Michael Pena Interview for “Cesar Chavez” 

Michael Pena is one of the sweetest, most down-to-earth guys in Hollywood! That’s why his new role, “Cesar Chavez,” is a perfect fit for the actor. Like the activist leader, Pena is humble and speaks the truth. And yes, he gained weight to play the part!

The last time I spoke with the actor, it was for the fantastic “End of Watch” in 2012. Now, the actor is in a quiet, soulful movie about how a revolution happened. In this interview, we talked about his interest for the role, gaining weight, and the big part that the Filipino people had in the revolution led by Chavez.

Aloe Blacc is having a great momentum! Starting with his collaboration with Avicii last year, the Billboard smash “Wake Me Up,” Blacc followed that with the addictive “The Man” single, his new album (which I love, by the way) called “Lift Your Spirit,” and then now, he’s on America’s favorite singing competition, “The Voice,” as a mentor for Team Adam. I sat down with the singer/songwriter to talk about:

*** His interest in joining “The Voice” and Team Adam
*** Why is “The Voice” such a big hit?
*** His advice to the contestants
*** Would he join “The Voice” if he’s just starting out?
*** Working with Avicii
*** What advice would he give to Madonna since the Queen of Pop is currently working with Avicii for her new album
*** What surprises are in store for his upcoming performance at the super-hot Coachella Music Festival?
