'Last Man's Mel Rodriguez's Career Boomerang is the Most Heartwarming Showbiz Story of the Year
After a long, long build-up, TV’s Golden Age is having its Mel Rodriguez moment; within the past few months, the distinctively cuddly-sized actor has occupied critical roles in not one but three acclaimed series. First, he was seen as Patsy de le Cerda, the hapless head nurse on HBO’s hospital comedy, Getting On. Then he popped up again as the short con accomplice of young Saul Goodman on AMC’s Breaking Bad prequel, “Better Call Saul.” And finally, he made a surprise entrance as Todd, the incarnation of the “Last Man on Earth”s nightmare. We caught up with him by phone as he took a break from “doody duties,” tending to his three month old daughter, Stella. Hitfix: Suddenly, all my favorite shows are centered around Mel Rodriguez. How did this happen? I don’t know man, I really don’t. I’m the luckiest guy in the world.

Cuba Change Raises Hopes for Some Cuban-Americans
José Padron, now 70, was 36 years old when he arrived in Miami from Cuba in 1980, leaving behind a younger brother he hasn't seen for 34 years.

Chef (2014) – The Blu Review

The Movie on its own merit…

There are some experiences that, while not life changing, are life reaffirming and leave an impression not easily forgotten. Arguably, the best kinds of these experiences are the ones that are fully unexpected. Being caught off guard, leaving the unmistakable mark of joy stretched across one’s face. Moments that make us smile, spontaneously. I am reminded of the very first time I had an authentic Cuban sandwich, which happened to be off a food truck in Austin, Texas. Watching Jon Favreau’s newest film, Chef, is the cinematic equivalent.

From the filmmaker who Made (2001) an independent first impression, immortalized Will Ferrell as a holiday staple in Elf (2003) and realized the Iron Man trilogy on the big screen, its refreshing to see writer and director Jon Favreau returning to his smaller, indie roots with Chef. Favreau also stars as the film’s central character,

Watch: Tom Wolfe Takes Miami

Watch: Tom Wolfe Takes Miami
Miami -- Oscar Corral thought someone was yanking his chain the day the phone rang at The Miami Herald newsroom and a soft-spoken voice with just a hint of southern drawl said: "Oscar Corral, this is Tom Wolfe."

That would be master journalist-turned-novelist Tom Wolfe.

For decades Wolfe had traversed the country in his trademark white suit and fedora, sending up the idiosyncrasies of rich and poor in novels like the New York City-based "The Bonfire of the Vanities," and "A Man in Full," set in Atlanta. Now the satirist had his sights on Miami, and he wanted then-reporter Corral's help.

Over the course of several years beginning in 2008, Corral became a tour guide and translator for Wolfe, taking the famed author from Miami's raucous Columbus Day Regatta to Little Haiti's Santeria shops. With Wolfe's approval, Corral began filming their escapades. The result is the documentary "Blood Lines," which follows

Pharrell Uses His Sex Magic On Gloria Estefan

Pharrell Uses His Sex Magic On Gloria Estefan
New York -- Conga, merengue, salsa, cumbia. And also pop. Rock. Folk.

As a singer, Gloria Estefan has offered a whole palette of flavors and colors to her fans, both in English and in Spanish. But with her new English album, "Miss Little Havana," the Cuban star reveals a side she had yet not explored with the tone of her voice – one of great sensuality. She attributes her newest producer Pharrell, who has created hits for the likes of Madonna, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Jay-z and more, with helping bring out her sexier side on the Latin dance album.

"I am indeed, much more comfortable in my own skin," said Estefan, 54, in a recent interview with The Associated Press.

"I think women, as we get older, we can just let go of a lot of things," added the artist, who gained fame in the 1980s as the lead singer of the Miami Sound Machine.

Mexican Singer Paulina Rubio Arrested After Car Crash in Miami

Mexican Singer Paulina Rubio Arrested After Car Crash in Miami
Paulina Rubio fought the law this weekend in Miami...and the law won. After crashing her BMW into another car Saturday, the Mexican pop singer was arrested near Miami's Little Havana. It wasn't the smashup itself that landed the Latin sensation in handcuffs, however, but a clash with cops after the accident. So what did Rubio do to provoke the police—and how did her 6-month-old baby save her a trip to the slammer? According to the arrest report, Rubio was asked to get out of her car but refused, cursing at one officer on the scene and telling police, "All of you Miami cops are abusive." The report goes on to say that after Rubio refused the officer's requests,...
