America Ferrera shared this picture via twitter of herself with Michael Pena. From
"Today is our first day of CHAVEZ rehearsal! Here's a pic of me and Mike Pena- aka Cesar and Helen Chavez! http://say.ly/OKo1HEE"
The biopic of United Farm Workers' founder Cesar Chavez was written by Keir Pearson (Hotel Rwanda) and will be directed by Diego Luna (Y Tu Mama Tambien). Pena will be playing Cesar while America will play his wife Helen Chavez. Also joining the cast is Jacob Vargas playing his brother Richard Chavez and Rosario Dawson playing the role of Civil Rights Activist Dolores Huerta. I can't wait to see some pictures once they get on set.
What do you think about these two playing Chavez and his wife Helen? Let us know in the comments section.
