Gael, John Malkovich and possibly George Clooney will make a cameo on "Chavez"

Yesterday, I mentioned on my comment over Heat's latest post that Gael was in Hermosillo to follow "Chavez" filming, once he is one of the producers. But he is more than that: he will make a cameo on the movie and yesterday he shot his first scenes. In a press conference, Diego said that he is expecting John Malkovich and his friend Jesus Ochoa to join them in Hermosillo in the next few days. And there is a good chance that George Clooney will make an appearance on the movie as well, but Diego didn't confirm this information.

UPDATE: May 27, 2012

Here are five articles about Gael's first day on the movie set:
