Ruben Blades to Receive Raul Julia Award for Latin Actors

NEW YORK – Panamanian singer and actor Ruben Blades will be honored with the Raul Julia Award by the Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors during its annual gala on Oct. 17.

The 62-year-old Blades is best known as a salsa icon and former presidential candidate, but he also has appeared in more than a score of films since 1983.

In 1999, he played the role of Mexican artist Diego Rivera in “Cradle Will Rock,” directed by Tim Robbins. Most recently, he was a cast member in an English-language film about Mexico’s 1926-1929 Cristero War titled “Cristiada,” which stars Andy Garcia and Eva Longoria and currently is in post-production.

HOLA also said Friday that Puerto Rican actor Luis Guzman, who acts in the series “How to Make It in America” that airs on cable TV channel HBO, will on the same day receive the Excellence in Movies Award.

Meanwhile the host of the “Today Show,” Natalia Morales, will be honored with the Excellence in Media Award.

The organization said that next month it will announce the names of other actors who will be awarded prizes in this year’s 22nd gala, when the event is staged at Manhattan’s Battery Gardens within sight of the Statue of Liberty.
