Benecio Del Toro is Che Guevara October 18, 2008

I’ve been a fan of movies about people’s lives or biographies (which are mostly dramatic ones by the way) specially when such a character lived a life that somewhat changed the lives of many in a rebellious, but heroic way.

And when we talk about life changing characters and heroic acts, a lot of names will be in our minds, but one of the names that will surely stand out is the name Che Guevara.

Ernesto “Che” Guevara de la Serna (or who we call as Che Guevara, El Che, or simply Che) is a Argentine Marxist revolutionary, author, politician, military theorist, physician, and a guerrilla leader who have been a symbol of freedom, not only for Latin Americans, but for a lot of people around the world as well. And because he was such a symbol to a lot of people, I wanted to spread this good news ….. we will now see his life on screen with this upcoming movie “Guerilla” sometime in January of 2009.

Benecio is destined to play Che

The famous Che Guevara will be played by the award winning actor Benecio del Toro (yes, the guy who looked like Brad Pitt) and just as expected, it made him earn the Best Actor award in the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.

I guess he really was destined to play the role of El Che. I mean, just look at the photos above and see for yourselves…. he is “Che”.

3 Critical:

  1. Nice Casting – putting in Benecio to play as Che is incomparable… and then there’s Benjamin Bratt and Lou Diamond Phillips. Now this is what you call a good cast.
  2. Not A Music Icon – finally, a movie that would show the people why he was a hero and a symbol of freedom… and above all…. not a reggae artist (like a lot of people think).
  3. Benecio Is Che – please refer to the thumbnails I provided above. Are they not?
