He does not look right for the role. But I am sure he will be good.

yeah, he’s not dark enough nor is his hair kinky enough to play a Sammy Sosa type(pre-bleaching) Dominican. Maybe they should have chosen a dread-locked haired Manny Ramirez type.

Corbin Bleu…………..he needed the money

Looks like your typical Dominican baseball player to me.

He’s cute, but I think he’s going to be terrible. I’ve seen ‘The Heights’ quite a few times and I’m not picturing him in the role of Usnavi at all. Where’s Javier Munoz (currently in the role) going?? Not to mention all the damn screeching teenyboppers that are now going to pollute the audience when he starts. Vanessa is going to look like his mother! I can’t imagine the rest of the cast being impressed with this nonsense. At least privately.

@Ezo: Why, do they all look alike to you???

Love it! Can’t wait to see him in the role!!!!!!!!

Ugh, I just really can’t see him play the role of Usnavi… :/

He could use the exercise!

Goodness, he looks so ugly without his huge Afro. He looks kind of fruity too. My gaydar is on this one.

He could reach all he wants.

He could reach all he wants.
