Diego Boneta Will Portray Mexican Superstar Luis Miguel in The Upcoming Telemundo Miniseries
Mexican actor and singer Diego Boneta is set to play Luis Miguel in the upcoming Telemundo and Gato Grande’s TV series, and we cannot contain our excitement. The miniseries is based on the life of internationally renowned music and Grammy award-winning superstar Luis Miguel, and will air exclusively in the U.S. on Telemundo.
Best known for his roles in the Mexican TV show Rebelde, and English-language series including Pretty Little Liars, Diego has also acted alongside Tom Cruise in the film Rock of Ages and was also in 2015’s Scream Queens. Diego also released two albums including his debut “Diego” and follow up “Indigo.”

Interestingly enough, the first story ever written about Diego called him a young Luis Miguel, and the first time Diego performed in public, he sang a Luis Miguel song.
It’s no coincidence that he was chosen to play such an iconic role.
