Ignacio Serricchio (ex-Alex Chavez, The Young and the Restless; ex-Diego Sanchez, General Hospital) took to the Internet to share some really big news: he is set to star in a film directed by Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood.
"Excited to finally share [this] incredible news with you all," Serricchio said in an Instagram post understandably full of exclamation points. "What an honor to be a part of this incredibly talented cast. I feel like a student going back to school."
Excited to finally share these incredible news with you all !!! What an honor to be a part of this incredibly talented cast. I feel like a student going back to school. ..... Contento de compartir estas noticias con ustedes finalmente. Que honor ser parte de este increíble elenco. Me siento como un estudiante regresando a la escuela.
In The Mule, Clint Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he's just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel.
The Mule's all-star cast also includes Dianne Wiest, Michael Pena, Laurence Fishburne, Alison Eastwood, and Taissa Farmiga and began shooting Monday in Atlanta.
In addition to having appeared on both Y&R and GH (2004 to 2008), Serricchio can also be currently seen in Netflix's reboot of the 1960s sci-fi series Lost In Space.
