Los Angeles, CA — Jaime Camil, who plays the dad in the popular CW hit comedy Jane the Virgin has been tagged to be the emcee of the 32nd Annual Television Critics Association (TCA) Awards, taking place on Saturday, August 6, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Camil will be joined in a cameo performance by the beloved telenovela superstar Rogelio De La Vega, who will fill-in for Camil whenever the host during breaks.
The TCA where North America’s top TV critics gather to celebrate outstanding television programs, will present awards in a wide variety of categories and genres, such as news and information; youth; drama; reality; and comedy of the 2015-2016 season.
This summer Camil is starring as Billy Flynn in the 1920’s-set musical about murder and media, Chicago. Camil’s five week run in Chicago began on May 31 and run until July 3rd, with plenty of time to prepare for his double MC duties at the TCA.
His Chicago gig is not, however, Camil’s first time on Broadway. Camil made his Broadway debut in Rick Najera’s Latinologues in 2005. Previous to that he appeared on the U.S. stage in a musical adaptation of The Mambo Kings in San Francisco.
The Mexican/Brazilian star is one of the most well-known actors in the Spanish-speaking world of film, TV and music, and has led musicals in Mexico City including West Side Story, Hook and Aladdin.
