 and started working on farms in California, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Dr. Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa saved up a ton of money and enrolled in Harvard Medical School. He is currently the head of brain tumor surgery at the famous Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Pitt’s company, Plan B, first started a relationship with the doctor in 2007 and it is now all coming together. Matthew Lopez will be writing the script focused on the surgeon’s life.

Today, Plan B and Disney announced that soon-to-be ex-presidential candidate Marco Rubio will play the role of Quiñones-Hinojosa. Rubio, in real life, is Latino of Cuban heritage.

Pitt told The Adobo Chronicles that the shooting of the film had been put on hold pending the outcome of Rubio’s candidacy, but now that it has become certain that the senator is not going to be the Republican nominee for president, the film production goes in high gear.

It will be a welcome change in career for the handsome Rubio. His selection to play the lead role will be free of criticism in Hollywood where white actors are constantly  being tapped to play the roles of people of color.

The Internet group #oscarssowhite immediately praised Rubio’s selection to play the film’s lead character.



HOLLYWOOD, Florida (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Yesterday, we reported that the new season series of ‘The Muppets’ will premiere next Tuesday on ABC with additional new cast featuring 12 of the Republican presidential candidates.

One candidate, Cuban American Marco Rubio, was left out of the cast.

Upon seeing the promo for the new “Muppets” with the faces of his fellow Republican candidates, Rubio immediately cried ‘foul’ and accused ABC of racial discrimination. ‘They invited and cast all the leading Republican presidential candidates except myself, a Latino,’ Rubio said. ‘What is ABC’s beef with a Cuban American?’image

ABC executives responded to Rubio, saying that the new show only had room for 12 people, considering that it already had a cast of dozens of puppets.

But  today, ABC seemed to have found its way out of Rubio’s complaint. Former Texas Governor Rick Perry just announced that he was dropping out of the presidential race, creating a vacancy in The Muppets cast.

So Rubio is in.  All is well that ends well!



LOS ANGELES, California  (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has some harsh words for actor Matt Damon.

On Wednesday,  Damon described Trump’s speech on immigrants as “xenophobic,” “disgusting” and “dehumanizing” in an exclusive interview with EFE, the Spanish International News Agency.

Damon, 44, is married to an Argentine immigrant with whom he has three children.

The actor said he did not know “how to respond” to Trump’s comments, who had called illegal Mexicans “rapists” and “drug traffickers” and proposed deporting 11 million immigrants in the country and building a wall separating United States from Mexico.

“He is talking about anyone who lives south of our border in inhuman terms. He is talking about my wife, my daughters,” said Damon.

In response, Trump called Damon, ‘Anti- White’ and ‘Pro-Martian.’ “He should be deportd to planet Mars,” he said.

Damon is currently promoting his new movie “The Martian.”
